Very basic example of how it’s possible to manipulate menu items by destroying the Dock (requires v2.0+), changing it, and then re-initialising it. I’ve used a list, but the same principles apply for non-lists. Note that care needs to be taken with styling in order to get seamless transition between docked and undocked!
This category contains all the jqDock examples that I have put together. You may find them easier to view on the Examples page, below jqDock.
I was asked if it was possible to sit the menu on a 3D-type base, similar to another ‘Dock’ plugin for jQuery. The answer is … Yes.
