View Full Version : MenuBar/ToolBar Enhancement

27 Apr 2008, 5:31 PM
Currently the user has to click the top menu in order to show the menu items.

Wouldn't it be nice to mimic the normal behavior of menu bars as exist in desktop apps which drops down when you hover mouse over top menu?

Any thoughts?

I'm using Windows XP and Firefox, and the top menu bar has to be clicked before it will show any items. The expandable sub-menuitems (>) auto show when you hover over them.

This behaviour is similar in Ext-GWT beta 1 explorer demo, except that once the menu is clicked in Windows, you can view any menu, in Ext-GWT, you have to re-click the neighboring menus. The sub-menuitem hover works the same as expected.

Is that auto-show, neighboring item issue what you are talking about?

You're right. In Windows, once the top level menu is clicked, you can view any neighboring menus when you hover over them.

In Ext-GWT, user has to re-click the neighboring top level menus in order to get to respective sub menus.
