How Dynamic Menus Work: Overview

  1. A primary menu is displayed on the screen, while submenus are hidden.
  2. A user points to a primary menu item. This triggers a change in the corresponding submenu, making it visible.
  3. The user points away from the visible submenu, which again triggers a change, this time returning the submenu to its original invisible state.
