The block adds an item onto the end of the specified list, the item containing the given text.
The block can delete the item inputted from the specified list.
The block can delete all the items from the specified list.
The block inserts an item containing the given text into the list, at the given position. All values below the inserted item are passed onto the item beneath them; the last item’s value is placed in a new item at the end of the list.
The block replaces the specified item; in other words, it changes the item’s content to the given text.
The block reports the value of the specified entry in a specified list.
The block reports how many items a list contains.
The block checks if any items in the specified list are equal to the given text—if at least one of them is, the block returns true; if none of them are, it returns false. The item must contain the exact text; for example, “abc” would not work if the item contained “abcde”. This block is case-sensitive.
The block shows the specified list’s Stage monitor.
The block hides the specified list’s Stage monitor.
