Is there an API or some other documentation about what tags are out there and how they are used for the <liferay-ui> tag library?

Specifically I'm looking for a dropdown menu of sorts, but I would like a complete list also to know what is provided for me so I don't have to re-invent the wheel.

Thanks.

Nathan,

While I have not found an API or some other documentation covering the complete set of OOB taglibs, but below is a resource that may be helpful:

While that describes all the tags, which is helpful, it does not explain the usage.

However beggars can't be choosers. Thanks for the link.

Sometime ago I wrote simple portlet called Liferay-UI Taglib Demo to demonstrate some of the tags. It does not cover all tags but may be you'll find it useful. The source code is available on GitHub so feel free to contribute other tag usage demos.

Did you ever have any luck finding documentation on the tag libraries? I am also looking to create a drop-down menu and am finding it near impossible to figure out how to do it via the aui or liferay tag libraries, as there is no documentation to explain how they work.

I found liferay-ui:navigation, but it is apparently not used in the OOTB Liferay code... at least when I search for it on my file system, I get 0 results.

Any help or insights you can provide are sincerely appreciated!
