Subject [jira] Commented: (CLK-512) Dropdown Menu Control
Date Thu, 04 Mar 2010 13:53:27 GMT

Adrian A. commented on CLK-512:
-------------------------------

Personally I like allot that for the Table control has this possibility and I can choose a
very good style with only 1 line of code.
It fits very well the 80/20 concept. If I need something more, than I can make my own style,
but most of the cases I won't.

I think the same should be for Click Menu too.
We must distinct here between: Web Site like application (publicly exposed) and pure webapp
(e.g. the many admin UIs for the various sites/apps). The users would greatly benefit like
in the case of the Table of having a quick and very good solution for 80% of the cases.

Also having more than a style for the menu is a great starting point if users want to further
customize: e.g. in the case of the Table, users mostly just modified a little one of the existing
styles - they haven't implemented it from zero.

Styling all controls is not necessary because most of them have very very good defaults already
:).

> 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:
