Define the List Node section and row titles dynamically

Dynamic population of the section and row titles can be done if JSON structure is known at design time. The JSON can be defined by a user or be obtained from an API response. At run-time, the section and row titles will be fetched from JSON used.

Sample JSON

For the given JSON, the values in key "name" will be populated in Section titles and the values in key "items" will be populated in row titles at run-time.
