B4A Library [B4X] [XUI] AS TabMenuAdvanced

A container view controller that manages a multiselection interface, where the selection determines which child view controller to display.

This view was developed and structured from scratch :)

i spend a lot of time in creating views, some views i need by my self, but some views not and to create a high quality view cost a lot of time. If you want to support me, then you can do it here by Paypal or with a coffee. :)

Hi. I am a beginner. Doing an assignment. I downloaded the AsTabMenu codes because we are supposed to have a bottom navigation for our project. I am running into error as i am missing a library.

Its because you have not selected the library.

Go to the first post and download the As_Tabmenuadvanced and place it in your additional libraries folder. Then refresh your libraries and Select it from there

i cant change fonttype and fontsize in tab menu
But you can, there are several ways to do this.

Before you add the tabs:
B4X:
AS_TabMenuAdvanced1.TabProperties.TextFont = xui.CreateDefaultBoldFont(15)
Only for one Tab:
B4X:
AS_TabMenuAdvanced1.GetTab(2).xTabProperties.TextFont = xui.CreateDefaultBoldFont(15)
AS_TabMenuAdvanced1.Refresh
Add your own properties already when adding:
B4X:
Dim xTab As ASTabMenuAdvanced_Tab = AS_TabMenuAdvanced1.CreateASTabMenuAdvanced_Tab("Test Item",Null,Null)
Dim xTabProperties As ASTabMenuAdvanced_TabProperties = AS_TabMenuAdvanced1.CreateASTabMenuAdvanced_TabProperties(xui.CreateDefaultFont(15),xui.Color_ARGB(255,32, 33, 37),xui.Color_ARGB(255,45, 136, 121),xui.Color_ARGB(255,255,255,255),xui.Color_ARGB(255,60, 64, 67),0)
AS_TabMenuAdvanced1.AddTabAdvanced(xTab,xTabProperties)

Hi Alex,
Maybe this might not be related to your library, but I noticed that if a user change their font size or screen size setting on their phone, some of the menu options disappear.

Do you have any idea on how to fix that?

Hi Alexander
I am trying to use your AS-TabMenuAdvanced library, how can I select from code a Tab instead of clicking on with mouse?
One more thing, to add a tab I use:
Code:
menu.AddTab("",Utility.FontAwesomeToBitmap(Chr(0xF015),17,xui.Color_White),Utility.FontAwesomeToBitmap(Chr(0xF015),17,xui.Color_Gray))
How can I change from code the image/icon of the Tab?

Thank you and congratulations on the library

P.S.
I know it is inside your library the sub to convert from IconFont to Image but for convenience I use my utility sub

B4X:
AS_TabMenuAdvanced1.Index = 4
AS_TabMenuAdvanced1.Refresh

How can I change from code the image/icon of the Tab?
B4X:
AS_TabMenuAdvanced1.GetTab(2).xTab.IconSelected = xui.LoadBitmap(File.DirAssets,"home_active.png")
AS_TabMenuAdvanced1.Refresh
Thank you and congratulations on the library
Thanks :)

Thanks Alexander
however, if I go back to another Tab the Tab where I had changed the image returning to the previous image and if I go back to select it, it displays the new image.

I dont't understand your Problem.
Remember that there can be 3 different types of icons. If a tab is selected, the "IconSelected" is displayed, if a tab is not selected, the "IconUnselected" is displayed. When a tab is disabled, the "IconDisabled" is displayed.

Hi, I have been using your class ASBottomMenu for a long time, with that class i could use the sliding indicator "inside" the menu bar (not in the bottom border)
Is it possible to achieve that with TabMenuAdvanced?

Many thanks in advance.
