"StringFromObject" DesignScript implementation

Hi Community, just want to ask a simple question.
I’m trying to convert a list of numbers to a list of strings, instead of using a node (StringFromObject) I would like to call the same function in DesignScript, to keep everything in a single code block.
The more similar thing I have found is the “ToString()” command, but it acts like the “StringFromArray” node, returing a string with its curly brackets etc.

Is there a way to avoid this ugly lacing I have done in the attached image?

thank you all!

Try this:

Put the number in parentheses and then use a + and open then close quotes.

(Numbers)+""

In your case

marcs = (1…List.Count(Elem))+""

Thank you Jacob, it works!
I didn’t know this feature existed.
Is it documented anywhere?

Thank you again

Not sure. I read it in the forum once I think from a post @Kulkul made.

Hi @JacobSmall / @Miguel_Salvador1
