I'm using the Kendo UI Menu for Angular 1 to list projects users can access in a solution. Is it possible to use JSON objects received from a WebAPI directly as menuItems or will I have to remap these into simpler objects? In this demo you are using custom attributes, will I be able to access these in the select event (how?)?
Further more, is it possible to access the datasource from another function in my Angular controller? I am currently storing the project ID in localstorage and if I'm able to use JSON objects or custom attributes in MenuItems I'd like to access the datasource so I can retrieve properties/attributes from the MenuItems.
