ExpertMenu DesignerOverview

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 skins.

  • 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.
