Name Description

The BreadCrumbEdit‘s path is represented as plain editable text. End users can use a keyboard to modify this path and navigate within the BreadCrumbEdit.


The BreadCrumbEdit‘s path is represented as a sequence of click-able visual elements. Each element represents a BreadCrumbNode and has a drop-down button that displays a drop-down list with all child nodes owned by this node.


The BreadCrumbEdit can operate in Edit and Select modes. In Select mode nodes are presented as click-able items with the drop-down button, clicking which displays a drop-down list with all child nodes for this node. Edit mode, automatically applied when an end-user clicks empty space within a BreadCrumbEdit, allows end-users to manually modify the editor’s path, presented as plain editable string.
