BarMenu Components is a package to create menus and popupmenus with a gradient bar - like the classic start-menu. Gradient bar is drawn dynamically so you get very smooth bar with customizable colors. Alternatively you can have bitmap as a bar or even both; bitmap and gradient bar. Gradient bar can have dynamically created vertical caption with highlight and shadow colors. Also you can have additional bitmap (e.g. logo) on the bar. If you want you can also draw the menu bar manually through events.

Menu separator lines in BarMenus can be drawn in a short way - like in Office 2000. Also it is possible to have text in the separator line - like in ICQ. Separator line ends can be faded like in Windows XP.

Making some special application and need custom menu font? These components have MenuFont property to change the font other than the system default just for the menus in your application.

For more flexibility there is a DrawModule concept. DrawModule is separate module which handles the MenuItem drawing for the whole menu. You can switch between different DrawModules in designtime and runtime. Let the user choose the menu look in your application - implement with just one line of code!

These components are compatible with XP and you can set XP look.

Components are compatible with VCL, so it is easy to convert existing menus. In addition BarMenus are resource friendly. Package contains two

demo applications.

BarMenu Components package contains following components:

  • TBcBarMainMenu

    [ D2 | D3 | D4 | D5 | C1 | C3 | C4 | C5 ]
    This component implements a hierarchical file structure as a menu. The folders are displayed in a bold style, and each file is shown with a corresponding default icon (to optimize the speed, the icons are read only just before display - this feature is practical in the case of directories with large number of files). When you hover a cursor over the name of a file, the floating tool-tip will display brief file information: full path, creation date and size in bytes. There are features for sorting files by name, type, size or date. For super large directories with many files a VLM (very long menu) technology with scroll bars is available. Requires Animated Menus 2.5.

    This component performs the operation opposite to that of attaching with TMenuItem2000.AttachMenu property: it enables you to select a part of an existing menu and present it as an independent menu. So, you can reuse a part of the menu in some other structure, for example in a context menu. This allows you to enhance interface capabilities by using existing menus without making any alterations in the program. Requires Animated Menus 2.5.

    [ D2 | D3 | D4 | D5 | C1 | C3 | C4 | C5 ]
    This component is a convenient tool for working with toolbars and menu bars in your application. When this menu pops up, it scans the content of the form to which it belongs, and displays all encountered toolbars and menu bars as menu items. If a toolbar or a menu bar is visible, the appropriate menu item will be checked. When a toolbar is invisible, the menu item will not be checked. When menu appears on the screen, the user can change toolbar or menu bar visibility by simply clicking on the appropriate menu item. Requires Animated Menus 2.5.
