Sliding menu from the bottom?

They have asked me a menu like the menu of this application "Formula 1.com 2010 aplication", is a menu with 5 horizontal images that appears when you press the menu button, and appears sliding from the bottom of the screen.


I have searched through forum but i did not find any case about that, I search as "menu bar", "slide bar"...

Re: Sliding menu from the bottom?

I think you can use pushGlobalScreen as peter_strange did.


it is used for tooltip.

but you can use it like a menu with little changes.

Thank you!
I use a popup Screen, setting x and y position and it that I need.

Re: Sliding menu from the bottom?

Smooth transitions pre-5.0 are surprizingly non-trivial. In general you'll have to create a TimerTask which will re-layout your popup screen every so often (50 ms is usually OK - that's 20 frames/sec) with the new position.

Your PopupScreen can setPosition(x, y) in its sublayout - that's how you move it around.


I hope it makes sense to you. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
