Material Popup Menu

This library allows to create simple popup menus programmatically with a nice type-safe builder syntax in Kotlin. Menus can be divided into separate sections with optional headers and contain icons.

Getting started

To create a popup menu with a single section from an anchor view:

    fun onSingleSectionWithIconsClicked(view: View) {
        val popupMenu = popupMenu {
            section {
                item {
                    label = "Copy"
                    icon = R.drawable.abc_ic_menu_copy_mtrl_am_alpha //optional
                    callback = { //optional
                        Toast.makeText(this@LightActivity, "Copied!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                    }
                }
                item {
                    label = "Paste"
                    iconDrawable = ContextCompat.getDrawable(this@LightActivity, R.drawable.abc_ic_menu_paste_mtrl_am_alpha) //optional
                    callback = { //optional
                        Toast.makeText(this@LightActivity, "Text pasted!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                    }
                }
                item {
                    label = "Select all"
                    icon = R.drawable.abc_ic_menu_selectall_mtrl_alpha //optional
                }
            }
        }

        popupMenu.show(this@LightActivity, view)
    }

To create a popup menu with 2 sections and a section title in the second one:

    fun onSingleSectionWithIconsClicked(view: View) {
        val popupMenu = popupMenu {
            section {
                item {
                    label = "Copy"
                    icon = R.drawable.abc_ic_menu_copy_mtrl_am_alpha
                    callback = {
                        Toast.makeText(this@LightActivity, "Copied!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                    }
                }
                item {
                    label = "Paste"
                    icon = R.drawable.abc_ic_menu_paste_mtrl_am_alpha
                    callback = {
                        Toast.makeText(this@LightActivity, "Text pasted!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                    }
                }
            }
            section {
                title = "Other"
                item {
                    label = "Select all"
                    icon = R.drawable.abc_ic_menu_selectall_mtrl_alpha
                }
            }
        }

        popupMenu.show(this@LightActivity, view)
    }

Custom views

You can use your own layouts for displaying the items in each section alongside the default layouts provided by the library. E.g.:

    fun onCustomItemsClicked(view: View) {
        val popupMenu = popupMenu {
            dropdownGravity = Gravity.END
            section {
                item {
                    label = "Copy"
                    icon = R.drawable.abc_ic_menu_copy_mtrl_am_alpha
                    callback = {
                        Toast.makeText(this@LightActivity, "Copied!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                    }
                }
                customItem {
                    layoutResId = R.layout.view_custom_item_checkable
                    viewBoundCallback = { view ->
                        val checkBox: CheckBox = view.findViewById(R.id.customItemCheckbox)
                        checkBox.isChecked = true
                    }
                    callback = {
                        Toast.makeText(this@LightActivity, "Disabled!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                    }
                }
                customItem {
                    layoutResId = R.layout.view_custom_item_large
                }
            }
        }

        popupMenu.show(this@LightActivity, view)
    }

Custom colors

To achieve the above you need to set labelColor and iconColor on each item in a section as shown here:

    fun onCustomColorsClicked(view: View) {
        val popupMenu = popupMenu {
            style = R.style.Widget_MPM_Menu_Dark_CustomBackground
            section {
                item {
                    label = "Copy"
                    labelColor = ContextCompat.getColor(this@LightActivity, R.color.red)
                    icon = R.drawable.abc_ic_menu_copy_mtrl_am_alpha
                    iconColor = ContextCompat.getColor(this@LightActivity, R.color.dark_red)
                    callback = {
                        Toast.makeText(this@LightActivity, "Copied!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                    }
                }
                item {
                    label = "Paste"
                    labelColor = ContextCompat.getColor(this@LightActivity, R.color.red)
                    icon = R.drawable.abc_ic_menu_paste_mtrl_am_alpha
                    iconColor = ContextCompat.getColor(this@LightActivity, R.color.dark_red)
                    callback = {
                        Toast.makeText(this@LightActivity, "Text pasted!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                    }
                }
            }
            section {
                item {
                    label = "Share"
                    labelColor = ContextCompat.getColor(this@LightActivity, R.color.green)
                    icon = R.drawable.abc_ic_menu_share_mtrl_alpha
                    iconColor = ContextCompat.getColor(this@LightActivity, R.color.dark_green)
                    callback = {
                        shareUrl()
                    }
                }
            }
        }

        popupMenu.show(this@LightActivity, view)
    }

To change the popup background color you need to create a custom style and pass it under style to the popup builder above. E.g. to use the primary color you could define the style like this:

<resources>
    <style name="Widget.MPM.Menu.Dark.CustomBackground">
        <item name="android:colorBackground">@color/colorPrimary</item>
    </style>
</resources>

FAQ

I want to use the library but I don't know Kotlin

Kotlin is extremely easy to use if you already know Java. Check out the official documentation - it's really great!

I have not migrated to AndroidX. Can I use this library?

If you're still using legacy Android Support libraries you can use version 2.2.0. AndroidX is supported by default since 3.0.0.
