Menu Button





The "Menu Button" component displays a top-left App Menu Button that should replace the menu bar. It lets your end users access various commands such as page printing, navigation tools or help information of your ebook.



On the screenshot above, the app menu button is named "PDF Demo". This can be changed thanks to the MenuButtonCaption property below.


To enable/disable the menu button, set MenuButtonVisible to false.


{{% notice warning %}} IMPORTANT: some skins DO NOT support displaying the menu button, so even if MenuButtonVisible is set to true, the menu button will not be rendered. This is not a bug but a lack of the skin you selected. {{% /notice %}}


  You can add your own menu items to the menu displayed by the App Menu button thanks to the menu editor (click Edit).
