Did you ever dream of starting any application from any (public) screen without
needing to switch back to the Ambient screen to run it or remember its hotkey?

Now you can!

This screenbar module opens a popup menu if you click on the AppLauncher icon 
in your screenbar, so you can select the application you want to start!

Better yet, you are able to configure the menu by editing a simple text file
that is located in SYS:Data/Screenbar/AppLauncher/config.

Easier still is to use the in-built menu editor to edit the menu from a nice
MUI GUI!

The default config has all standard MorphOS Applications, Games, Utilities and
Tools!

With a hotkey to open the menu via keyboard, default - ctrl help (User editable)

INSTALLATION:
=============
Just copy the contents from the "SYS" folder to your SYS: partition manually,
or execute/double-click the "Install" file to do this.
Your custom config file won't be overwritten anymore!

Then via a right-click on the top-right screen depth-gadget, select
Modules>Rescan or reboot.


HISTORY:
========
31-Oct-2018: v2.3
  new: added a new interactive installation/update script   chg: now the
standard config file is named "StandardConfig", which will be loaded        if
no file named "Config" was found, this was done to not overwrite your custom
config 	   when updating to a new version   chg: addded the Games folder to the
standard config   new: if you add a new item, and then select the command from
the popup file requester,        the Name field is automatically set to the
filename

26-Oct-2018:   new: added two checkmarks in the settings for not adding the
"Recent Apps" and "MenuEditor..."        menuitems        [25-Oct-18, suggested
by Christoph Poelzl]

20-Oct-2018: v2.2
  fix: the wrong image (11 instead of 14) was taken for the sbar image   new:
there is now a hotkey to open the menu via keyboard (default is ctrl help)
  fix: adding an item to the root then saving the config, leads to an endless
loop adding lots of spaces        to the config file        [16-Oct-18, reported
by sprocki]

15-Oct-2018:
  fix: renaming an menu entry shows random text in the command column   chg: now
a new item has "SYS:NewCommand" as its initial command instead of "<New
command>" to have an        initial drawer in the file requester

12-Oct-2018: v2.1
  fix: The sbar image is now re-coloured using the screenbar's TextPen instead
of using a negative of the image        [10-Oct-18, reported by emeck]

  fix: Fixed a hit if you open the MenuEditor for the first time
       [08-Oct-18, reported by jPV]

09-Oct-2018:
  fix: The "Do you really want to save" req, always opened on the Ambient
screen, no matter on which        screen you opened the MenuEditor 	  
[09-Oct-18, reported by NewSense]   chg: The requester now appears in the center
of the MenuEditor window   chg: If the MenuEditor window is open and you select
the menuitem again, it will be closed, but        if you opened it on a
different screen, it will be reopened on the current screen

08-Oct-2018: v2.0
  - added a full blown menu editor to edit the menu including drag and drop
support to add apps!

28-Sep-2018:
  - new screenbar image by André Siegel   - the screenbar image is now
automatically converted to negative, if the background is dark

24-Sep-2018: v1.1
  added a "Recent Apps" menu, with the last 10 launched apps

20-Sep-2018: v1.0
