The Essential JS 2 for JavaScript (global script) is an ES5 formatted pure JavaScript framework which can be directly used in latest web browsers.

Dependencies

The following list of dependencies are required to use the Menu control in your application.

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-navigations
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-data
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-lists
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-inputs
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-popups
        |-- @syncfusion/ej2-buttons

Control Initialization

The Essential JS 2 JavaScript controls can be initialized by using either of the following ways.

  • Using local script and style references in a HTML page.
  • Using CDN link for script and style reference.

Using local script and style references in a HTML page

Step 1: Create an app folder quickstart for getting started.

Step 2: You can get the global scripts and styles from the Essential Studio JavaScript (Essential JS 2) build installed location.

Syntax:

Dependency Script: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\{DEPENDENCY_PACKAGE_NAME}\dist\global\{DEPENDENCY_PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Control Script: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\{PACKAGE_NAME}\dist\global\{PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Dependency Styles: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\{DEPENDENCY_PACKAGE_NAME}\styles\material.css

Control Styles: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\{PACKAGE_NAME}\styles\material.css

Example:

Dependency Script: C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\16.3.0.17\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2-base\dist\global\ej2-base.min.js

Control Script: C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\16.3.0.17\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2-navigations\dist\global\ej2-navigations.min.js

Dependency Styles: C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\16.3.0.17\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2-base\styles\material.css

Control Styles: C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\16.3.0.17\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2-navigations\styles\material.css

The below located script and style file contains all Syncfusion JavaScript (ES5) UI control resources in a single file.

Scripts: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2\dist\ej2.min.js

Styles: **(installed location)**\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\JavaScript - EJ2\{RELEASE_VERSION}\Web (Essential JS 2)\JavaScript\ej2\material.css

The Custom Resource Generator (CRG) is an online web tool, which can be used to generate the custom script and styles for a set of specific controls. This web tool is useful to combine the required control scripts and styles in a single file.

Step 3: Create a folder ~/quickstart/resources and copy/paste the global scripts and styles from the above installed location to quickstart/resources/package corresponding package location.

Step 4: Create a HTML page (index.html) in ~/quickstart/index.html location and add the Essentials JS 2 script and style references.

       <head>
          <title>Essential JS 2 - Menu</title>
          <!-- Essential JS 2 Menu's dependent material theme -->
          <link href="resources/base/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
          <link href="resources/lists/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

          <script src="resources/data/ej2-data.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

          <script src="resources/popups/ej2-popups.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

          <!-- Essential JS 2 Menu's control global script -->

       </head>
       <body>
       </body>
  </html>

Step 5: Now, add the Menu element and initiate the Syncfusion JavaScript Menu control in the index.html by using following code

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head>
    <title>Essential JS 2 - Menu</title>

    <link href="resources/navigations/material.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

    <!-- Essential JS 2 Menu's dependent global script -->
    <script src="resources/base/ej2-base.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="resources/data/ej2-data.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="resources/lists/ej2-lists.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="resources/popups/ej2-popups.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <!-- Essential JS 2 Menu's control global script -->
    <script src="resources/navigations/ej2-navigations.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>

<body>
    <!--element which is going to render-->
    <ul id="menu"></ul>

    <script>
        //Menu items definition
        var menuItems = [
            {
                text: 'File',
                items: [
                    { text: 'Open' },
                    { text: 'Save' },
                    { text: 'Exit' }
                ]
            },
            {
                text: 'Edit',
                items: [
                    { text: 'Cut' },
                    { text: 'Copy' },
                    { text: 'Paste' }
                ]
            },
            {
                text: 'View',
                items: [
                    { text: 'Toolbar' },
                    { text: 'Sidebar' }
                ]
            },
            {
                text: 'Tools',
                items: [
                    { text: 'Spelling & Grammar' },
                    { text: 'Customize' },
                    { text: 'Options' }
                ]
            },
            { text: 'Go' },
            { text: 'Help' }
        ];

        // Initialize Menu control.
        var menuObj = new ej.navigations.Menu({ items: menuItems }, '#menu');
    </script>
</body>

</html>

Step 6: Now, run the index.html in web browser, it will render the Syncfusion JavaScript Menu control.

Step 1: Create an app folder quickstart for getting started.

Step 2: The Essential JS 2 control’s global scripts and styles are already hosted in the below CDN link formats.

Syntax:

Dependency Script: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/{DEPENDENCY_PACKAGE_NAME}/dist/global/{PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Control Script: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/{PACKAGE_NAME}/dist/global/{PACKAGE_NAME}.min.js

Dependency Styles: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/{DEPENDENCY_PACKAGE_NAME}/styles/material.css

Control Styles: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/{PACKAGE_NAME}/styles/material.css

Example:

Script: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-navigations/dist/global/ej2-navigations.min.js

Styles: https://cdn.syncfusion.com/ej2/ej2-navigations/styles/material.css

Step 3: Create a HTML page (index.html) in ~/quickstart/index.html location and add the CDN link references. Now, add the Menu element and initiate the Syncfusion JavaScript Menu control in the index.html by using following code.

                items: [
                    { text: 'Toolbar' },
                    { text: 'Sidebar' }
                ]
            },
            {
                text: 'Tools',
                items: [

            },
            { text: 'Go' },

        // Initialize Menu control.
        var menuObj = new ej.navigations.Menu({ items: menuItems }, '#menu');
    </script>
</body>

</html>

Step 4: Now, run the index.html in web browser, it will render the Syncfusion JavaScript Menu control.

This example demonstrates the basic rendering of Menu with items support. For more information about data source support, refer to the Data Source Binding section.

Group menu items with Separator

The separators are both horizontal and vertical lines used to separate the menu items. You cannot select the separators, but you can enable separators to group the menu items using the separator property. The Open and Save sub menu items are grouped using the separator property in the following sample.

Preview

The separator property should not be given along with the other fields in the MenuItem. You can also enable the separator to group horizontal menu items.
