B4A Library [B4X] [XUI] AS PopupMenuAdvanced based on xCustomListView

This is a PopupMenu with a xCustomListView, so you can add simply new rows. And also add build in separator or title without having to worry about it yourself.

Not all functions of the normal PopupMenu are available yet. For now it has only the functions I needed for my project.

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. :)

This view is tested on B4A, B4I and B4J. Screenshot from my project.
