Default using #choice

I'm not sure how to implement the directive. I wanted to give the user to have a choice between items, but I'm missing the way to allow the user to input the response.

Default Re: using #choice

Maybe I'm being extra dense today, but I'm not sure I understand the question. The items you specify are presented to the user by GCA, and the one they select is placed into the %choice% variable in the trait, before it's added to the character.

Does that help?

The wiki entry might be of use:

I'm also being dense. I was looking for an example. I haven't found one in the data files.

Ah, okay. I think Eric always uses #ChoiceList, which has more features and options. #Choice is very simple, and doesn't offer any features beyond "choose one of these things". It basically looks like this:

Swears oddly (%choice%), -1, x(#Choice("Fracking", "Frelling", "Gorram"))

The user would get a Choose Items dialog that asks them to pick one of the items listed. It's the same dialog #ChoiceList pops up, but without the ability to specify the various text prompts. And it will always be "Want 1". The user checks the box for their selection, clicks OK, and GCA will remove the x() tag contents, and leave their selected option in place of %choice%, in this case, perhaps leaving a quirk of "Swears oddly (Gorram)" on the character.

Armin, that one example made #Choice very clear. Any chance you could add the example to the wiki?

That helps. What I want to do is add the choice to the list. unfortunately, it goes into an infinite loop.
Never mind. Fixed it.
