unique returns a new block that you have reassigned to bbl. cl/lines needs
to be repointed to this new block. (I don't know why it works the first
time only, though.) Hopefully this code works:
bbl: [ "a" "b" "c" ]
view layout [
button "Add" bold
[ repend bbl copy t1/text
bbl: sort unique bbl
t1: area 340x280
cl: text-list data bbl
(Note well: this will change with the next /View/VID, where the /data path
will contain the block used by the text-list.)
