Is it possible to use the call SP.Navigation.set_useShared(true) to inherit the top link bar in the javascript to create a sub site?

  • It's unclear what you're asking, are you talking about inheriting the top navigation or creating a sub site?

You can do it using sp.publishing.js

var webNavSettings = new SP.Publishing.Navigation.WebNavigationSettings(context, currentWeb);
var navigation = webNavSettings.get_globalNavigation(); 
context.executeQueryAsync(function(){   alert("Navigation Modification Successful");         },function(sender,args){       alert(args.get_message());       });
