B4A Library Circle Menu

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.

Updated 10/10/2017 Version 1.01, Added OpenMenu method.
