Tokyo - Initial setup | Navigation menu

A unit created with Tokyo can be configured to have a top menu that shows its structure of pages and screens (which would allow us to organize the contents of a section into sub-sections).

In the edition you can configure:

  • Show or hide the Menu
  • Select Menu Style
  • Show the Folded or Unfolded Menu
  • Decide which pages and screens are displayed in the Menu

Show or hide the Menu

By default, when you create a unit with the Tokyo template, a Navigation Menu is autogenerated in the upper-left corner, showing existing pages as well as screens or sections of those pages.

If we wish, we can hide this Menu. This would force the user to move between the different pages and sections using only the forward and backward buttons.

Hiding the Menu can be interesting if, for example, we want to create a unit that has a single page.

To hide the menu we must:

  1. Press the interface of the unit.
  2. Access the "Properties" menu.
  3. Find the "Show Menu" property and select the "No" option.

Select Menu Style

There are two menu styles available:

  • Normal menu.
  • Condensed menu. It is a menu designed to display page titles and long screens.

To select one of the styles click on the top "Interface", go to the "Properties" tab and use the "Style" property.


Show the Folded or Unfolded Menu

By default, the list of screens on a page appears open, but we can define that the list of sections is closed. So, we just view the list of pages and we have to click on
each to view their screens or sections.

To display the folded menu we must:

  1. Select the Interface.
  2. Click on the "Properties" menu.
  3. In the "Folded Submenu" property check the "Yes" option.



Decide which pages and screens are displayed in the Menu

By default, all pages and their screens will be displayed in the Menu, but if desired, they can be easily hidden.

Simply access the properties of the pages or screens and check "No" in the "Show in menu" property.
