Multi-level-push-menu

by ECM-DMS (BPM)

This jQuery plugin is inspired by Codrops MultiLevelPushMenu but unlike it not relaying on CSS 3D Transforms and therefore functional in older browsers too (i.e. IE 8).

Documentation, examples and code samples http://multi-level-push-menu.make.rs

Features

  • Multi-level menu support
  • Endless nesting of navigation elements
  • Expand/Collapse navigation with a left/right swipe gesture
  • Push/Slide DOM elements of choice
  • Left-to-right and Right-to-left sliding directions
  • Flexible, simple markup
  • JS Array input, if markup is not present
  • A number of exposed Options, Methods and Events
  • Cross-browser compatibility (IE8+, Chrome, Midori, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Android Browser, iOS Safari)

Using swipe on desktops

If you will use swiping menus on desktops, mousedown bubble will be canceled and therefore any DOM object placed within menu item won't get focus when clicked. To overcome this you can use originally triggered event returned as onItemClick's first argument. Below is an example showing how to set focus on input element, http://jsfiddle.net/5rjg9/1/

$(document).ready(function () {
    $('#menu').multilevelpushmenu({
        onItemClick: function () {
            var e = arguments[0];
            if ($(e.target).prop('tagName').toLowerCase() == 'input') {
                $(e.target).focus();
                $(e.target).val('focused');
                $(e.target).unbind('blur');
                $(e.target).blur(function(){
                    $(e.target).val('blured');
                });
            }
        }
    });
});

or,

http://jsfiddle.net/c5EA4/6/

$(document).ready(function () {
    $('#menu').multilevelpushmenu({
        onMenuSwipe: function () {
            var e = arguments[0];
            if ($(e.target).prop('tagName').toLowerCase() == 'input') return false;
        }
    });
});

Alternatively, you can set swipe option to 'touchscreen' and allow swiping menus only on touch-screen enabled devices.

Full list of events/callbacks is provided below.

Events/Callbacks

onCollapseMenuStart               // Menu collapse started
onCollapseMenuEnd                 // Menu collapse ended
onExpandMenuStart                 // Menu expand started
onExpandMenuEnd                   // Menu expand ended
onGroupItemClick                  // Click/touchstart menu item containing sub-items
onItemClick                       // Click/touchstart menu item which doesn't contain sub-items
onTitleItemClick                  // Title icon click/touchstart
onBackItemClick                   // Back item click/touchstart
onMenuReady                       // Menu created and ready for use
onMenuSwipe                       // Menu swipe initiated

Provided argument for onMenuReady, onCollapseMenuStart, onCollapseMenuEnd, onExpandMenuStart and onExpandMenuEnd callbacks is current options object.

For onMenuSwipe, onTitleItemClick and onBackItemClick callbacks provided arguments are respecively event object, menu level holder object and plug-in options object.

For onGroupItemClick and onItemClick callbacks provided arguments are respecively event object, menu level object, clicked item object and plug-in options object.

An event callback example

Each event triggers a callback; An example using onItemClick event callback functionality.

$( '#menu' ).multilevelpushmenu({
    onItemClick: function() {
        // First argument is original event object
        var event = arguments[0],
            // Second argument is menu level object containing clicked item (<div> element)
            $menuLevelHolder = arguments[1],
            // Third argument is clicked item (<li> element)
            $item = arguments[2],
            // Fourth argument is instance settings/options object
            options = arguments[3];

        // You can do some cool stuff here before
        // redirecting to href location
        // like logging the event or even
        // adding some parameters to href, etc...

        // Anchor href
        var itemHref = $item.find( 'a:first' ).attr( 'href' );
        // Redirecting the page
        location.href = itemHref;
    }
});
