Get Index Of List Item


Description

With this action you can recover the index position of an item within the given list. You supply the variable that stores the list index (as returned by the action Create List) and the value you want to find the index position of within the list, as well as a target variable to store the returned index position for the item (which can be flagged as a temporary local variable to be used until the end of the script or event). Note that if the value you are looking for does not exist within the list, then there will be no list index position to return, and so the return value will be -1.
