renderMenu {bs4Dash}R Documentation

Create dynamic menu output (server side)

Description

Create dynamic menu output (server side)

Usage

renderMenu(expr, env = parent.frame(), quoted = FALSE, outputArgs = list())

Arguments

expr

An expression that returns a Shiny tag object, HTML(), or a list of such objects.

env

The parent environment for the reactive expression. By default, this is the calling environment, the same as when defining an ordinary non-reactive expression. If expr is a quosure and quoted is TRUE, then env is ignored.

quoted

If it is TRUE, then the quote()ed value of expr will be used when expr is evaluated. If expr is a quosure and you would like to use its expression as a value for expr, then you must set quoted to TRUE.

outputArgs

A list of arguments to be passed through to the implicit call to uiOutput() when renderUI is used in an interactive R Markdown document.

See Also

menuOutput for the corresponding client side function and examples.

Other menu outputs: dropdownMenuOutput(), menuItemOutput(), menuOutput(), sidebarMenuOutput()

Examples

if (interactive()) {
  library(shiny)
  library(bs4Dash)
  messageData <- data.frame(
    from = c("Admininstrator", "New User", "Support"),
    message = c(
      "Sales are steady this month.",
      "How do I register?",
      "The new server is ready."

        )
      )
    )
  )

  server <- function(input, output) {
    output$messageMenu <- renderMenu({
      # Code to generate each of the messageItems here, in a list. messageData
      # is a data frame with two columns, 'from' and 'message'.
      # Also add on slider value to the message content, so that messages update.
      msgs <- apply(messageData, 1, function(row) {
        messageItem(
          from = row[["from"]],
          message = paste(row[["message"]], input$slider)
