Can show up to 7 items.

B4A project is attached. Class is supported by B4J and B4i as well. Depends on XUI and BitmapCreator libraries.

Example with gradient stroke:

I've just had a quick search for icons to place directly into this menu, @Erel this has some great potential. I have some more iOS learning to complete but it does look like menu will definitely be making its way into a project near me sooner rather than later :)

B4X:
Sub Globals
    Private XUI As XUI
    Private HexMMain As HexMenu
    Private GD As GradientDrawable
End Sub

Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    'Do not forget to load the layout file created with the visual designer. For example:
    Activity.LoadLayout("Menu")
    Activity.Title = "HEX Menu"

    Dim TopColor As Long = 0xFFFF7DE1 '0xFF1798A2
    Dim BottomColor As Long = 0xFFFFED8C '0xFFECF0BC
    GD.Initialize("TOP_BOTTOM", Array As Int(TopColor, BottomColor))
    Activity.Background = GD

    For Each lbl As B4XView In HexMMain.labels
        lbl.Font = XUI.CreateFontAwesome(16)
    Next

    Dim Imaages() As Object = Array As Object(Chr(0xF15C), Chr(0xF0F6), Chr(0xF0C0), Chr(0xF07A), Chr(0xF15A), Chr(0xF0D6), Chr(0xF080))
    Dim Options() As String = Array As String("Invoice", "Quote", "Contacts", "Stock", "Sales", "Payments", "Charts")

    For i = 0 To 6
        HexMMain.Items.Add($"${Imaages(i)}${CRLF}${Options(i)}"$)
    Next
    HexMMain.Update
End Sub

Android = Fonts too small, but you get the gist

iPhone - No icons, but it's still looking good

Thank you...

Yes , I want items without fill .

I had understood a different thing, how to set an image on the background of the entire menu (to do this you have to "work" on the basic panel).

You can make Items transparent by setting their color to Transparent

Set Fill Color to Transparent.
I added getBase property to the HexMenu (changed to version: 2.11, included in the project attached):

Is it possible to have a long_click/double_click in this hexmenu? I had a look at the sub Pnl_touch but I could only find TOUCH_ACTION_DOWN, TOUCH_ACTION_UP and TOUCH_ACTION_MOVE.

Is it possible to use CSBuilder to get better icons/text? I tried but doesn`t seem to be doing anything....
B4X:
    dim cs1 as csbuilder
    cs1.Initialize.Size(20).Typeface(Typeface.DEFAULT)
    cs1.Alignment("ALIGN_CENTER").color(Colors.RGB(62,62,62)).Typeface(Typeface.FONTAWESOME).Append(Chr(0xF1D8)).Append(CRLF)
    cs1.Alignment("ALIGN_CENTER").Size(20).color(Colors.RGB(107,142,35)).Append("VERIFY")
    cs1.popall

    adv_hex_menu.Items.AddAll(Array As String(cs1, "1","2","3","4","5","6"))

Just tried with:
B4X:
Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    'Do not forget to load the layout file created with the visual designer. For example:
    Activity.LoadLayout("1")
    For i = 1 To 10
        Dim cs As CSBuilder
        HexMenu1.Items.Add(cs.Initialize.Size(i * 3).Append("test").PopAll)
    Next
    HexMenu1.Update
End Sub

Sub HexMenu1_Click (Index As Int, Text As Object) 'change type to object
    Activity.Title = Text
End Sub
