Hi,

I finally got to a point where I think that wxFlatMenu can be released as beta version (under wxWindows license ofc):

- Why did I created it at the first place?
- Well, I am simply sick of the normal menus... I wanted something unique for my application not the regular stuff!

So what does it include:

Everything that regular menu bar has except (two known missing functionalities that will be completed ASAP):
- No tooltips over toolbar items
- No scrolling is available if the menu height is greater than the screen height

I added a toolbar support for the menu bar, so one can easily add a toolbar to the menubar (not floating toolbars, as I think this is useless)

Some nice features that it has:
- Allows user to specify grey bitmap
- If no grey bitmap is provided, it generate one from the existing bitmap
- Hidden toolbar items / menu bar items - will appear in a small popmenu to the right if they are hidden
- Embedded customize dialog (with new a Notebook control - wxLabelBook, which can be used separatly)
- 4 different colour schemes for the menu bar (more can easily added)
- highly consfigurable

Source file (Linux makefile, VS7.1 sln):

For the lazy people among us, here is a precompiled binary for win XP:

Hope you enjoy it, and remember it is beta, so bugs will probably exists
(in fact they will always exist!)

Frankly this looks even better than wxCoolBar on Windows, and I'm delighted it runs on Linux. This will eliminate a lot of ugly #ifdefs and workarounds in my source.

I can't wait to add this to my project!

Thanks!

Make sure you use the source files from the SVN (link is in my signature) and not the link provided here, since fixed many little bugs.
