B4J Library [B4j] MenuButton

I wanted to add a menu to a form that is to be used in a narrow portrait orientation. I have dealt with this before using a normal button and a popup menu. but as there is a MenuButton control in JavafX I thought I'd wrap it.

Nothing spectacular to see, but functional.

There are a few custom options which are pretty self explanatory:

As most of my projects are now incorporating dark and light themes I have started adding a Use Stylesheet option where appropriate. Selecting this will clear the styles added by the designer and add appropriate Styleclasses :

For this view, the styleclasses are added regardless of selecting the option as there is a small css file in the library that hides the arrow and sorts out centring of the label as a graphic in the button.

You can set the fonts for the menu items and the tooltip separately. The label is used as a graphic for the menubutton, so any font set in the designer will be kept.

Menu Items are added in the same manner as for a Menubar, using a JSON string, or In code using the MenuButtonCV.Items method.

Full code is in the project and there is a B4xlib as well.
