16.1 About Using Lists as Navigation

You can add navigation to your application by creating a list (or a shared collection of links).

You add a list to a page by creating a region and specifying the region type as List. You control the appearance of a list through list templates. For example, you can create static list that functions as navigation using the template Vertical Unordered List with Bullets. Newer themes, such as Universal Theme - 42, support the creation of navigation menus and navigation bars. Navigation menus are lists that render at the top of the page (similar to tabs) or display as a side bar. A navigation bar displays with a list template in the #NAVIGATION_BAR# position on your page template.

The Sample Database Application includes a navigation menu and a navigation bar.
