The List Global Variable
Just like the Text global variable, the List global variable as so many applications. Many of my tutorials in other sections may also use the list global. Videos are sorted oldest to newest.
- The List Global Variable - Like the text global variable, the list global variable can be used to trigger animations with buttons.
- Scroll Through Events - Use the list global variable to scroll through upcoming events.
- Extracting Colors Using the List Global Variable - Yet another application of the list global variable. Pull colors from your background to add to your shapes, text, and other items on your wallpaper.
- Show and Scroll Through Sets of Upcoming Events - This is a follow up to the video linked above, but this allows you to see more than one event at a time and you can cycle to the next set of upcoming events.
- Changing Colors Every "x" Seconds - You can change many other things every "x" seconds too. I have another video on this page discussing that topic.
- Extract Colors to Part of a Text Item - If you want different extracts for certain parts of a text item, check this out.
- RSS Widgets - This is the "new" way I kode my RSS feeds. Much easier to use the list global, in conjunction with the text global variable to achieve pretty much the same thing. However, these changes in how I use globals also makes it much easier to add new topics with minimal kode change. Even if you are not interest in RSS feeds or know about RSS feeds, you may learn a thing or two here with how I "link" globals together.
- Google RSS Images Correctly Synced - This requires you to pull the RSS information directly from the xml rss file instead of using the KLWP functions for RSS.
- New York Times RSS - NO XML parsing here. KLWP handles the NYT rss feeds quite nicely. Add even more topics and get the descriptions from all articles using this tutorial. Note: The NYT limits how many times you can read the FULL article (unless you subscribe and/or pay). However, the RSS is not limited.
- Changing Backgrounds Quickly - You can toggle various backgrounds without having to open the Advanced Editor every time by using the List Global to cycle through them.
- Changing Colors Quickly - Using a very similar technique to toggling backgrounds "on the fly", we can toggle colors on the fly as well.
- Referencing to the Index of Your List Items - We talk about colors and what not, but I hope you learn a little about the indexing of the items in your list global.
