SharePoint 2010 Web Part Displaying a Custom Menu

Hi, I need to develop a custom menu that will be used to launch our One-Click (smart client) applications.  I am wondering if I could use a WebPart in some fashone to accomplish htis.  We are running SharePoint 2010 and developing with Visual Studio 2010.  I am looking for ideas/direction on best approach to take.   Custom menu is not a replacement for the standard SharePoint menu but rather can be another menu displayed somewhere on hte page.
Thanks in advance,
Terry

Have you thought of using Silverlight? That can make highly interactive menu's and is supported in SharePoint 2010.

Question :
what is the scope of this Menu ?  is it Application, Sitecollection ,  web ?

In that case you can determine if a webpart on the Side navigation is an option, if that is the case, simply modify the master page to add a webpart zone on the left Navigation (quick launch ) and place your webpart there.

best of luck.

I am interested in using Silverlight if possible.  The menu could be global across all pages in the site.  So could I create a Silverlight menu and place it in a WebPart?  Is that possible?

Hello ,

I am sure it can be done via Silverlight , but that will depend on your application's master page layout.

You can use Silverlight and put it in a webpart, there is a specific webpart for that. However, if you want this to appear on all your pages you will have to add the silverlight to your masterpage.
