Hierarchical Menu

You can use the Menu control to create hierarchical menus. Wijmo's hierarchical menus support all the options supported by flat menus, including openOnHover, isAnimated, and right-to-left layouts. You can set these options by using the openOnHover, isAnimated, and rightToLeft properties.

In the example below, we have created a menu bar which contains two Menu controls. Each one is bound to a hierarchical list of commands which is an array of objects where items may contain child items. For example, the File menu has a New option with three sub-items: Project, Site, and File.:
