       [rz] Flat Side Menu

The most lightweight solution to add modern slidable menu panels in both sides of the page.

Some features:

- Multi-instance in each side and both sides with synchronization.
- Highly customizable; colors, alignments, sizes, patterns, images, opacity level, RWD support and more.
- Both LTR and RTL support (also mixed).
- Full keyboard navigability support.
- Persistent open/close modes between pages.
- Indicates the current page with a different colors set.
- Embeddable objects before and/or after the options menu.
- Options can be links and/or events.
- Options and open/close button can have their own tooltips.
- Custom events/functions calls in every sequence: 'onopen', 'onopened', 'onslide', 'onclose', 'onclosed'.
- Smart auto-close method.
- Smart centralized "one-scrollbar" when the options do not fit within the available space.
- Can be handled programatically (click on this sample to test both left and right sides).
- Selectable overlay, fade overlay, reveal or auto-reflow modes.
- Lightweight, no jQuery required.
- Maximum compatibility with other [rz] plug-ins.
- Maximum cross-browser, cross-platform and backward compatibility.

...and many, many more!

How to use?

1. Drag and drop this extension and enter the options menu, this means the links to the
    available pages in your project.
2. Optionally, you can setup additional properties such as margins, images, colors and
    a lot of other possible customization options; or leave them as by default.
3. Preview or publish.

How to insert a category?

1. Enter the options you need.
2. Enter a category as you do with normal options but be sure that you have cleared the link-to entry.
3. Move it up/down wherever you need.
4. Optionally, you can setup a different style for categories.

Available custom functions:

You can have your own images, links or any other object that supports events.
The event, usually "onclick", can call the following available functions:; to open the menu.
MyMenu.close(); to close the menu.
MyMenu.toggle(); to toggle the status of the menu panel; if the menu is opened, the panel is closed; if the menu is closed, the panel is opened.

Replace "
MyMenu" with the actual extension instance name.

Available custom events functions calls:

onopen: the event is triggered when the open sequence starts.
onopened: the event is triggered when the open sequence has been completed.
onslide: the event is triggered during the opening/closing cycle.
onclose: the event is triggered when the close sequence starts.
onclosed: the event is triggered when the close sequence has been completed.
