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:
========
17-Mai-2020:
  chg: recompiled with ggc9
  new: added a "Current Dir:" prefs item to the "Launch Parameters"
       so launched commands have a current dir, before its was undefined
  fix: the "Usage:" line in the written config file wasn't correct (BAR and END
are /S not /K)

02-Feb-2019: v2.4
  new: added "Launch parameters" in the settings, there you can define the
con-window for output,
	   the stacksize and the priority of the launched programs
  new: the search-path for the launched programs is now cloned from workbench,
	   previously it was only c: and current directory

02-Dez-2018:
  chg: the user had to first click inside the MenuEditor's listview to add an
item, because it was disabled, if
       no entry was selected

26-Nov-2018:
  chg: changed the "Open menu hotkey:" label to just "Open menu:", because the
group title already contains "Hotkey:"
  new: added a "Donate money" link to the prefs page

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
  first version
