2.0.X | Customization Helper

About

Maybe you've already discovered the weird menu bar in all your Minecraft GUIs.
This is the Customization Helper. It contains everything you need to customize your menus.

Most of the tabs in this bar are focussing on the current menu you see.
You can create layouts for the current menu there, get informations about the menu and more, but the Customization Helper also contains some stuff that's not related to the current menu, like creating and managing custom GUIs.

The Reload Button

The little curved/spinning arrow button on the right side is the reload button.

reload

This button reloads much things that FancyMenu caches, like layout files, the mod settings, panoramas, slideshows and button scripts.

It does not apply changes made to animations.
You need to restart your game after changing or creating animations.

Customizing Menus

The Current Menu tab contains stuff to customize the menu you see.

current-menu

Customization On/Off

The first option in this tab toggles the customization system for the current menu (not for all menus).
By default, the customization system is disabled for all menus and will not show any layouts and customizations you apply to a menu.

To change this, simply switch this option to On by leftclicking it.

customization-on-off

Layouts

This option allows you to create and manage layouts for the current menu.
With layouts, you can completely customize the look and feel of menus.

Advanced

The last option in this tab contains things for advanced users.
You can override the current menu with one of your custom GUIs here.

OVERRIDING A MENU IS NOT RECOMMENDED AND SHOULD ONLY BE DONE IF YOU CAN'T EDIT IT USING A LAYOUT!

Managing Custom GUIs

The Custom GUIs tab contains everything you need to create and manage your custom GUIs.

custom-guis

Well, there's not really much to say about this tab.
You can open custom GUIs with custom buttons. This is the recommended way to use them.
Please be careful when overriding a menu with a custom GUI. This should only be done when you really can't edit the menu using a layout.

Get Informations about Menus

The Tools tab contains useful tools to get informations about the current menu.

Menu Info

This feature will show you the menu identifier for the current menu in the upper-left corner.
This identifier is important when you want to open a menu by using a custom button and other things.

menu-info

NOTE: You can leftclick the menu identifier to copy it to your clipboard.

Button Info

This one, when activated by clicking on it, will show you informations about a vanilla button, when you hover over it. (Doesn't work for custom buttons)

button-info

It's basically a debug tools to check things like the button size and positon without needing to open the Layout Editor.

Other Useful Stuff

The Miscellaneous tab contains everything that doesn't really fit in a category. For now, you can force-close menus with it and open "dead" instances of some menus that you normally can't customize, because they disappear to fast, like the world loading screen.

misc

NOTE: This tab maybe looks different for you, because it doesn't have the same content in all MC versions.
