ASPxClientMenuBase.SetSelectedItem(item) Method

Selects the specified menu item within a menu control on the client side.


    item: ASPxClientMenuItem
): void


Name Type Description
item ASPxClientMenuItem

An ASPxClientMenuItem object specifying the menu item to select.


If the ASPxMenuBase.AllowSelectItem property is set to true, end users are allowed to select menu items via mouse clicks. A menu control (either the ASPxMenu or ASPxPopupMenu) also provides the ability to select menu items on the client side via code. You can use the SetSelectedItem method for this purpose.

Note that only one item can be selected within a menu control at the same time, and this item is displayed selected only if the menu’s ASPxMenuBase.ItemLinkMode property is set to the ItemLinkMode.ContentBounds value.

To make none of the items selected within a menu control, pass null as the method’s parameter.
