Multi-Level Push Menu for Infinite Nested Submenus


Multi-Level Push Menu for Infinite Nested Submenus

Codrops has shared a Multi-level Push Menuexperiment with us. They tried to explore the possibility of creating a nested multi-level menu, something that could be quite useful for menus with lots of content like navigations of online stores.

The result is a “push” menu that can (theoretically) contain infinite nested sub-menus. When opening a sub-level, the whole navigation pushes the content more, allowing a slice of the parent menu to be visible. Optionally, this slice can be visible or not, in which case the sub-menu will simply cover its parent.

The main idea is to increment the value for the translate so that we guarantee that the sub-levels are not shown once we push everything a bit more for showing the slices of the parents. Please note that this is using 3D Transforms which only work in modern browsers. You will find a fallback example for non-supporting browsers in the end of the component.css file.

Testing on Variety Device Screens & Resolutions


Testing on Variety Device Screens & Resolutions

Screenfly allows you to view your website on a variety of device screens and resolutions. Enter a URL and click on GO to get started. Screenfly can use a proxy server to mimic devices while you view your website. The proxy server mimics the user agent string of the devices you select, but not the behavior of those devices. On devices with densely pixelated screens, websites are often rendered using reference pixels instead of the traditional hardware pixel. Keep in mind that resolutions in Screenfly refer to the rendered resolution, and not necessarily the native resolution of the device you’re testing.
