For module parameters - how to select the type of menu and link, how is it implemented in the administrative part, when creating a new menu? Screenshot

I will clarify. I need to insert a link into the url(text) field - like in the article editor - insert a menu / contact / article.

  • After reading your question, I am not sure what the actual question is. Do you mean creating a new menu item for a new menu and the type that you can select for instance? Could you maybe clear it up by explaining what part 1 and part 2 are numbered in your question by editing it and this may help me answer it for you?

  • I don't need to create a new menu. In the parameters of the module is a field with type url - module_urls. For this field, I need to call the dialog for selecting the types of menu items - articles, component links, internal and external links and insert this link in the module_urls.

There is no such default-form-field type ready to use in your xml in joomla! for those fields. You need to create your own custom form field type to have such a functionality / layout.
