Features of Menubar Function 2.0

The Menubar Function 2.0 also uses List Function v.2.0 By Kvc for displaying the DropDown list of Menu Items. You can either use the List Function v.1.0 or List function 2.0 in this function as per your need. All you need to do is to replace the List.bat file with the required version of the List Function you want. It is quite fascinating - Isn't it? This flexibility is because of using Portable plugins in the Batch Programming.
Benefits of Creating and Using Plugins in Batch
  • Simple to Use and Understand. (only 4 parameters)
  • Easily allows getting Mouse Hover in CMD console.
  • Adds a lot of GUI in your Programs in only two lines of Code.
  • Flexible enough – for using with the List Function 1.0 or 2.0.
The Function needs you to Use Getinput Plugin by Aacini for taking user input in the Main program. As, Previously we were using Batbox - An Awesome batch Plugin | By Darkbatcher for that purpose. But, Getinput Plugin helps in Taking Both Mouse & Keyboard Input in Batch Programming. And, More over its feature allows to Get MOuse hover too. 

That is the reason - Menubar Function 1.0 Gives Output formatted for the usage with Batbox.exe Plugin. But, As Version 2.0 of Menubar Function is an advance - it gives Output formatted for usage with getinput.exe Plugin. 

Note: Must Check the Code and Method of Using Menubar Function 2.0 in the Test File inside the Project File you'll download from the link in the article.
