Welcome @33_Zeke_Yu

Here are three ways to create a App Inventor List of members of a class. There are many other ways depending on where the class information is stored.

All three methods create the same class List and display the List in a ListView component.

The Button1 example List is created by using Blocks.
The Button 2 example is by using a Text Block and creating a csv file and converting that csv to a List using the list from csv row Block.
The Button 3 example loads a text File that contains the student names. The names are stored as a csv of the names. Place the text file in the Media and the File component will read it. You can create your own File in a text editor.

Here is an example class text file you can store in Media and retrieve with the File component.
MyClassList.txt (35 Bytes)

What you do in your app depends on where you create your list and whether you need to be able to manipulate your List (see Sajal's advice regarding Lists).

What have you tried?

Does this information help?

Thanks for your help!:pray:t2::pray:t2:
