B4A Class [B4X] [XUI] AS Popup Menu

This is a simple cross platform Popup Menu.

I spend a lot of time in creating views, like this and to create a high quality view cost a lot of time. If you want to support me and further views, then you can do it here by Paypal or with a coffee. :)

Fast example:
aspm_MoreOptions.Initialize(Root,Me,"aspm_MoreOptions")
 
aspm_MoreOptions.ItemLabelProperties.ItemBackgroundColor = xui.Color_ARGB(255,19, 20, 22) 'Change the Background Color of the item
aspm_MoreOptions.AddMenuItem("Share location",1)'Add item
aspm_MoreOptions.AddMenuItem("Settings",2)'Add item

aspm_MoreOptions.OrientationHorizontal = aspm_MoreOptions.OrientationHorizontal_RIGHT
aspm_MoreOptions.OrientationVertical = aspm_MoreOptions.OrientationVertical_BOTTOM
 
aspm_MoreOptions.ItemLabelProperties.BackgroundColor = xui.Color_ARGB(200,0,0,0)'black
 
aspm_MoreOptions.OpenMenu(xlbl_MoreOptions,150dip)

Add setMenuCornerRadius - sets the corner radius for the menu (works only in B4A and B4I)

This is the relevant code from B4XImageView:
B4X:
#if B4J
    Dim jo As JavaObject = mBase
    Dim shape As JavaObject
    If mRound Then
        Dim radius As Double = Min(mBase.Width / 2, mBase.Height / 2)
        Dim cx As Double = mBase.Width / 2
        Dim cy As Double = mBase.Height / 2
        shape.InitializeNewInstance("javafx.scene.shape.Circle", Array(cx, cy, radius))
    Else
        Dim cx As Double = mBase.Width
        Dim cy As Double = mBase.Height
        shape.InitializeNewInstance("javafx.scene.shape.Rectangle", Array(cx, cy))
        If mCornersRadius > 0 Then
            Dim d As Double = mCornersRadius
            shape.RunMethod("setArcHeight", Array(d))
            shape.RunMethod("setArcWidth", Array(d))
        End If
    End If
    jo.RunMethod("setClip", Array(shape))
#else if B4A

Is it possible to include symbols with Material Icons or FontAwesome?

sure, but the result is not so good:
B4X:
    For i = 0 To 4 -1
        aspm_main.LabelProperties.ItemBackgroundColor = xui.Color_ARGB(255,Rnd(1,256), Rnd(1,256), Rnd(1,256))
        aspm_main.LabelProperties.xFont = xui.CreateMaterialIcons(15)
        aspm_main.AddMenuItem(Chr(0xE859) &  " Test_" & (i +1),"item_" & i)
    Next

Does it support CSBuilder?
Yes, but only on B4A and B4I.
B4X:
    For i = 0 To 4 -1
        aspm_main.LabelProperties.ItemBackgroundColor = xui.Color_ARGB(255,Rnd(1,256), Rnd(1,256), Rnd(1,256))
        Dim cs As CSBuilder
        'aspm_main.AddMenuItem(Chr(0xE859) &  " Test_" & (i +1),"item_" & i)
        aspm_main.AddMenuItem("","item_" & i)
        aspm_main.GetMenuItemAt_Label(i).Text = cs.Initialize.Typeface(Typeface.MATERIALICONS).Append(Chr(0xE859)).Typeface(Typeface.DEFAULT).Append(" Test_" & (i +1)).PopAll
    Next

Hi. I am trying to change the background color of the title with no luck so far.

Change background title color:
aspm_main.TitleLabelProperties.BackgroundColor = xui.color_White
aspm_main.AddTitle("Title",60dip)

But the background color is still black. It doesn't matter what color I put on it.

Thank you. Background is changed, but a black border continues to surround it.

Solved assigning color to ItemBackgroundColor

B4X:
aspm_main.TitleLabelProperties.BackgroundColor = xui.Color_Gray
aspm_main.TitleLabelProperties.ItemBackgroundColor = xui.Color_Gray
aspm_main.AddTitle("Title",60dip)
