Bind your Telerik ASP.NET Menu control to the data source that best suits your project, be it to a declarative DataSource control, such as EntityDataSource, LinqDataSource, or programmatically on demand to DataSet, DataView, DataTable or any other custom object. Leverage the hierarchical data-binding support of the menu component, or provide the data via Web, WCF or OData Service.
Use RadContextMenu to add attractive and user-friendly context popup menus with ease. This stand-alone control is designed to provide additional options to users following a right mouse click on any control or HTML element on the page.
Set horizontal or vertical direction for the root menu items by changing a single property and instantly make the Telerik Menu for ASP.NET AJAX fit your web app design and requirements. Control the flow of the child items by setting drop down menu orientation per item.
Determine the expand direction for the menu child items. Choose between Up, Down, Right, Left or allow the control to automatically determine the direction using its built-in boundary detection (which is enabled with a single property). By default, the horizontal menu expands its items down, and the vertical menu – to the right.
Why should you build a mobile version of your application when the same app can work equally well on mobile and desktop devices? Telerik ASP.NET Menu makes this possible by:
Arrange your menu items in multiple columns by setting a single property. Choose the repeat direction, vertical or horizontal, to make sure the items are displayed in the most convenient way for your end users.
Enhance the visual appeal of your menus by enabling rounded corners for the menu child items or activating the shadows effect. Take advantage of the built-in animations upon expand and collapse and define their duration and/or delay.
Create custom look and feel for the Telerik Menu in ASP.NET by defining your own server or client template. Use the same template for all items, or specify different ones on an item level.
Use the rich API to manipulate the menu component with code and implement advanced and specific scenarios. All the properties and events you need are available both on the server and on the client, so you can choose the programming approach that best suits you.
Telerik ASP.NET Menu is Section 508 compliant and covers level AA compliance with the W3C Web Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. This makes the control accessible to people with disabilities, as well as users of all kind of devices and interfaces: desktop browser, voice browser, mobile phone, etc. RadMenu is optimized to work in Windows High Contrast mode. Right-to-left mode and keyboard support are also available out of the box.
Enable RadMenu scrolling with a single property in case you have too many menu items to fit in the available space.
Do you need to save custom data for the different menu items? With RadMenu you can add custom attributes and assign their values both inline (directly in the markup) and programmatically (both client-side and server-side).
Adapt RadMenu to your needs by defining specific settings for each menu level, such as different data source, text field, image URL field, CSS class, or any other menu property.
Set validation groups to your menus to make sure validation is properly executed while your end users navigate your application.
