A character displayed next to an item when it's chosen.
Specify a dollar sign followed by the character you want to
use to mark this item if it is chosen. For example,
specifies the check mark symbol. (You can use the constant
to specify the check mark character.)

scroll, you should specify the
every item. You can also use slot this for any item to
specify a height different from other items.
Item frame for string with icon
The item string.
A bitmap frame, as returned from the compile-time function
