A pie menu
is a user interface
element that the Second Life client
displays when right-clicking any in-world object
, or the ground
. It's like a menu, but pie-shaped.
The text of two of the pie menu's items can be modified: the "Sit" and "Touch" menu items, using llSetSitText
Pie menus are a very good user interface concept
. Once the location of the different buttons is learned, a pie menu can be accessed very quickly, and without any reading necessary. Detractors contend that the time needed to learn the location of each function is lengthened by what is percieved to be a non-linear list. The Lindens
are clearly proponents of pie menus.
