Is there an API which lets me programmatically:

  1. set the default string type (Setup) and
  2. rebuild the string list (Rebuild)


Context menu of the string list

To rebuild the string list: ida_strlist.build_strlist().

I'm not sure if you can set the default type. ida_strlist.get_strlist_options() returns the options, but the return type is const.
