Hello !
I just made a circular menu class and i want to share it with you.
The class supports unlimited menu elements with unlimited levels.

The full documentation can be found here :

In the demo example i create this menu :
Code: [Select]

Menu 1 [0]                                         (f:0,d:1,r:0)
Menu 2 [1]                                         (f:1,d:6,r:2)
   Menu 2>Smenu 1  [2]                            (f:1,d:3,r:2)
   Menu 2>Smenu 2  [3]                            (f:1,d:4,r:3)
   Menu 2>Smenu 3  [4]                            (f:1,d:5,r:4)
   Menu 2>up one dir [5]                          (f:1,d:2,r:5)
Menu 3 [6]                                         (f:6,d:14,r:7)
   Menu 3>Smenu 1 [7]                             (f:6,d:8,r:7)
   Menu 3>Smenu 2 [8]                             (f:6,d:12,r:9)
       Menu 3>Smenu 2>SSmenu 1 [9]                (f:8,d:10,r:9)
       Menu 3>Smenu 2>SSmenu 2 [10]               (f:8,d:11,r:10)
       Menu 3>Smenu 2>up one dir [11]             (f:8,d:9,r:11)
   Menu 3>Smenu 3 [12]                            (f:6,d:13,r:12)
   Menu 3>up one dir [13]                         (f:6,d:7,r:13)
Menu 4 [14]                                        (f:14,d:0,r:15)
   Menu 4>Smenu 1 [15]                            (f:14,d:21,r:16)
       Menu 4>Smenu 1>SSmenu 1 [16]               (f:15,d:20,r:17)
           Menu 4>Smenu 1>SSmenu 1>SSSmenu 1 [17] (f:16,d:18,r:17)
           Menu 4>Smenu 1>SSmenu 1>SSSmenu 2 [18] (f:16,d:19,r:18)
           Menu 4>Smenu 1>SSmenu 1>up one dir [19](f:16,d:17,r:19)
       Menu 4>Smenu 1>up one dir [20]             (f:15,d:16,r:20)
   Menu 4>Smenu 2 [21]                            (f:14,d:22,r:21)
   Menu 4>Smenu 3 [22]                            (f:14,d:23,r:22)
   Menu 4>Smenu 4 [23]                            (f:14,d:24,r:23)
   Menu 4>Smenu 5 [24]                            (f:14,d:25,r:24)
   Menu 4>up one dir [25]                         (f:14,d:15,r:25)

The menu definition can be defined like this :
Code: [Select]

 //Menu definition (Title,Father,Down,Next)
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(0))).Set("Menu 1", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(0), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(1),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(0));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(1))).Set("Menu 2", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(1), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(6),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(2));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(2))).Set("Menu 2>Smenu 1", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(1), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(3),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(2));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(3))).Set("Menu 2>Smenu 2", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(1), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(4),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(3));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(4))).Set("Menu 2>Smenu 3", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(1), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(5),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(4));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(5))).Set("Menu 2>up one dir", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(1), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(2),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(5));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(6))).Set("Menu 3", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(6), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(14),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(7));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(7))).Set("Menu 3>Smenu 1", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(6), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(8),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(7));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(8))).Set("Menu 3>Smenu 2", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(6), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(12),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(9));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(9))).Set("Menu 3>Smenu 2>SSmenu 1", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(8), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(10),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(9));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(10))).Set("Menu 3>Smenu 2>SSmenu 2", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(8), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(11),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(10));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(11))).Set("Menu 3>Smenu 2>up one dir", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(8), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(9),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(11));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(12))).Set("Menu 3>Smenu 3", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(6), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(13),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(12));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(13))).Set("Menu 3>up one dir", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(6), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(7),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(13));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(14))).Set("Menu 4", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(14), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(0),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(15));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(15))).Set("Menu 4>Smenu 1", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(14), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(21),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(16));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(16))).Set("Menu 4>Smenu 1>SSmenu 1", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(15), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(20),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(17));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(17))).Set("Menu 4>Smenu 1>SSmenu 1>SSSmenu 1" , MyMenu.GetMenuCell(16), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(18),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(17));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(18))).Set("Menu 4>Smenu 1>SSmenu 1>SSSmenu 2", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(16), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(19),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(18));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(19))).Set("Menu 4>Smenu 1>SSmenu 1>up one dir", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(16), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(17),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(19));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(20))).Set("Menu 4>Smenu 1>up one dir", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(15), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(16),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(20));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(21))).Set("Menu 4>Smenu 2", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(14), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(22),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(21));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(22))).Set("Menu 4>Smenu 3", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(14), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(23),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(22));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(23))).Set("Menu 4>Smenu 4", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(14), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(24),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(23));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(24))).Set("Menu 4>Smenu 5", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(14), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(25),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(24));
 (*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(25))).Set("Menu 4>up one dir", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(14), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(15),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(25));

Let me know what do you think !


Thank you for such a nice menu..It will be helpful if you further explain it for us or do a small documentation if possible..Again my thanks to you for such great efforts and sharing with rest of us..

Sorry for the above post..you have documented it very well.. I am using one-wire Keypad(12 buttons) controlled with one Analogue pin only. Any chance of using it with your menu?..Another question is can you add example of blinking or anything done when clicking a certain menu?..In any menu item if i want to change the value can i do it?

Problems w/ Arduino 1.0

Working with the Advanced example.  Copied most of it and changed to work with Visual Studio + Arduino 1.0

While it compiles, when uploaded to my board, all I get is a cursor on 0,0 of my LCD.  I commented everything out and my system seems to stop at this first line in the setup():

(*(MyMenu.GetMenuCell(0))).Set("Menu 1", MyMenu.GetMenuCell(0), MyMenu.GetMenuCell(1),MyMenu.GetMenuCell(0));

I also had to update the header files for:

//#include "WProgram.h"
#include "Arduino.h"

Any thoughts?  Have you been able to get this to work with Arduino 1.0?

The solution that you made "fixes" the class.
We have updated the class in this article :
To me seems that you have an implementation problem that has nothing to do with the circular class  :(
Anyway the new class can be downloaded from the link given above and works fine with Arduino 1.0 Gui version
A demonstration video is also included
