I am not sure if WebDataMenu was a new control in v11.1, but it seems really buggy.
I added 4 root menu items and made the third root menu item have 2 child menu items. The 4th item does not show up - there seems to be space for it, but hovering or clicking does nothing and the words for the menu item do appear to show up at all.
Also when I try to reduce the font using the webdatamenu property Font-size, the any of the other CssClass properties available at different levels, the font size (and also color) do not change.
Additionally I wanted to change the height of the menu "bar" and this did shrink to the appropriate size, but the text stayed in the same position it was in before and I could find no way to get it to shift so that it was no longer partially "cut off". Also there is now a "gap" between the 3rd root menu item and its children.
Any help with this would be much appreciated.
Thank you for posting your question to Infragistics forums.
For the question regarding the fourth item, I am not able to reproduce this issue I can see the fourth item. I have attached the markup for demonstrating the same.
You can change the font size and color using the itemsettingCSSClass property as shown below
<ig:WebDataMenu ID="WebDataMenu1" runat="server" Height="18px"
To change the font size of the Root menu you need to override the igdm_MenuItemHorizontalRootLink class in the webdatamenu.css file like below.
For the question regarding the space between the menu and submenu items, I am investigating this issue and will update you by the end of Friday.
Please let me know if you have any further questions regarding this matter
This is just an update to let you know that I am currently discussing with our engineering team regarding the space between menu and submenu items. I will update you as soon as I hear back from them or by the end of the day Tuesday.
Please let me know if you have any further questions regarding this matter.
I have heard back from the Engineering team that the WebDataMenu minimum height is 26 pixels. If you set the menu height to 18px directly in its settings its height will be still 26 pixels, but only 18px will be visible. If it’s set in the GroupSettings the menu will keep its minimum height (26px). This is because WDM items have default padding on which base is calculated their height. I have attached the Markup for demonstrating the same.
The work around is to override the root menu padding like this:
padding: 2px 4px;
The result is WDM with height exactly 18px.
Thank you for looking into this. I will have to look at what you have regarding the missing fourth item in the menu. Did you happen to look at the Sandbox example I attached in the OP? It had all the issues I mentioned. I had the problem in that sample which is as basic as it gets.
As to the other issues. You mention editting the weddatamenu.css directly. Where might I find that and how might I include that in my project so that the each other developers will not have to make this change, too? Also will I have to overwrite this css each time we get a new version of Infragistics?
Ok, skip the last reply. Here is what I am seeing as the issue. It appears that inline ASP.NET script causes the behavior I am seeing. See attached set of files. The default page shows the problem (the site1/webform1 were to test Master pages which works fine).
This seems to be what is causing the behavior. Is there something that can be done to fix this?
