Custom Control - ASP.NET Menu Tree Checkbox List

ASP.NET Menu Tree Custom Control For XMod Pro

This Custom Control for XMod Pro Forms gives you the ability to have an ASP.NET Menu Tree / Structure for a Form Checkbox List!
Benefits & Features: We developed this Custom Control for project situations where we needed to present multiple options for a user to choose from in a multi-select scenario. Many average web users have trouble with the "Ctrl + Click" to select multiple items, and while the Dual List functionality helps with this problem, it does not gracefully display levels/hierarchy well. This Menu Tree allows you to display parent/child relationships and is instantly recognized and easy to use.
  • Control allows you to specify data sets through the XMod Pro standard ControlDataSource
  • Can be combined with jQuery code for further enhancements like disabling parent selections, enforcing a count-limit on selections, etc.
  • Users can select individual items, or select a parent item to auto-select all child items
  • When passing in populated data, the menu tree will automatically open/display any notes that are checked
  • Fully customizable for style/layout from within CSS, jQuery and within XMod Pro code
  • To use this custom control within your XMod Pro forms, simply add the REGISTER tag to your form for the moorecreative.xmodcontrols, then follow instructions for customization and options within the control.
  • The Module Kit installer will setup an XMod Pro form example using countries/states as a starter example for you to work from.
