There is already Design Studio SDK: (dynamic) Accordion Component, there is a Design Studio SDK: Tree Component. And now in SAPUI5 version 2.34 there is a new component for navigation purposes.. SAPUI5 Explored Side Navigation.
Since today you can use this control in Design Studio.
The Use Case
you want to create a side navigation which is collapsable (only icons are visible) and expandable (then the texts are visible).
The component has 2 sections – one on the top and second (fixed) on bottom side.
It looks like this (expanded and collapsed):
Functions are quite simple.
1. You can collapse and expand (property and script)
2. you can define items – in 2 levels (the original component has undefined number of levels, but in design studio we have only 2)
3. you can also define fixed items (those bound from bottom)
when collapsed, you see only icons and the menu is a popup.
When expanded, it looks like a accordion or at least very similar.
to avoid collisions in keys, there are 2 events with example script.
APPLICATION.log(“Sel: ” + SIDENAVIGATION_1.getItemSelectedKey());
APPLICATION.log(“Sel: ” + SIDENAVIGATION_1.getFixedItemSelectedKey());
with this you can react on the selection.
Events & Spec
The button has selection event, press event and in the specification you can also use multi select. If you use single select, you can use toggle mechanism (pressed button is marked) or just a button w/o marking selection.
