listFirst

Synopsis

string listFirst(string stringList)

Returns

Returns first item in stringList.

This function returns the first item in the stringList.

Note: Stringlists are a series of strings stored inside one string. The elements are separated by a semicolon (";"). Each item must be followed by a semicolon, also the last one! The data type is "string", thus it is not an array as used in other scripting languages.
