Choice Dialog

Top  Previous  Next

The Choose Dialog is necessary to select one value of several alternatives. The action saves the number of chosen alternative (beginning from 1) into a variable. Then it is possible to do actions according to a choice.

If a user rejects a choice (that is, the button Cancel is pressed), the value of the choice is 0.
