Developing a menu couldn't be easier

I found this control while looking for an easy to develop menu system for a point of sale application.
The Essential Objects Slide Menu fit the bill perfectly.
I created a menu from a template, changed some of the css properties, and had a menu that was an exact match for may application.
Even programmatic access to the control in a Master Page from within a child page was a breeze.
Great product, great customer support

My company's objective was to create a dynamic menu with a specific colour scheme. We chose the Essential Objects menu control, and basically this was the best decision we took. It's the only product I know, which has a menu builder. This in itself is a great tool to build the menu with whatever colour scheme you want/need, without having to implement it and refresh the page 200 times because you got one colour wrong. To top it off, the menu works great in a cross frame system (which is also one of the main reasons why my company chose this product in the first place). The menu is highly customizable in every way imaginable and is very easy to develop with.
The company has great customer support. Here is an example: We develop our application using MS AJAX, (which incidentally changes every 2 months and screws everyone's code over). After a release the menu did not work with AJAX. My email to the customer support was answered within a matter of an hour or so, and I soon received a link to a patched version
Very good product !!!

My objective was to recreate an existant menu already build with image (so each modification are complicated ) to a new menu based on text (easier to manage).
Using a product already builded for me was a problem cause i believed that I would not able to obtain the same result as i want. But with this control it's just wonderful, no knowledge required to build a menu, we can create a menu in just few click, easy to manage and more than every objective and "effect" that i expected have been reached !!
Technical support is perfect !!! Nothing to say about that, only that eveytime you ask a question i get an answer in the next hour and they help you with your problem!!!

I had to produce a flashy menu in a hurry. Being new to the web world, I had no idea what to do. I found ASPXLab and downloaded it. Due to my ineptitude, the first try at deploying the menu did not succeed so I contacted ASPXLab customer support. Wow! Are they wonderful!! They answered all my questions, helped me solve each problem and, together, we created a great menu. Now that I know the web programming code I should have already known, deploying their menu is a snap and I am creating away. I am a VERY happy camper. Kudos to everyone at ASPXLab!!!!!!!!!!
Great Product and Service

I'm using the regular menu and the SlideMenu and am very happy with both. The customization options are extensive, allowing you to tailor the controls to your exact needs.
On the rare occasion when I have had a question, they get back right away and with good information, not just the "check the documentation for more info" you get from so many vendors. I highly recommend AspxLab controls.
Best Company Ever!!!

I've been using these controls in a highly utilized commercial site for a while now and I have got to say this company rocks. Not only do the controls function flawlessly, but the support is extreme! I've asked for certain features and within days there is another version for me. Compared to some bigger control houses (infrag...), whose controls I've had to rip out due to pathetic support, these guys are customer service Gods. Before you waste any time or money on any other control, look at what this company has to offer, you won't be disappointed.

Wow! Excellent control, excellent vendor. The slide menu works perfectly in all browsers that I have tested and the control works great with either static content or dynamic database-driven content. The look and feel is slick and clean without any issues that I have run into.
The slide menu is similar in concept to the Outlook Navigation pane and Visual Studio's Toolbox which has major sections with subsections that appear when the section is selected. The unused major sections slide down to the bottom or up to the top so that only the active section is displayed.
Multiple layers can be configured to give as much flexibility as you would want.
Working with the vendor has been a pleasure. I've asked a few questions and have always received a quick, friendly and very knowledgeable response.
The component will work in a partial trust environment in ASP.NET v2.0 although reflection is required so it will need some adjustment from medium trust.
The GUI tool works great too allowing you to con
