Prompting for Input

Heys guys, I am a complete noob with this, but I would appreciate an answer to a question I can't see a way around;

Is there a way to randomise the Input Prompts for a generator?

I would think not as the "Prompt" command is purely a function and would not work in a table.
I have tried using the following;

MaxReps: 1

Table: MasterPromptOptions

Table: Generator_Example
Set: Prompt = [@PromptOptions]

Table: PromptOptions
Prompt: Direction or Colour {Select an option & press "Go"|Directions|Blank 1|} Select an option & press "Go"
Prompt: Direction or Colour {Select an option & press "Go"|Colours|Blank 2|} Select an option & press "Go"
Prompt: WTF {Blank 3|Blank 4} Blank 3

Obviously this didn't work, as everything else that I tried didn't. Any and all possible solutions gratefully accepted - along with an answer that states "what you are doing is impossible" as at least I can forget that idea and move on to creating what I want from a different angle ... thx


  • Hi Trax, welcome to the forums!

    To your question: sadly, no. Or, rather, after much experimentation, I haven't found a way. Prompts (and Headers, for that matter) seem to be in a whole different realm from the rest of the code, and can't be affected by randomizers.

    Good luck with your project!
  • I'm not 100% sure of what your asking. But if you just want a Random option included with prompts this is what I did.
