The object of MVCxMenu type represents the configured instance of DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Menu extension. The MVCxMenu object is intended to be used mainly as a sender parameter when processing events on the server side.

The code sample below illustrates how to use the MVCxMenu object within the delegate method that processes the SettingsBase.PreRender server event.

View code:


@Html.DevExpress().Menu(settings =>
{
    settings.Name = "Menu";
    settings.PreRender = (sender, e) =>
        {
            MVCxMenu m = (MVCxMenu)sender;
            // Add a new unbound item. All the other items are taken from the bound "~/App_Data/WorldCup2010.sitemap" file
            m.Items.Add("Unbound Item");
        };
}).BindToSiteMap("~/App_Data/WorldCup2010.sitemap").GetHtml()
Note

To properly follow the ASP.NET MVC pattern, it is recommended to respond to end-user actions on the client-side (see Client-Side API) or to use Ajax callbacks to the server and handle these callbacks using custom action methods (see Using Callbacks).
