I'm fairly new to App Inventor and have just dived in, figuring it out as I went. But now I've come across a problem with Tiny DB tags.
To be straight to the point, my question is: can you use variables as a tag in order to store and retrieve data from a Tiny DB? I've been trying this and I can't get anything to work.
I got to this point because I wanted to be able to store a list in Tiny DB, but couldn't figure it out. (If you've a solution to that, then the problem will be gone) Now I am at the understanding that you can't store data structures in Tiny DB, rather only raw values. (Please, correct me if I'm wrong here) So instead, I decided to store an 'index' value, as I'll call it, in Tiny DB. Then, when I want to store a number of items into Tiny DB as if like a list, I would use the 'index' value as the tag for the new items. This way, I can increment the 'index' every time I add a new item to the Tiny DB 'list'. I've also come to the understanding that you can't use integers as tags, so I've been changing the 'index' to text using a 'join' block (just in case it doesn't handle it like text already). I thought this would work, but it hasn't. Does anyone know a good solution or would care to enlighten me on something I might be (potentially completely) misunderstanding?
The picture is an example of what I am trying to achieve, but not my actual project, since it would take too long to give the context for it.
It is rather general, but it covers everything I am trying to get to work
