Name Description

Mobile and tablet devices show the menu in a compact view.
Other device types show the menu as a panel with root items.’


The menu is shown as a panel with root items. Child items are available in drop-down menus.


The menu is in a compact view.


The Menu component supports different display modes (the DisplayMode property):

  • Auto - the menu automatically adapts to the device type.

  • Desktop - the menu is shown as a panel with root items. The menu view also depends on the orientation: horizontal orientation places child items in drop-down menus; vertical orientation shows submenus with child items to the side of the menu container.

  • Mobile - the menu has a compact view and depends on the orientation. In the horizontal orientation, it is a hamburger menu. In the vertical orientation, the menu looks like a desktop menu - a panel with root items, but submenus are shown in the main menu container and have the Back button.

The code below demonstrates how to specify display mode:
