Just added a new feature to the JavaFx radial menu. Now you can choose to display the center of the menu. Three mode are availables : Always, Never and With_Menu. You can specify a node to display on the center circle. Center background and stroke is mapped on the one of the Radial Menu object. You can see it in action in this video.
Next Step, splitting to use the Control/Skin/Behavior, eventually.
Today a small video of the radial menu demo update. Now supporting the sub-menu concept, java fx property based menu and menu item dependencies. Some update done to correctly handle events too.
Next step is to manage the radial center show/hide button and maybe allow to choose the animation used to show/hide. This will introduce the builder pattern that I’m not using for the moment. And another improvement would be to use the Skin/Behavior/Control pattern. May I will wait for the public API to be released
Thanks for those suggesting ideas, I take it into account on the fly.
As part of the JFXtras control, the updated RadialMenu is also delivered here !
This post is related to the radial menu demo. Some nice guys have taken some time to upgrade the demo (and correct little mistakes in the code) to offer this video, showing RadialMenu control working in touch screen device, and using Touch Rotation event support.
Many thanks to José Pereda (@jperedadnr) for his time, contribution and video. I can feel I will love interracting with other JavaFx guys.
Another important information is that thanks to JFXtras guys (@hansolo_), I will integrate this custom control in the JFXtras open source project. Feel free to participate and upgrade code available here !
Today a little poste, quick, just to give a new video of the RadialMenu JavaFx control I’m working on. I also deliver the code in the download page. Feel free to use it ! As usual, if you improve it, contact me to reintegrate your work
I plan to update the work to integrate radial menu properties binding access. Later step will be to create a real reusable Control (with behavior, skin and .. well control separated classes). Then will the subRadialMenu and the Builder pattern object too… But it will take some time guess !
I understood today how to prpose bindable properties and listen to their change. I try to inspire from JFXtras element in order to understand how to build a real custom control.
Well, it is quite a shame, my last post date was… almost a year ago !
I will say in my defence that I was taking a new job, with new responsibilities and a complete city move.. well, it not enough ? You’re right…
Anyway, I’m back, trying to explore the Java world, especially JavaFx. And today, I’d like to present you a gadget that implement in JavaFx the radial menu concept. You can find some articles on the concept at the following link :
