Dear community,

I have created two buttons "question1" and "question2"
I have also a variable "exercice"

When I click on button "question1"
variable "exercice" sets value to: choose(1,2,3,etc,24)

so I have one value to find;

What I want to do (but don't have the expression for)

When I click to Button "question2"

variable "exercice" sets value to choose2values(1,2,3,4,etc24)

Is it possible to choose xvalues from () ?

You could use the system condition "repeat"

on button "question2" clicked
repeat 2 times

add to variable "exercice" choose(1,2,3) etc.

Depending on if the variable is a string or a number will get different results, eg if 1 and 3 is chosen in a string variable it will appear as "13", in a value it will add them together 1+3 = 4.

If it's a string variable and you want to keep the numbers separate you can add a token eg, add to variable "exercice" choose(1,2,3)&"," so it will appear as "1,3," in the variable. You can then use the token system expressions later to manipulate them further.

If you're looking for 2 different choices on question 2 you could just use choose twice and store the second result in another variable. Then you can condition out for it to choose until choice 2 /= choice 1 variable.

I want a question with two numbers: ex 1 and 5, with answer that is 1 and 5 (not 6)

So for now, I use 2 variables(1 and 2) when I click on the button question, it picks 2 numbers
and for the answer, I've created another variable3 that is set to (variable1+2) that is compared to the solution text box

Well... that's not very light, but it works !

Btw this is for a solfege piano game
