JSON Editing

1. To help build your menu configuration use an online JSON editor like:
https://jsoneditoronline.org/
Copy and paste the above JSON and modify.

2. After you have made changes to the JSON, set the config property value of the menu:

IMPORTANT. You should remove all carriage returns and line breaks from the generated configuration before pasting. You can do this by using a text editor like Notepad++. In Notepad++ do CTRL+H (make sure extended Search mode is selected) to find and replace \r and \n with blank. This will remove all carriage returns and line breaks.

3. For the hyperlinks, valid ords must be used.
e.g. station:|slot:/Drivers/NiagaraNetwork/AHU1

4. Please contact us if you're having trouble setting up the menu configuration.

File Config

You can point the menu to a file that exists on the station. Valid values are ords e.g.:
file:^dropdownMenu/config.txt
If you do not specify a file reference the config property will be used instead.

Override Default Theme Colors

backgroundColor, borderColor, menuDropdownFontColor, menuDropdownHoverFontColor, menuHoverColor, menuClickedColor, linkHoverColor, menuFontFamily, menuFontWeight, menuFontSize, linkFontFamily, linkFontWeight, linkFontSize

You can override the default colors and values for these properties. Using the JSON above, specify a color in hex format e.g. #FFFFFF. If this field is left blank, the theme colors will be used.

Position

You can override the menu position by setting position propert to absolute and the positionLeft and positionTop properties to XXpx, e.g. 20px.

* Workbench Viewing Workaround

Niagara Px View doesn't allow the menu items to appear over other items, however, there is a workaround:
If you're running 4.3 or above, there should be a "toggle preview" button at the end of the toolbar when looking at a Px graphic. This will show you your Px page rendered in a browser.

Using in your HTML Page


You can now use the widget in your custom html page as long as the html file is in a appropriate station directory.
E.g. C:/../stationName/shared/webfiles/demo1.html

1. Create an html page and place in your station files directory.
2. Create a div element and give it an id so you can inject the widget into this area. E.g.: widget1.
3. Add the following scripts before the closing head tag or the closing body tag. E.g.:


<script type="text/javascript">

    var require = {
        paths: {
            "nmodule": "/module",
            "baja": "/module/bajaScript/rc/plugin/baja",
            "bajaScript": "/module/bajaScript/rc",
            "bajaux": "/module/bajaux/rc",
            "lex": "/module/js/rc/lex/lexplugin",
            "css": "/module/js/com/tridium/js/ext/require/css",

            "jquery": "/module/js/rc/jquery/jquery-2.1.1",
            "Promise": "/module/js/rc/bluebird/bluebird",

            // these are runtime dependencies
            "hbs": "/module/js/rc/require-handlebars-plugin/hbs",
            "i18nprecompile": "/module/js/rc/require-handlebars-plugin/hbs/i18nprecompile",
            "json2": "/module/js/rc/require-handlebars-plugin/hbs/json2",
            "underscore": "/module/js/rc/underscore/underscore",
        },

        hbs: {
            disableI18n: true
        }
    }
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/module/js/com/tridium/js/ext/require/require.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript"
        src="/module/js/com/tridium/js/ext/require/require.min.js"></script>
<script>
    require(['/module/bootstrapDropdownMenu/rc/bootstrapDropdownMenu.run.js'], function (app) {

        app.initialiseDropdownMenu({
            config: '<JSON CONIFG HERE>',
            fileConfig: 'file:^dropdownMenu/config.txt',
        });
    });
</script>
</head>  
<!--Rest of your html below...-->
                                


4. Change the configuration values as required.
IMPORTANT: When using in html the links should be changed to the following format:
/ord/station:|slot:/Drivers/NiagaraNetwork/AHU1_on_off

Licensing


Widgets and drivers must be licensed with us. Licenses are bound to the stations host Id. You will be provided access to the Software and Licensing Portal where you can manage your own licenses. Here you can add, update, or delete licenses as needed.

There are few ways to get a license file:

1. Add our licensing module to your station services. This module automatically retrieves the license from our servers and saves it to your stations shared folder directory.

2. Alternatively, Login to the Software and Licensing Portal (link provided in Order Confirmation) and add your host id's as needed. Copy the license file to the stations shared directory.

Finally, make sure the station user has access to WLicenseService in the user management and category service section.
