    NEED more than 15 menu item in Context Menu ????

    dam.C Level 1

      Hi,
      I really need to have more than 15 menu item displayed on Context Menu. I desperately need some workaround or ideas to achieve this

       

      My client has invested thousands of dollar in Flex Project, he definitely need more than 15 menu item.If this project failed , client will NEVER think to invest in flex.

       

      Had I been  aware of this limitation before I would have thought some solution by now.This comes as a surprise to me at the last moment ,just fews days before Prod Date.

      I cant also user java Scrip heck  as my Flex application is running inside Dot net Container , I do not access to the luxury of java script

       

      Pls gents help me get rid of this ...PLEASE provide some ideas.

       

       

      Thanks in advance.

       

      Thanks,
      Dharmendra

          Hi,

           

          why you don't want to group items in folders?

          Also it's very difficult to select from list with more then 15 items.

              Hi,

               

              I meen that for example in buitin items there is a menu "Quality" which is a group (with arrow and different menu). If it's possible for builtin items, also it's possible to do manually.

               

              ANother variant - don't use context menu at all. For web applications context menu is not the best variant. You can implement a menu like in www.acrobat.com

              But may be it's not the best decision for fast changing.

                Thanks Natasha,

                 

                I got your point  but as for as I  know grouping like Quality is not possibel in Flax Context menu. I also cant go for window style menu(file,edit) because I need them to be displyed on DataGrid right clk . I am designing a trade datagrid where in trader can see all trades and he can approve/reject etc by just right clk and  selcting proper menu item form Context Menu.

                 

                In case of window style (acrobat.com) menu trader will have to reach to  menu instead of  getting all options on mouse right clk

                 

                I will have to think other alternative wich provides same ease as cotext menu.(God knows what is that )

                 

                Once again thanks for suggestion.
