The NavBar widget

Available since version: 2012
Author: Christian Mayer


With the widget navbar, you can add a navigation menu to the entire visu. The menu can be displayed on a page (top, bottom, left, right).


For a general understanding of how the configuration files are structured and what elements and attributes are it is recommended to read this section first: Pages and structure of CometVisu.

The behaviour and appearance of the NavBar widget can be influenced by using certain attributes and elements. The following tables show the allowed attributes and elements and their possible values. The screenshots show, how both can be edited in the editor.

Attributes underlined by ..... are mandatory, all the others are optional and be omitted.
