PopUp List Selection Reset
« on: March 13, 2013, 09:52:49 AM »
Hi,

I'm having trouble figuring our how to get the popup list to have no value. I'm using it for a main menu dropdown in a strategy game I'm working on. when i click on it, it starts on a default value, ie. 'New Game'. If I click on new game, nothing happens because it assumes that 'New Game' was already selected and doesn't send off its message to the event receiver. What I've done as a temp work around is have it select 'options' by default however this only allows me to select 'new game' once and after that I have to select a different option before I can return to 'new game'. Is there a way for me to get it to set the menu to null before and after every click?

Thanks

Use a popup menu instead.

What is the difference?

I actually did make this as a popup menu. I guess I just said popup list because that's what the script is called??

Any Ideas?

Popup menu doesn't have a set selection, so you can choose the same option multiple times. Just make sure that the popup's value doesn't equal one of your items. Ie: Popup with text "Menu", and items "1", "2", "3", etc.
