All Components

Menus Overview

The Menu package contains the Menu and ContextMenu components.

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates the Menu and ContextMenu components in action.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { items } from './items';

@Component({
    selector: 'my-app',
    template: `
        <div #target>
            Target
        </div>
        <kendo-contextmenu [target]="target" [items]="items">
        </kendo-contextmenu>
        <kendo-menu [items]="items">
        </kendo-menu>
    `
})
export class AppComponent {
    public items: any[] = items;
}
export const items: any[] = [{
    text: 'Item1',
    items: [{ text: 'Item1.1' }, { text: 'Item1.2', items: [{ text: 'Item1.2.1' }, { text: 'Item1.2.2' }] }]
}, {
    text: 'Item2',
    items: [{ text: 'Item2.1' }, { text: 'Item2.2' }, { text: 'Item2.3' }]
}, {
    text: 'Item3'
}];
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
import { MenusModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-menu';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

@NgModule({
  imports: [ BrowserModule, BrowserAnimationsModule, MenusModule ],
  declarations: [ AppComponent ],
  bootstrap: [ AppComponent ]
})

export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';

import { AppModule } from './app.module';

const platform = platformBrowserDynamic();
platform.bootstrapModule(AppModule);

Installation

Either use the quick setup (Angular CLI v6 or later) or manually add the package (Angular CLI v5 or earlier).

Quick Setup with Angular CLI v6 or Later

Angular CLI v6 supports the addition of packages through the ng add command which executes in one step the set of otherwise individually needed commands.

ng add @progress/kendo-angular-menu

Manual Setup

All components that you reference during the installation will be present in the final bundle of your application. To avoid ending up with components you do not actually need, either:

  • Import all Menu components at once by using the MenusModule, or
  • Import a specific component by adding it as an individual NgModule.

  1. Download and install the package.

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-angular-menu @progress/kendo-angular-l10n
  2. For Angular 6, install the rxjs-compat package. For more information, refer to the article on upgrading to Angular 6.

    npm install --save rxjs-compat@6

    For Angular 5 or earlier, install RxJS v5.5+.

    npm install --save rxjs@^5.5
  3. Once installed, import the NgModule of the components you need.

    To get all package components, import the MenusModule in your application root or feature module.

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
    import { MenusModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-menu';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    
    @NgModule({
       bootstrap:    [AppComponent],
       declarations: [AppComponent],
       imports:      [BrowserModule, BrowserAnimationsModule, MenusModule]
    })
    export class AppModule {
    }

    The package also exports the following modules for individual components:

    • MenuModule
    • ContextMenuModule

    To reduce the size of your application, include only the ones you need.

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
       import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
       import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
    
       // Imports the Menu module
       import { MenuModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-charts';
    
       // Imports the ContextMenu module
       import { ContextMenuModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-charts';
    
       @NgModule({
           bootstrap: [AppComponent],
           imports:   [
               BrowserModule, BrowserAnimationsModule,
               MenuModule, ContextMenuModule
           ]
       })
       export class AppModule {
       }
  4. You are required to install one of the Kendo UI themes for Angular to style your component. For more information on how to add the styles, refer to the section on styling.

Dependencies

The Menus require you to install the following peer dependencies in your application:

  • @angular/animations
  • @angular/common
  • @angular/core
  • rxjs
  • @progress/kendo-angular-l10n

The following dependencies are automatically installed:

  • @progress/kendo-angular-popup

The Menu package utilizes the Angular animation system, which supports a specific set of browsers.
