using wp_nav_menu to show a custom menu in wordpress

found this quick code snippit here, its not working just for reference of what the array items do. 

Here is how you would display the menu called "Projects"


          $nav_args = array('menu' => "Projects");



wp_nav_menu( array $args = array(
              'menu'              => "", // (int|string|WP_Term) Desired menu. Accepts a menu ID, slug, name, or object.
              'menu_class'        => "", // (string) CSS class to use for the ul element which forms the menu. Default 'menu'.
              'menu_id'           => "", // (string) The ID that is applied to the ul element which forms the menu. Default is the menu slug, incremented.
              'container'         => "", // (string) Whether to wrap the ul, and what to wrap it with. Default 'div'.
              'container_class'   => "", // (string) Class that is applied to the container. Default 'menu-{menu slug}-container'.
              'container_id'      => "", // (string) The ID that is applied to the container.
              'fallback_cb'       => "", // (callable|bool) If the menu doesn't exists, a callback function will fire. Default is 'wp_page_menu'. Set to false for no fallback.
              'before'            => "", // (string) Text before the link markup.
              'after'             => "", // (string) Text after the link markup.
              'link_before'       => "", // (string) Text before the link text.
              'link_after'        => "", // (string) Text after the link text.
              'echo'              => "", // (bool) Whether to echo the menu or return it. Default true.
              'depth'             => "", // (int) How many levels of the hierarchy are to be included. 0 means all. Default 0.
              'walker'            => "", // (object) Instance of a custom walker class.
              'theme_location'    => "", // (string) Theme location to be used. Must be registered with register_nav_menu() in order to be selectable by the user.
              'items_wrap'        => "", // (string) How the list items should be wrapped. Default is a ul with an id and class. Uses printf() format with numbered placeholders.
              'item_spacing'      => "", // (string) Whether to preserve whitespace within the menu's HTML. Accepts 'preserve' or 'discard'. Default 'preserve'.
          ) );

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
