Change the Orientation

To arrange items on the menu panel in a row (horizontally) or in a column (vertically), use the orientation option.

JavaScript
$(function () {
    $("#menuContainer").dxMenu({
        items: menuItems,
        orientation: "horizontal" // or "vertical"
    });
});

If you need to shift the menu panel towards the bottom or the left side, specify padding for the <div> that contains the widget. For example, the following code shifts the widget towards the bottom.

HTML
<div id="menuContainer" style="padding-top:500px"></div>

When the widget is positioned at the bottom or at the left side, you may want to change the direction in which the drop-down menus open. For this purpose, set the submenuDirection option to "rightOrTop".

JavaScript
$(function () {
    $("#menuContainer").dxMenu({
        items: menuItems,
        orientation: "horizontal", // or "vertical"
        submenuDirection: "rightToTop"
    });
});
