Getting Started with MenuSuites in Dynamics NAV
MenuSuites contain menus that enable users to navigate and perform actions in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client. MenuSuites display menus on the Departments page in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client. Dynamics NAV provides a basic MenuSuite that can be modified. You can also create your own MenusSuites. You create MenuSuites in Object Designer and modify them in Navigation Pane Designer. For information about Navigation Pane Designer, see Navigation Pane Designer.
MenuSuites are not supported by Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client. They are used only to build the Department page in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client.
A MenuSuite has the following characteristics:
Consists of a set of menus.
Contains a menu node that can be either a menu group or a menu item.
Has a GUID (Globally Unique Identifier).
Contains a collection of menu nodes in a menu group.
A menu item is the lowest level in the tree. When you select a menu item, its associated object such as a report, a batch job, or a codeunit, is run.
