Menu Emulation

This example demonstrates how the ASPxRibbon control can be customized to implement the look and feel of a menu. For this purpose, all items are displayed with large icons (the Size property is set to Large). The following properties are used to hide ribbon elements.

The "Demonstrate the ribbon adaptive layout functionality" check box allows you to change the control width to demonstrate a ribbon’s adaptive layout design. When a ribbon control has insufficient space to display all of its items, groups with more than one item are collapsed, and each collapsed group displays an expand button.


Although you can use the ribbon to emulate a menu, DevExpress offers the ASPxMenu control, which adds menu functionality to your application.
