Accordion Style?

Poster: Tyler Silcox

Is it possible to use the milonic menu as an accordion style menu? It'll need to run inline and push other items down the page, but I'd like to stick with milonic since we are already using a milonic drop-down menu elsewhere on the page.

I don't think that's one of the current features, and it would probably be a major chore to get it in. Andy is very concerned with killing off the current crop of bugs and getting this puppy to final, and that's where his concentration is right now. Perhaps after that.

If you spec it out a bit, I'll take a look.

Can't see it being too difficult but as John says, it might be a while before we can do anything.


Accordion Style Menu...

There's actually not that much to it:

1) You'd need to be able to set a menu inline vertically.

2) You would have your root menu always visible, and when you click on an item, the submenu for that item would disply right underneath that item, pushing the rest of the root items, along with whatever else is on the page, down the page.

That's the gist of it. Of course, there's always much more going on underneath everything. But I don't think it would be too hard to implement in you current system. You'd probably want to add a new Menu parameter like AccordionStyle=True, or ExpandInline, etc.

You'd also have to account for more than one layer deep, which I'd probably want to push out horizontally, but I could see other people who would want to nest the accordion menus (which they could do if you added one of the parameters above).

Here are some examples:

Let me know if you'd like me to do anything else, test or whatever...TIA for even considering this->
