Subject [jira] Commented: (CLK-512) Dropdown Menu Control
Date Fri, 05 Mar 2010 10:28:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLK-512?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12841802#action_12841802

Bob Schellink commented on CLK-512:
-----------------------------------

Its slippery because once you theme one control there will be requests to theme others as
well. Themeing individual component is at the wrong level of abstraction anyway. For example:

Table.setStyle(BLUE);
Butotn.setStyle(YELLOW);
Menu.setStyle(BROWN);

The above is nonsensical and confusing, especially with a technology such as CSS which can
style the entire application from a single file.

CSS3 is also starting to provide a very cheap alternative to image based styling. See the
buttons on the Click home for an example (yes, I realize IE doesn't understand it :))

> Please create a DropdownMenu control.
> This would be basically what the actual menu in click-examples does (+more looks).
> Here is a list of various decorations the DropdownMenu could take:

> It would be very helpful if the DropdownMenu would simply allow to choose another decoration,
> e.g. exactly like it's possible with the Table control:
> http://www.avoka.com/click-examples/table/table-styles.htm
> (there are many good styles at that blog page)
> This would save users allot of work - the same way the Table control does.
> I think the Menu control should be than more generic (not the dropdown version that it
is now), and it should be simpler
> to extend. For this it would also require additional properties, mentioned below:

> thanks,
