Primary Navigation

  • Primary Navigation is a custom component based of out of the box Tab component
  • The parent menu item reside in the Heading of the Tabs
  • The child menu items reside in the Tab as Link List components
  • By default child menu items will be displayed at 8 rows maximum. This will result the four column layout when the menu items are between 25 and 31 items
  • If the child menu items is more than 31 items, it will be displayed on the next column resulting five columns layout.
  • In some instances where CA would like to reduce the 8 rows limit, CA can use Max row 5 option on the Link List component. This will reduce the max row to 5 row. For example: Patient & Visitors items.
