User selects multiple from a list

I'm trying to create a game where the player can select multiple classes each year to add to their course load. Is that possible in Squiffy? Is there any way to list out a bunch of courses and have the player select multiple and then add them to a course list?


Yep, using JS.


You could also do it using passages- depends on how tough you want to make this. You could do something like this.

[[Pick a class]]:

It's time to pick your classes!

[Math]

[Computing]

[[Head to class]](end)

[Math]:
You are now signed up for math. It's pretty tough.

[Computing]:
Maybe you could learn crazy languages here!

[[end]]:

Head to class!

Of course, more code could be added to the passages to remember what you have.


It's been a while, but thought I would add something...

If you are using passages, then you'll want to add in a [@3] or something too if you want to limit how many options they can choose.

For example:

[[Pick classes]]:
	set('classes', [])
Hello student!

Choose three classes to enrol in:

[English]
[Maths]
[Physics]
[Chemistry]
[Computing]

[English]:
	set('classes', get('classes').concat('English'))
You have enrolled in English. It will probably involve poetry and classic literature at least. Which might be enough to make up for the essays.

[Maths]:
	set('classes', get('classes').concat('Maths'))
You have enrolled in Mathematics. The only field that everyone on the planet uses in daily life.

[Physics]:
	set('classes', get('classes').concat('Physics'))
You have enrolled in Physics. Maybe you'll get to cause things to crash into each other.

[Chemistry]:
	set('classes', get('classes').concat('Chemistry'))
You have enrolled in Chemisty. With any luck there'll be explosions.

[Computing]:
	set('classes', get('classes').concat('Computing'))
You have enrolled in Computing. Programming in lots of different languages is fun!

[@3]:
	squiffy.story.go('next')

[[next]]:
<hr>
Your classes have been chosen.  
You are enrolled in {classes}.

You can test the code out in the editor or scratchpad.

I added in some Javascript to remember chosen classes, but you could use the "normal" Squiffy attributes of @set enrolledPhysics and {if enrolledPhysics:You are enrolled in Physics} instead if you don't want to have to deal with crazy javascript stuff.
The only javascript you need is the line in the [@3] passage that sends them to the next section.

So, main points:

  • You don't need to use Javascript except for the squiffy.story.go('section') line.
  • You can use [@3], [@4], etc. to limit the number of options chosen to whatever number you feel like.
