        my $nm = CatalystX::NavigationMenu->new();

        my $menu = $nm->get_navigation($c, {level => 0});

DESCRIPTION

CatalystX::NavigationMenu provides a menu object to be used when creating and managing menus in Catalyst based on attribute data. For details of the Catalyst attributes see the L(Catalyst::Plugin::Navigation) documentation.

METHODS

populate($c)

Populates the menu based on the controllers found in the Catalyst object.

add_action($action)

Adds an element into the menu based on the Catalyst action provided.

get_child_with_path($path)

Returns a child NavigationMenu item that contains the given path. If no child is found then undef is returned.

add_item($item)

Adds the given menu item to this tree under the appropriate path entry. If the path entry isn't found then it is added to this tree.

get_navigation($c, $attrs)

Returns an array reference to a menu entry. This will only show one level of a menu. The values of the array are the values returned by the L(NavigationMenuItem) nav_entry() method.

sorted_items

Returns the menu items found at this level in sorted order. The sort order is based on their order value and an alphanumeric sort of the menu label.
