AllocArexxList System Command

Allocates a list for a list control (scrolling list, pop-up or cycle). Returns the list handle to RESULT.

allocarexxlist (no parameters)

Results:

The handle (identification number) of the new list is returned to RESULT. The handle is required in order to add items to the list, or to set the list for a control.

Notes:

Lists are not part of dialog boxes, so they can be allocated before allocating a dialog box, and can be set to more than one control. After a dialog box has closed, you can continue using the list in other dialog boxes until you unallocate the list.

Warning:

You must always unallocate your list before exiting the script!

Examples:
ARexx:

allocarexxlist listnumber=RESULT allocarexxlist choices=RESULT
