Tried to make it appear left or right but animation is not my strongest point :)

Want to use it as a replacement for the Quick vertical menu together with the actionbar. That will probably solve my issues without the need for libraries.

Could you add either left or right top?

Excellent work mate.... Just to let you know, there is a bug, if the keyboard is open, and you press the menu key, the SlideMenu behaves unexpectedly. It shows the menu, but no click event get registered.

Very nice indeed. It scrolls properly when a large number of items are added to it.

I had a similar problem. After three clicks the events stopped being registered.

Just after

B4X:
   mBackPanel.BringToFront
   mSlidePanel.BringToFront

I added

B4X:
   mListView.BringToFront

That solved my problem.

See line 81,82 in the class.

Thanks for a great class!

Can someone confirm a bug for me? To reproduce:
Set one of the Item's to start a separate activity
Open Menu
Select Item (opens new activity)
Go back to first activity
Open Menu

On my device the menu will open and close really fast. I have to press menu once again in order to open and use it. I am assuming something needs to go in Activity_Resume, just not sure what exactly. Anyone?

Ahh, I seemed to have found the problem.

sm.IsVisible doesn't get set to false when opening a new activity. This is my temp fix until someone can comment on this:

In SlideMenu class add:
B4X:
Public Sub SetVisible (Visible As Boolean)
   mSlidePanel.Visible = Visible
End Sub

In main activity, under Activity_Pause add:
B4X:
sm.SetVisible(False)

This does the trick, but maybe someone has a better way?

Hi

I like the slide menu so I included it in my app. However the software crashes now. I included the code that JonPM suggested.

To get an crash do the following:
- download slidemenucrash.zip
- start app
- open the menu
- slowly (!!) press on the Screenshot - or About & Help item

The strange thing is that when you click the item very fast it all goes well.

Can some one help me here?

Thanks

Henk

I get no crash with the About & Help item.
The width of you slide menu is not enough for my screen (854x480). You should define it in dips instead of %.

Informatx, touch the help & about item for about 1 second. What happens then?
