More Information
This plugin produces a simle menu in list format. It does not use a header or footer image
and is perfect for sub-menus. The right-side details indicator for each row (arrow, details, none)
is (arrow, details indicator, blank). There is no left-side icon or image, typical in
plain menu's and other utility screens. The primary purpose of this plugin is to quickly
and easily create a menu while avoiding the complexities introduced by many advanced settings.

The items in the list can individually entered in the control panel or they
may come from a remote file. If you're showing more than a dozen or so menu items it's
usually best to pull them from a remote file.

iOS Project
------------------------
1 Objective-C class (a total of 2 files) are needed.
BT_screen_menuListSimple.m and .h

BT_screen_menuListSimple.m is the main UIViewController that shows the list.
The UITableViewCell that is used for each row is created from one of the buzztouch
core files, BT_cell_menuList.m, .h

Android Project
------------------------
BT_screen_menuListSimple.java is the Activity class that displays the menu. The layout is handled by
screen_menulistsimple.xml for the activity and men_list_rowsimple.xml for each individual row.

JSON Data
------------------------

If you manually enter the menu item data, the JSON data for this item in the BT_config.txt
includes a child items array holding individual BT_menuItem items. Each item produces a row.

{
     "itemId":"1111",
     "itemType":"BT_screen_menuListSimple",
     "navBarTitleText":"My Simple Menu",
     "childItems":[
          {
               "itemId":"menu_1",
               "itemType":"BT_menuItem",
               "titleText":"This is row 1",
               "loadScreenWithItemId":"1234"
          },
          {
               "itemId":"menu_2",
               "itemType":"BT_menuItem",
               "titleText":"This is row two",
               "loadScreenWithItemId":"5678"
          }
     ]
}

If you provide menu item data from a remote file there is no childItems array in the screen
definition in the BT_config.txt file. Instead, the menu items are pulled from a remote file.

{
     "itemId":"1111",
     "itemType":"BT_screen_menuListSimple",
     "navBarTitleText":"My Simple Menu",
     "dataURL":"http://www.domain.com/theMenuItemData.php"
}
     
In this case the menu items would come from a backend script at the dataURL. Loading
the dataURL in your browser would produce output like this....

{
     "childItems":[
          {
               "itemId":"menu_1",
               "itemType":"BT_menuItem",
               "titleText":"This is row 1",
               "loadScreenWithItemId":"1234"
          },
          {
               "itemId":"menu_2",
               "itemType":"BT_menuItem",
               "titleText":"This is row 2",
               "loadScreenWithItemId":"5678"
          },
          {
               "itemId":"menu_3",
               "itemType":"BT_menuItem",
               "titleText":"This is row 3",
               "loadScreenWithItemId":"2948"
          }
     ]
}
