Tomahawk navigationMenuItem tag


This tag is used to provide the menu items and sub items. The label for the item is set using itemLabel attribute and the action which is to perform is specified in action attribute. The icon displayed before the item is set to the icon attribute. Its split attribute is used when we want its sub items. So we have several options to render it differentley.
