Menu Family: Grouped Menu Items Using JavaScript

This example demonstrates how to group MenuItem instances.

Note: By default clicking outside of a menu will hide it. Additionally, menu items without a submenu or a URL to navigate will hide their parent menu when clicked. Click the "Show Menu" button below to make the menu visible if it is hidden.

Creating a Menu from JavaScript with items organized into groups

To create a Menu with no pre-existing markup on the page, call the Menu constructor (YAHOO.widget.Menu) passing the id of the Menu element to be created as the first argument.

Add items to a Menu instance via the addItem, insertItem, or addItems methods.

Items can be organized into groups by creating a multi-dimensional array of YAHOO.widget.MenuItem configuration properties and passing it to the addItems method.

Finally, it is necessary to call the render method passing the id of, or reference to the element the Menu should be appended to.
