Dynamic Lists

  • 2 min to read

This options page enables you to customize the templates dynamic data.

Dynamic list is a variable that contains the list of mnemonics and their values.

To use a dynamic list in a template, paste the name of the desired dynamic list variable surrounded with question mark characters (?) to the template. For example, the method declaration template is m?Type?, where Type is the name of the dynamic list variable. This template expands if you type m followed by any mnemonic contained in the dynamic list.

  • The context editor is shown at the bottom of the options page. It enables you to specify the dynamic list context. Click Show Folder Context to show the context editor.
