Display customized "context menus" anywhere in your web application
Using the special ShowContextMenu() method, Active WebMenu lets you "pop up" a menu in the exact spot of your user's mouse cursor.

Script-based runtime configuration of the entire user interface
Through it's unique, script-based API, Active WebMenu provides web application developers with unparalleled runtime configuration options. Every part of the Active WebMenu user interface can be modified "on the fly" without having to re-load or re-initialize your web application.

Active WebMenu is distributed to your users via a very small (less than 110K) digitally signed CAB file. The automated download and installation process only occurs the first time one of your users launches your web application.

Automatic support for "Chevron Menus" on every toolbar
Whenever there is not enough room to display all of the buttons of a toolbar, a "Chevron Button" appears automatically at the far right edge of the toolbar. When the "Chevron Button" is clicked, a "Chevron Menu" drops down to display any toolbar buttons not visible due to space limitations.

Movable, sizeable, and hideable toolbars
