I want to set an array with text then iterate through it - all the tutorials and posts I'm seeing about arrays are over my head or off topic. I know I can do this manually with a long slew of events but I'd rather do this with an array and an expression. I just don't know where or how.
for example - at 5 seconds:
etc - thanks!
You can use TokenAt() to retrieve part of a string so long as there is a delimiter.
For example, if you have a string "M1,M2,M3"
then tokenat(string,2,",") will give you "M2"

Yeah tokenat definitely.
With array it's a pain 'cause you have to set each lines with one action
Array: set value at (0) to "good start"
Array: set value at (1) to "keep going"
With tokenat you just do a
Global text dialog = ""
System: Start of layout
-> Set dialog to [insert your tokenized text]
And then call each token as Tokensom (hehe) said
My little advide :
Build your string with newline as separator
dialog = "good start
And then you can access each of them with tokenat(dialog,[index],newline)
