Default Multiple Choice


Recommended Posts

I was wondering...I have created several Multiple Choice dialog boxes (Radio Buttons) and would like to set one choice as a default in each. This would eliminate the need for any mouse clicks as the user could simply arrow down to change the choice. Has anyone found a way to do this?


Could you get control of your own dialog box and select it that way?


Any ideas would be much appreciated.


Thanks in advance,

Welcome to the group Michael!


Setting the default choice for a Multiple Choice menu is just a matter of setting the results variable prior to running the menu. For example:


(*) Blue

(*) Red

(*) Yellow


If you wanted to set the default choice to "Red", and if the menu result variable is %T1%, then set %T1% to "Red" prior to calling the menu.


Do the same if you are only returning "A" through "9" instead of the actual text. In this example %T1% should be set to "B" prior to calling the menu.
