Customize quick menu in Xamarin

This tutorial only applies to Xamarin.Android.

QuickMenu is a convenient annotation popup menu that appears when a user long-presses on a blank space or on text contained in a PDFViewCtrl. It extends RelativeLayout and is a child view of PDFViewCtrl.

Quick menu events

A number of events may be raised when a user interacts with the quick menu. For example, events will be raised when the quick menu is shown, dismissed, or when a quick menu item is clicked. .

If your activity is using PdfViewCtrlTabHostFragment2 for viewing PDF files, you can set your listener by calling:

mPdfViewCtrlTabHostFragment.CurrentPdfViewCtrlFragment.QuickMenuClicked += (sender, e) =>
{
    // Handle click event...
}

mPdfViewCtrlTabHostFragment.CurrentPdfViewCtrlFragment.QuickMenuShown += (sender, e) =>
{
    // Called when the quick menu is shown
}

mPdfViewCtrlTabHostFragment.CurrentPdfViewCtrlFragment.QuickMenuDismissed += (sender, e) =>
{
    // Called when the quick menu is dismissed
}

Or you can register the listener using the ToolManager:

mToolManager.QuickMenuClicked += (sender, e) =>
{
    // Handle click event...
}

mToolManager.QuickMenuShown += (sender, e) =>
{
    // Called when the quick menu is shown
}

mToolManager.QuickMenuDismissed += (sender, e) =>
{
    // Called when the quick menu is dismissed
}

Hide quick menu items

If there are tools that you would like to remove from the quick menu, you can hide them by calling ToolManager.DisableToolMode:

mToolManager.DisableToolMode(new ToolManager.ToolMode[] {
    ToolManager.ToolMode.TextSquiggly,
    ToolManager.ToolMode.TextStrikeout
});

Then, when you long-press on text you will see:
