Menu PHP Class Overview

The Kendo UI Menu for PHP is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI Menu widget.

Getting Started

Configuration

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI Menu for PHP.

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for PHP—include the autoloader, JavaScript, and CSS files.

Step 2 Create a Menu and set its items.

Example
    <?php
    $menu = new \Kendo\UI\Menu('menu');
    $item1 = new \Kendo\UI\MenuItem();
    $item1->text("Item 1")
            ->startContent();
    ?>

    First Item Static Content

    <?php
    $item1->endContent();
    $item2 = new \Kendo\UI\MenuItem();
    $item2->text("Item 2")
            ->startContent();
    ?>
        Second Item Static Content
    <?php
    $item2->endContent();

    $menu.addItem($item1, $item2);
    ?>

Step 3 Output the Menu by echoing the result of the render method.

Example
    <?php
    echo $menu->render();
    ?>

Event Handling

You can subscribe to all Menu events.

Specify Function Names

The example below demonstrates how to subscribe for events by specifying a JavaScript function name.

Example
    <?php
    $menu = new \Kendo\UI\Menu('menu');

    // The 'menu_select' JavaScript function will handle the 'select' event of the menu
    $menu->expand('menu_select');

    echo $menu->render();
    ?>
    <script>
    function menu_select() {
        // Handle the select event
    }
    </script>

Provide Inline Code

The example below demonstrates how to subscribe to events by providing inline JavaScript code.

Example
    <?php
    $menu = new \Kendo\UI\Menu('menu');

    // Provide inline JavaScript code that will handle the 'select' event of the menu
    $menu->select('function() { /* Handle the select event */ }');

    echo $menu->render();
    ?>

Attach to select Events of Single Menu Items

The following example demonstrates how to subscribe to the select event of a single Menu item.

Example
    <?php
    $menu = new \Kendo\UI\Menu('menu');

    $item1 = new \Kendo\UI\MenuItem('item 1');
            $item1->select("alert('select');");

    $menu->addItem($item1);

    echo $menu->render();
    ?>

Reference

Client-Side Instances

You are able to reference an existing Menu instance via the jQuery.data(). Once a reference is established, use the Menu API to control its behavior.

Example
    <?php
    $menu = new \Kendo\UI\Menu('menu');
    echo $menu->render();
    ?>
    <script>
    $(function() {
        // The constructor parameter is used as the 'id' HTML attribute of the menu
        var menu = $("#menu").data("kendoMenu");
    });
    </script>
