I am currently trying to create a menu that allows the user to select a certain item.
Right now I am using the Horizontal Menu component to achieve this which works well, but there are 9 submenus within this menu. I would like to find a way to make it easier for a user to switch between items on the bottom levels of this menu without having to click through all of the submenus.
My idea was to take the path from the onItemClicked event from the Horizontal Menu and use each step of the path to open the menu to that point. For example, say a user has selected:
MenuItem 1 > MenuItem 2 > ....... > MenuItem 7 > MenuItem 8 > MenuItem9
If they wanted to select another item that was within the submenus of 'MenuItem 7', they could click that part of the path to open the Horizontal Menu from that point, rather than start at the beginning.
I have been able to create the path using that event, but I do not see a way that I can force the Horizontal Menu to open into a specific submenu from a Perspective script. Maybe I am missing something or it's not possible with this component.
Hopefully, this is clear enough (please ask if anything needs clarifying). Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
This is an example of the menu structure I have right now, to help clarify. More items will be added to each level as we develop, but for now this is what we have. To have the page work correctly a Machine must be selected from the very last submenu.
Because users will likely be looking at several machines from one manufacturing site. I would like the user to be able to select a part of the path at the very top of the screenshot to open directly to that submenu.
In this case clicking the highlighted 'Item 1' in the path would bring you immediately to the Plant Code submenu rather than the user navigating the whole menu each time they need to select one machine.
