Menu/Menu Item cannot be dropped!
Where can I drop the menu/menu item? I tried all the containers and BoxComponent. The menu/menu item is not being accepted anywhere.
What am I doing wrong?
Also, if I need to create a simple menubar with a sequence of images and possibly a short title under each of the images, each image being a link to some other URL, what is the best approach?
Please help. Thanks in advance.
Menus can be associated with Buttons and MenuItems can be associated with Menus.
The easiest way to build a simple "MenuBar"
- Drag out a toolbar
- Place buttons on the toolbar
- Add Menu Items to the button by opening the flyout and clicking "Add"
excellent! that was a very quick response..thank you..
is there a way to make a tabbed panel (for eg.) fill up the parent container in width and height? saw some posts..does it have to do with anchor layout and setting anchor: '100% 100%'? Is there a way to easily add additional config variables to on object from ext designer?
Also, doesn't look like 'collapsed' is supported in Designer yet? Is there a roadmap for Designer? I am looking to convince my higher ups to invest in ext + designer..
Btw, excellent job with your library and designer..
Thanks in advance...
There is a special layout which means take up 100% width and 100% height of the parents container. This is called a 'fit' layout.
By setting the layout of the parent container to fit, you're child item such as a tabpanel will stretch to fit 100% width and 100%height.
You are correct, collapsed is currently not in the designer, we will put this in the next build.
If you are having issues creating a particular layout and are able to post your .xds file to share we can assist you in creating the layout you want.
Try using layout fit. (see attached ss)
There are numerous enhancements we are working on, and will soon release a roadmap to provide some guidance on our direction.

Thank you very much. I am going to try it out.
Very impressed with the response time..
Yes, if a roadmap becomes available, I'll be better equipped when I discuss this with my higher ups. Sorry to rush you, but when can I expect to see a rough roadmap on Designer?
