Haha, when it comes to lazy the dictionary says "Look up Drugwash". :lol:
Don't worry, I was just teasing you. Everything comes in due time. ;)

I'm sure I "could" do better.... but I'm lazy. I will look into making it so that the menu items can be editable (I honestly threw this together in a couple hours and didn't really think about ease of use or anything. I just wanted it to work)

C'mon, you can do better than that! ;) Those hotkeys aren't even intuitive or mentioned directly in the interface. If anybody else is like me they'll stay away from the Help button, because lately that thing usually opens the default browser sending the user to some obscure web page, which I'm trying to avoid since that browser takes 2-3 minutes to start and takes up 80% of the RAM and 50% of the swap (page file) without even opening a page. Your script doesn't do that but better safe than sorry.

TreeView labels should be natively editable by either hitting F2 or by two repeated clicks on the labels. Easier than moving up/down from item to Edit button.
Each non-node item needs a label to go to (some may work with labels identical to item name, but that's not always the case) and the user may want to set those labels immediately. Setting hotkeys for items may be optional but still nice to have in the GUI.

Well, I'm just offering feedback and ideas. If you want to check out an AHK 1.1-compatible version of SmartGui containing the menu editing features, get v4.4.0.7 (SmartGuiXP4407_src.7z) from here and look in mod\mod_MenuEditor.ahk. Old syntax, but it works. ;)

The Show Menu button is enabled by default, which makes the script throw an error when clicked without any item being added to the menu. Small details but they add up to first impression. ;)

No drag drop but ALT+Left/Right/Up/Down

Thanks, maestrith.
My mistake. I was trying to run it with AHK U64, where the colors don't work (although otherwise it works).
With AHK U32 it runs very nicely indeed!

If you wouldn't mind, can you explain how to change colors? There is provision for it in the script, I think, but I don't see how to actually perform it from the GUI.

There are 2 Buttons within the Color GroupBox.
Current will work with the menu that is selected in the TreeView above and Root will work with the Parent Menu item.
These colors will work only with that entire menu. I do not believe there is a way to change individual Menu Item colors.

On a request from Jason Davis on YouTube I decided to throw this back together. A while back before the great data wipe, I had a small script that helped you create Menus. I threw together a quick script that works a lot like the old one.
