ExpertMenu Designer is the easy-to-use, explorer-like
tool for editing ExpertMenu structure and view that is
integrated with Visual Studio©.
ExpertMenu Designer allows you to avoid boring editing ASPX
and XML tags and attributes.
Right-click on the ExpertMenu in design mode and select Edit Menu Data.
ExpertMenu Designer will start.
ExpertMenu Designer allows you to select one of the built-in
- You can choose using the selected skin as embedded. In this case
the control's Skin property will contain only the name of the used skin.
- Choose Load skin's look collection in order to load looks from the
resource into the control's Looks collection. This will allow you
to further tune the looks for your needs.
ExpertMenu Designer allows you to quickly define the looks and structure of
the menu and set properties for individual looks, items, separators, groups as well as
define base looks for menu objects.
You can quickly select Base looks for items, separators and groups, as well as
Embedded images for icons and backgrounds, from drop down lists.
By default, the menu configuration is saved in the containing ASPX file. This
allows achieving the best performance and keeping the menu definition in one place only.
However, you can save the menu configuration in an external XML file and in the future
use it for dynamic menu load. See demo for the
example of how to do the load from XML.
Click Close after completion editing the menu.
