Fly-out menu

The fly-out menu is a hierarchical menu that puts the sub-menus to the right-hand side of the parent menu. They "fly out" of the parent menu.

The menu entries are <b:navLink /> tags supporting both AJAX and non-AJAX navigation.

You can create a submenu by grouping several menu entries in a <b:dropMenu /> tag.
