3. Default CSS classes:

  • Selected: Makes the item (and all parent items) appear "selected".
  • AlignRight: Aligns a main item to the right.
  • IconHidden: Uses the icon as a fallback for when the menu is too small for all items to fit.
  • SubmenuAlignRight: Aligns the submenu to the right. Note: submenus are aligned automatically to fit within the viewport.
  • SubmenuFullwidth: Makes the submenu fill up the full width of the menu.
  • SubmenuMega: Turns the submenu into a mega menu.
  • SubmenuTabs: Turns the submenu into a tabs menu.
  • SubmenuAlignRight: Aligns the sub-submenu to the right. Note: sub-submenus are aligned automatically to fit within the viewport.
  • SubmenuInline: Makes the sub-submenu appear inline.

4. Initialize the mega menu with options. All possible options.

  • menu.align: Aligns the main items to the left, right, center or justify.
  • menu.border: Adds a border (bottom) to the bottom of the menu.
  • menu.logo: Styles a logo in the menu (if present).
  • item.bg: Adds a background to main items onHover.
  • item.border: Adds a border (bottom) to main items onHover.
  • item.subindicator: Adds a subindicator to main items.
  • submenu: Required for submenus.
  • submenu.arrow: Adds an arrow that points to the main item.
  • submenu.border: Adds a border (top) to submenus.
  • submenu.shadow: Adds a shadow to submenus.
  • subitem.bg: Adds a background to subitems onHover.
  • subitem.border: Adds a border between subitems.
