Add menus to your Web site. RadMenu for ASP.NET AJAX is an advanced navigation control for ASP.NET allowing you to build lightweight, search-engine friendly menu systems. Thanks to its super-efficient rendering technology. Key features: semantic rendering for minimal HTML, databinding, rich client-side API, search engine friendly, extensive VS.NET design-time support, context menus, animations and more.
Semantic Rendering for Minimal HTML - RadMenu for ASP.NET AJAX implements a highly efficient semantic rendering, which uses list items and CSS instead of tables. As a result the HTML output is significantly reduced, which dramatically improves performance.
Databinding - RadMenu for ASP.NET AJAX supports binding to all ASP.NET 2.0 declarative datasources (AccessDataSource, ObjectDataSource, SqlDataSource, SiteMapDataSource, XmlDataSource) as well as LinqDataSource. The control can also be bound to web services on the client and load data on demand which results in previously unattainable performance boosts.
Rich Client-side API - RadMenu has a rich client-side API and comprehensive set of events guaranteeing full control over various functions performed on the client. You can easily add/delete/update items at the client side and all the changes will be persisted on the server as well. The rich client-side API provides unbeatable performance and desktop-like experience.
XHTML and Accessibility standards compliancy - RadMenu for ASP.NET AJAX is compliant with the XHTML 1.1 requirement. The control satisfies the requirements of "Section 508" for software accessibility, as well as those of "Level AAA" (in accordance with the W3C Web Accessibility Guidelines 1.0). RadMenu also has full support for keyboard navigation with Shortcuts, Access Keys and Arrow-key navigation.
Search Engine Friendly - RadMenu completely follows the principles of Search Engine Optimization. The control's innovative rendering generates semantic lists and standard <a> tags, which are properly recognized and highly valued by search engines. As a result, all content accessible through this control will be automatically indexed and ranked with no extra effort required from the developer.
Extensive VS.NET Design-time Support - RadMenu provides rich design-time support functionality making customizations and configurations very easy. Some of the key capabilities are:
Context Menu - RadContextMenu provides clean and flexible API for all scenarios where you will need a popup menu for context help within your application, or for dynamic links in the body text of your pages.
Animations - RadMenu for ASP.NET AJAX supports a variety of expand animation styles for a great user experience. You can select among predefined animations and further customize them with any settings relevant for your scenario.
Appearance - RadMenu is shipped with a rich set of skins that allow you to easily build slick interfaces with the look-and-feel of Windows Vista, Office 2007, Outlook, etc. The skins can be easily switched using a single property.
Custom Attributes - RadMenu provides full support for custom attributes both on the server and on the client. It is easy to customize the item and include any attribute relevant for your scenario: additional text, value or image.
Template Support - You can embed any content inside a RadMenu for ASP.NET AJAX template, including HTML markup and ASP.NET server controls, as well as other third-party controls (and any control from the Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite as well).
Right-to-Left Support - RadMenu provides full support for Right-to-Left languages.
Screen Boundaries Detection - RadMenu for ASP.NET AJAX automatically detects browser boundaries and groups will be opened in the opposite direction, if the window edges are to be crossed.
