Nested/2nd level submenus?
« on: August 26, 2013, 02:36:05 PM »
Is it possible to nest submenus, or is this a planned feature?

Some menus I have in mind with a lot of choices, for example for choosing hotkey functions, simply don't seem appropriately placed in the main menu hierarchy, and having submenu-submenus would allow splitting up large item lists into more logical pieces.

Right now it's not possible, and to implement it, it requires quite a bit of hacking in menu.c. It's not quite trivial, but not impossible either.

File manager rebuilds the entire submenu when navigating subfolders.

If so, it'd be great if you'd sooner or later came around to it, imho it's a useful addition and it's surprising that just adding another child menu entry currently refuses to work.

Yeah, the front-end data structure is fine, just the backend doesn't know how to handle it.
