Since RAGen is no longer in use, there is not an easy way to create a custom menu for your controller. I took the custom menu section from RAGen and converted it into a Java application.

It will generate the code and display it in a window to be pasted into your INO file. You have the option to save the menu to an XML file for easy sharing. You can also load the menu from an XML file.

Here are a couple screenshots to show you what it looks like:

I have it released and ready for use. There is a Windows/Linux version which is just the JAR file that you can download and run. The Mac version is a DMG file. The DMG file just opens up and allows you to run the application or you can install it in your Applications by dragging it into your app folder.

Grab a copy and see what you think. Feedback is always welcome.

I edited the original post but forgot to comment to tell everybody that I released the Menu Generator.

In the original post, there are links to download it. One download for Linux & Windows and another for Mac. The Mac version is just a DMG with the application inside of it. There's not a fancy installer for it. The Linux & Windows version just needs to download the JAR file and run it.

Feedback is always welcome. Enjoy. :ugeek:

Are menus inside menus possible (i.e. a calibration menu for pH, salinity, and water level)?

Also, water level calibration is missing :-P

no, you cannot have nested menus.

i haven't updated it and didn't realize that water level calibration was in the libraries. guess i had better update it.
