ASPxClientMenuBase.GetItemCount Method

Returns the number of menu items at the root menu level.

Declaration

GetItemCount(): number

Returns

Type Description
number

An integer value specifying the number of the root menu items.

Remarks

A menu control's client-side functionality allows the menu items of the root menu level to be accessed programmatically. The GetItemCount method is used to determine the number of the root menu items maintained by the menu's ASPxMenuBase.Items collection. This method can be used together with the ASPxClientMenuBase.GetItem method when iterating through the menu's root item list to determine its upper bound.

Examples

This sample demonstrates how to disable sending a postback and generating the server ItemClick event for the menu items that contain sub-items. In this sample, the desired behavior is implemented by setting the e.processOnServer parameter to false within the handler of the menu client ItemClick event.
