List Viewer Help

beginner

#1

When using the list viewer, am I able to select a list item through the phone or should I use buttons for that?

I want to make a screen show multiple names and when you tap on a name it sets that name to variable

yes

Check out the Thunkable YouTube channel, there are lots of great videos for getting started:

A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor’s Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook http://www.appinventor.org/book2 … the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book ‘teaches’ users how to program with AI2 blocks.
There is a free programming course here http://www.appinventor.org/content/CourseInABox/Intro and the aia files for the projects in the book are here: http://www.appinventor.org/bookFiles
How to do a lot of basic things with App Inventor are described here: http://www.appinventor.org/content/howDoYou/eventHandling .

Also do the tutorials http://appinventor.mit.edu/explore/ai2/tutorials.html to learn the basics of App Inventor, then try something and follow the Top 5 Tips: How to learn App Inventor

Thank you for the response but i am using thunkable, not app inventor!

Is there a tutorial specifically on how to make lists items selectable on thunkable?
