Ionic Sidemenu 2 (Ionic 3)
Created on Mar 18, 2017


A beautiful multilevel collapsible menu (maximum of 3, I recommend that we don't need more than 3 levels) on the side menu (app drawer), NOW ON IONIC 2. Works as a clean component You are all set!

I always take it serious to keep the code quality high, with clean and self-explained code. When purchasing this, you also get my latest "helper" snippets inside the package to make it more fun to code.


Watch on Youtube

Event handler for onSelect

In the parent component you can get the selected category by creating your handler

# src/app/app.component.ts
onMenuSelect(cat) {'In app.components: selected category', cat);
    this.selectedCategory = cat;
    this.nav.setRoot(Home, {
      selectedCategory: cat
