    Hello all, it's been a while since i've posted anything, i've created a few libraries small libraries for personal use and have not had so much time to share them.

    Well, today is the day, this library is a wrapper from this library https://android-arsenal.com/details/1/5361 which i wrapped many months ago, i've cleaned it up a little and sharing it with you guys today, is nothing too fancy but it would give a very nice touch to any app in my humble opinion.

    attached is the xml and jar files along with a B4A example on how to use it.
    Also i'am including the resources folder which needs to be included using the
    Please note that the AppCompat library is needed and the AppCompatActivity needs to be extended from the Main Activity.

    Very nice piece of work @walterf25
    Is there any way to be able to use text instead of icons here:
    Dim icons() As String = Array As String("camera_2","icon_setting","save_48","blank_file")
    For instance, use this to display the sub menu names:
    Dim icons() As String = Array As String("Payable","Received","Stock","Comment")
    Also , I noticed that the main menu icon starts out as red, but when clicked, it turns to almost dark brown. Is that by design?

    I'm not sure, i can look into it, according to the original project, you can only do icons, i think is what gives the menu the very good looking feature.

    As far as the main menu icon, the color can be changed to whatever color you prefer, the color after you open the menu is just a darker color of the color you decide to use and is automatically set, i don't think the function to change the darker color is exposed.

    Hey Walt, have you noticed that when you tap the "pink" button on your sample (the icon on the left) there's a "partial ghost" button showing on the bottom right corner of the screen?
