Submenu

Creates, you guessed it, a submenu in your app.
If you feel that one of your menus contains too many elements then adding a submenu is a great way of grouping some of these elements.

Adding the Submenu building block

  1. 1.
    Click on + Block.
  2. 2.
    Select the Submenu block and click Add this block.
  3. 3.
    Fill in the name of the block.
  4. 4.
    Click on the icon if you want to change the image used in the menu.
  5. 5.
    When you’re done, click Add this Block.

Configuring the Submenu block

Placing other building blocks under your Submenu building block is quite easy. Click and drag the desired block from the right side of the block onto the Submenu block. Blocks that fall under (or within) the submenu are indented slightly to the right.
The Submenu building block editor is composed of two editing screens: Settings and Design.
The settings in the Settings editing screen determine how your block will function and the settings in the Design screen determine its aesthetics.

Settings

There are several aspects of your Submenu block that can be changed in this screen:
  • The name of the block
  • The icon (or image) that will be used in the app menu
  • The top image used in the Submenu screen
  • The Navigation style of your Submenu block
Click on Navigation style to change the view of your submenu.
Should the need arise to keep the users of your published app from using this portion of the app, then you can always make use of the ON/OFF sliding selector.
Slide the selector to OFF to keep users from seeing the Submenu block. Now you can continue developing your app without worrying about users coming upon areas that you haven't finished developing as of yet. Once you are satisfied with your progress, slide the selector back to ON to publish this portion of your app.

Design

The Design screen allows your to make highly detailed changes to your building block. Design gives the developer a remarkable amount of freedom to adjust everything exactly as he or she would like it.
