  • hover popdown on subsequent menus #101004

    Windows and Macintosh computers have the functionality of:
    1. to get a menubar menu to pop down you have to click on it
    2. once you click on it, it pops down and hovering over a submenu
    automatically pops it down
    3. clicking on a menu item shrinks up the menu
    4. After clicking on a menu, if you hover over another
    top level menu it pops down.

    By using
    $(“#js_menubar_id”).jqxMenu({autoOpen: false, clickToOpen: false})
    I can get functionality 1, 2, and 3, but not 4.
    Is there a way to get functionality 4?

    Hello fry,

    Unfortunately, we do not provide such built-in functionality.
    When autoOpen is set to false, you should click on the menu item to open it.

    You can implement your own logic by changing the autoOpen property dynamically.

    Best Regards,

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    My app originally had hovering automatically pops down the menu
    when you hover over it. I was use to it.
    But my users complained that clicking was standard
    behavior on both Macs and Windows, and because of such,
    they preferred doing the extra click.

    As I scrutinized windows and mac menu bars more carefully,
    I realized that this click to open menu
    was only true for the first menu you opened.
    So I’m guessing that you’ll have other users of
    jqx implemented apps complain too.

    I don’t know how hard it would be for you to make a special
    windows-and-mac_menu-bar-behavior flag,
    but probably easier than me!
    Hopefully my users won’t miss the
    hover pops down non-first menus as much as they
    miss click to open first.

    I understand this is subtle.
    Thanks for your explanation.

    PS: when browsing the forums and I’m not logged in,
    I see “You must be logged in to post”
    but Its quite difficult to log in.
    I suggest you make that easier, including
    have the “You must be logged in to post” be clickable
    and takes you to your log in page.
