Description

An easy to use menu view, located at the bottom left corner of the screen.

Alt text

Required min API level 11

BASIC USAGE

Download

Edit your gradle script to include the library:

dependencies {
        compile 'com.rany.albeg.wein.bottomleftmenu:bottom-left-menu:1.1.4'
}

Add the menu to your XML layout file:

<RelativeLayout
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"


...

&lt;com.rany.albeg.wein.bottomleftmenu.BottomLeftMenu
    android:id="@+id/bottom_left_menu"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"

    &lt;!-- Custom attributes ( values are set to default in this example ): --&gt;

    app:blm_itemNormalStateColor="@android:color/transparent"
    app:blm_itemPressedStateColor="#0099cc"
    app:blm_itemTextColor="@android:color/black"
    app:blm_itemTextSize="12sp"
    app:blm_openCloseAnimation="bottom_top" &lt;!-- More options are: left_right and fade_in--&gt;
    app:blm_showDivider="true"
    app:blm_dividerHeight="1dp"
    app:blm_dividerColor="#d3d3d3"&gt;

&lt;/com.rany.albeg.wein.bottomleftmenu.BottomLeftMenu&gt;
</RelativeLayout>

Use the menu in java code, like so:

mMenu = (BottomLeftMenu) findViewById(R.id.bottom_left_menu);
/*
 * Populate the menu with views.
 */
mMenu.addMenuItem(R.drawable.ic_action_settings, R.string.settings, _MENU_ID_SETTINGS);
mMenu.addMenuItem(R.drawable.ic_action_about, R.string.about, _MENU_ID_ABOUT);
mMenu.addMenuItem(R.drawable.ic_rating_good, R.string.rate, _MENU_ID_RATE);
mMenu.addMenuItem(R.drawable.ic_action_search, R.string.search, _MENU_ID_SEARCH);
mMenu.addMenuItem(R.drawable.ic_social_share, R.string.share, _MENU_ID_SHARE);
mMenu.addMenuItem(R.drawable.ic_collections_cloud, R.string.upload, _MENU_ID_UPLOAD);
mMenu.addMenuItem(R.drawable.ic_social_send_now, R.string.send, _MENU_ID_SEND);
/*
 * Set a listener for click events.
 */
mMenu.setOnBottomLeftMenuItemClickListener(this);

Handle click events:

@Override
public void onClick(BottomLeftMenuItem item) {
    /*
     * getIdentifier(), not getId()
     */
    int id = item.getIdentifier();


if (id == _MENU_ID_UPLOAD) {
    /* Upload something */
}
else if (id == _MENU_ID_SHARE) {
    /* Share something */
}
else if (id == _MENU_ID_SEND) {
    /* Send something */
}

// etc...
}

MORE FEATURES

1. Get a reference to each one of the items in the menu, by:

BottomLeftMenuItem item = mMenu.getMenuItemAt(index);
TextView itemText= item.getTextView();
ImageView itemIcon = item.getImageView();

2. Implement your own custom animation for opening and closing the menu:

mMenu.setOpenCloseAnimation(new OpenCloseAnimation(this) {


@Override
public Animation open() {
    /* Return an Animation object for opening the menu. */
}

@Override
public Animation close() {
    /* Return an Animation object for closing the menu. */
}
});

EXTRA

You might want to override onBackPressed() and onKeyDown(int keyCode, KeyEvent event) for opening and closing the menu:

@Override
public boolean onKeyDown(int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {


if (keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MENU) {

    if (mMenu.isOpened())
        mMenu.closeMenu();
    else {
        mMenu.openMenu();
    }
    return true;
}
return super.onKeyDown(keyCode, event);

}

@Override public void onBackPressed() {


if (mMenu.isOpened()) {
    mMenu.closeMenu();
} else {
    super.onBackPressed();
}
}
