Import:

Create a Menu

The Menu constructor takes one non-optional argument, the title, and one optional argument, an update function that gets called every time the menu is show:

mainMenu = menu.Menu(title,update=updateFunction)

To make a submenu make a property of the main menu another menu:

mainMenu.submenu = menu.Menu(title,update=updateFunction)

Add options to a menu:

options = [{"name":"firstOption","function":firstFunc},
           {"name":"secondOption","function":secondFunc},
           {"name":"thirdOption","function":thirdFunc}]
mainMenu.addOptions(options)

Change the way options are added to a menu:

mainMenu.explicit()
options = [{"name":"firstOption","function":firstFunc},
           {"name":"secondOption","function":secondFunc},
           {"name":"thirdOption","function":thirdFunc}]
mainMenu.addOptions(options)

mainMenu.clearOptions()

mainMenu.implicit()
options = [("firstOption",firstFunc),
           ("secondOption",secondFunc),
           ("thirdOption",thirdFunc)]
mainMenu.addOptions(options)

Display a menu, wait for user input, and call a corresponding function:

mainMenu.open()

###
would look like this

title

1. firstOption
2. secondOption
3. thirdOption

>>>

Change the user input indicator:

mainMenu.indicator(":")
mainMenu.indicator(">>>")
mainMenu.indicator(">")
