        .Items(i =>
            i.Add().Text("Inbox").Data(new { view = "inbox" }).Icon("envelop").Selected(true).HtmlAttributes(new { id = "Inbox" });
            i.Add().Text("Calendar").Data(new { view = "calendar" }).Icon("calendar-date").HtmlAttributes(new { id = "Calendar" });
            i.Add().Text("Profile").Data(new { view = "profile" }).Icon("user").HtmlAttributes(new { id = "Profile" });
