For an List dataslot
You can configure the properties of an List dataslot in the respective sections (same sections as that for CHARACTER dataslot) of the Dataslots tab. For information on CHARACTER dataslot properties, see For a CHARACTER dataslot. The only difference is in the Initial Value section, which is described below.
You can use the Initial Value section to specify the initial value of the dataslot.
*Click Add to add a list element to the Value table.
To remove a value from the dataslot, select the value in the Value table and click Remove.
To change the order of the values, select the value in the panel and click Move Up or Move Down to move it up or down a row.
Values in a List dataslot are now read from a <Values> tag. The <Value> tag is compatible with the the <DataValue> tag used in earlier releases is also read.
Note: For more information, see About List Dataslots in the Application Developer’s Guide.
