Library File & Example Download

Latest Version: 110 : All Future Updates of this component are maintained here.

1. Each menu item can be assigned a badge.
2. The radial menu can be placed anywhere in the screen, top left, bottom right etc. (to figure out how to center on page)

Here is some example code...

Sub Globals
    'These global variables will be redeclared each time the activity is created.
    'These variables can only be accessed from this module.
    Private rm As AMRadialMenu
    Private pg As AMPage
End Sub

Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    'Do not forget to load the layout file created with the visual designer. For example:
    Activity.Title = "Radial Menu"
    pg.Initialize(Me, "pg",0dip,0dip,100%x,100%y)
    rm.Initialize("rm","settings.png", "windowsback.png", True)
    'rm.Position = rm.EnumRadialMenuPosition.righttop
    'rm.enableAnimation = False
    rm.BackgroundColor = "red"
    'rm.Radius = "100"
    'rm.renderMode = pg.EnumRenderMode.android

    'add individual menu items
    rm.AddMenuItem("google", "Google", "", "google.png", True)
    rm.AddMenuItem("music", "Music", "", "music.png", True)
    rm.AddMenuItem("direction", "Direction", "", "map.png", True)
    rm.AddMenuItem("message", "Message", "300", "messaging.png", True)

    Activity.AddView(pg.asview, 0dip, 0dip, Activity.Width, Activity.Height)
    Activity.AddMenuItem3("Tiles", "cmdTiles",LoadBitmap(File.DirAssets,"tiles.png"),True)

What's New: Version 109 (same location as in Post #1)

1. The WindowsTheme Outer Circle can now be transparent. As the radius for this theme is smaller, increase it

rm.Radius = 200
rm.HideOuterCircle = True

2. Added functionality for SubMenus, for example the Twitt menu has child buttons.. Clicking the arrow goes back to the menu. In this case, the outer circle is hidden so one has to touch just outside that button. If there are no child buttons, there is nothing to worry about. Investigating how I can just show only the arrow button if there are child buttons.


3. Removed the GetID method, the MenuClicked item now returns the id of the selected menu and id of child menu if it exists. For now this is still buggy and only works for the Flat and Windows themes.

Sub pg_MenuClicked(value As String, childIndex As String)
    'update the badge
    'return the clicked value and childindex
    Activity.Title = value & "," & childIndex
End Sub
4. Added some extra methods for the Radial Menu. Each item in the menu has an index starting from zero, in the sequence you add items to the RadialMenu in.

4.1 DisableItemByIndex
4.2 EnableItemByIndex
4.3 HideBadge
4.4 ShowBadge
4.5 UpdateBadgeValue
4.6 SetRenderMode
4.7. SetPosition
4.8 SetRadius


    EnumRadialMenuPosition.leftcenter = "leftcenter"
    EnumRadialMenuPosition.lefttop = "lefttop"
    EnumRadialMenuPosition.leftbottom = "leftbottom"
    EnumRadialMenuPosition.rightcenter = "rightcenter"
    EnumRadialMenuPosition.righttop = "righttop"
    EnumRadialMenuPosition.rightbottom = "rightbottom"
    EnumRadialMenuPosition.topcenter = "topcenter"
    EnumRadialMenuPosition.bottomleft = "bottomleft"
    EnumRadialMenuPosition.bottomcenter = "bottomcenter"
    EnumRadialMenuPosition.none = ""

   EnumRenderMode.windows = "windows"
   EnumRenderMode.auto = "auto"
   EnumRenderMode.android = "android"
   EnumRenderMode.flat = "flat"
   EnumRenderMode.ios7 = "ios7"

    rmi.AddSubMenu("music", "Music",  "", "music.png", True)
    rmi.AddSubMenu("direction", "Direction", "", "map.png", True)

Congratulations for your work.
You can use AMRadialMnu on a page other than AMPage. I would like to use this control on a page that I have already defined. Or can you put AMPage transparent?

Thanks for your answer.
