This tutorial should give you a deep understanding of the new AMXX menu system.

If you are having trouble following this tutorial, I suggest you read Pawn Picture Tutorial.

Basic Menu - for interacting within a plugin or having a player select between objects ( such as a weapon menu )
Player Menu - for interacting with a selected player ( such as a kick menu )
Basic Vote Menu - for getting a preference from players ( such as a mapvote menu )
Sub-Menu - for having a menu within a menu ( such as a multilayered admin menu )
Advanced Vote Menu - for getting a more advanced preference ( such as a Galileo's map menu )
Multiple Menus with 1 Handler - for having multiple menus and only using a single menu_handler
Menu Items with Callbacks - for enabling/disabling menu items ( such as a Shop menu that disables items if you don't have enough money )
newmenus.inc - some helpful things from newmenus.inc
End Notes - some tips with the new menus


Basic Menu [top]
Code:
#include <amxmodx>  public plugin_init()  {     //..stuff for your plugin     register_clcmd( "my_awesome_menu","AwesomeMenu" );     //note that we do not need to register the menu anymore, but just a way to get to it  }  //lets make the function that will make the menu  public AwesomeMenu( id )  {     //first we need to make a variable that will hold the menu     new menu = menu_create( "\rLook at this awesome Menu!:", "menu_handler" );     //Note - menu_create     //The first parameter  is what the menu will be titled ( what is at the very top )     //The second parameter is the function that will deal/handle with the menu ( which key was pressed, and what to do )     //Now lets add some things to select from the menu     menu_additem( menu, "\wI'm Selection #1", "", 0 );     menu_additem( menu, "\wI'm Selection #2", "", 0 );     menu_additem( menu, "\wI'm Secret Selection #3", "", ADMIN_ADMIN );     //Note - menu_additem     //The first parameter is which menu we will be adding this item/selection to     //The second parameter is what text will appear on the menu ( Note that it is preceeded with a number of which item it is )     //The third parameter is data that we want to send with this item     //The fourth parameter is which admin flag we want to be able to access this item ( Refer to the admin flags from the amxconst.inc )     //The fifth parameter is the callback for enabling/disabling items, by default we will omit this and use no callback ( default value of -1 ) Refer to the Menu Items with Callbacks section for more information.     //Set a property on the menu     menu_setprop( menu, MPROP_EXIT, MEXIT_ALL );     //Note - menu_setprop     //The first parameter is the menu to modify     //The second parameter is what to modify ( found in amxconst.inc )     //The third parameter is what to modify it to ( in this case, we are adding a option to the menu that will exit the menu. setting it to MEXIT_NEVER will disable this option )     //Additional note - MEXIT_ALL is the default property for MPROP_EXIT, so this is redundant     //Lets display the menu     menu_display( id, menu, 0 );     //Note - menu_display     //The first parameter is which index to show it to ( you cannot show this to everyone at once )     //The second parameter is which menu to show them ( in this case, the one we just made )     //The third parameter is which page to start them on  }  //okay, we showed them the menu, now lets handle it ( looking back at menu_create, we are going to use that function )  public menu_handler( id, menu, item )  {     //Because of the simplicity of this menu, we can switch for which item was pressed     //Note - this is zero-based, so the first item is 0     switch( item )     {         case 0:         {             client_print( id, print_chat, "Hooray! You selected the Awesome 1st Selection" );                         //Note that if we dont want to continue through the function, we can't just end with a return.

Hail Teh Bail!" );         }         case MENU_EXIT:         {             client_print( id, print_chat, "You exited the menu... what a bummer!" );         }     }     //lets finish up this function by destroying the menu with menu_destroy, and a return     menu_destroy( menu );     return PLUGIN_HANDLED;  }

Player Menu [top]
*Note - You should have an understanding of the Basic Menu first.

Here is a generic player menu from ConnorMcLeod that you can use to easily add to your plugin

End Notes: [top]
  • Most of the menu_* natives will throw errors if they are passed an invalid menu. A menu is invalid if it is -1.
  • You can expand on these in many ways, like only have one menu_handler to handle more than 1 menu
  • If you are using a constant menu ( doesn't change at all ) you do not need to create and destroy it each time. It is better to save it as a global.
  • These examples are not completely optimized, but they are for beginners and so they are simplified.
  • List of Colors for menus: ( there are no other colors available )
    • White - \w
    • Yellow - \y
    • Red - \r
    • Grey/Disabled - \d
  • To align text to the right - \R
  • A menu will not show if it does not have any items.
  • Text and blanks can only be added after an item.
  • To hide a menu ( new or old style ) one can do:
    Code:
    show_menu( id, 0, "^n", 1 );
  • One can remove the Next, Back, and Exit buttons to show up to 10 items by using:
    Code:
    menu_setprop( menu, MPROP_PERPAGE, 0 );

Anyway, Adios.

Code:
    switch(key)     {         case 1:{             client_print(id, print_chat, "Hooray! You selected the Awesome 1st Selection")             //note that if we dont want to continue through the function, we can't just end with a return. We want to kill the menu first             menu_destroy(menu)             return PLUGIN_HANDLED         }         case 2:{             client_print(id, print_chat, "OH NO! You selected the Awesome 2nd Selection! BEWARE!")         }         case 3:{ //again i don't have experience with the admin limitations, so i don't know if you need to have a check before this (im assuming you don't though ^_^)             client_print(id, print_chat, "You have selected the Awesome Admin Selection! Hail Teh Bail!")             menu_destroy(menu)             return PLUGIN_HANDLED         }     }

Using two different styles now are we?

The new menu system is very impractical for many many purposes. I think Bail only added it for CSDM, and since no menu items change in CSDM, the fact that the new system is terrible at dynamically adding and removing items make me think personally that this is true.

It's much more powerful than the old system, no doubt. But if you need to change items a lot, then it's just too hard (although still possible) compared to the old system.

This is a decent tutorial but I think saying "I'm bored so I wrote this" really looks bad, and also it is covered elsewhere with a full explanation, whereas here there is just basically a script with small comments.

This goes back to my dynamic rant. As far as I know, you have to delete that menu item each time you want to change the cvar value and then re-add it back.

It's great how I've been totally ignored twice. No matter, I think you'll see quickly that the old menu system is generally more useful.
