		data = "Data";														//Data, see menuSetData, menuData. String only. If set in Eden Editor it means that the functionality is handle in engine
		default = "true";													//Sets the default state of the entry. Needs type property to be defined
		opensNewWindow = 1;													//... is added to the action, indicating that a new window will be opened. In this example, displayed text would be "New..."
		picture = "\a3\3DEN\Data\Displays\Display3DEN\ToolBar\new_ca.paa";	//Picture displayed to the left
		shortcuts[] = {"512 + 0x31"};										//Shortcut that will automatically execute attached action

Default Classes

Arma 3
AddOns: Classes need to be initialised first with class SomeClass;
Missions: Since Arma 3 v2.02 one can use import SomeClass; to initialise a class. In older versions, use "Default" call BIS_fnc_exportGUIBaseClasses; and paste the result into the description.ext.
