    Sorry for another stupid question I am still new to this.

    When coding, what do I use to make a choice/options box. Like in an event when you use "Show Choices"? Also, how do I call a common event from a script.

    Thanks

      Look up textbox commands in the wiki, I believe there is something like /ch that spawns a dialog box for those.

        As jim42 said, if you're evening, then you can either use the standard choices event command or /ch for more than 4 options.

        If you're scripting, then you can probably use this:

        Code:
        command=Kernel.pbMessage(_INTL("Make your choice."),[_INTL("Option 1"),_INTL("Option 2"),_INTL("Option 3")],0)
        Choosing Option 1 returns the number 0, Option 2 returns the number 1, etc.

        The red number is the "choice if cancelled" value (default 0 which means can't cancel). -1 means it will return -1 if cancelled, 1 means it will return 0 ("Option 1"), 2 means it will return 1 ("Option 2"), etc.

        There are a couple more parameters for Kernel.pbMessage, which are in order: text skin for the message box, and default command (0=Option 1, 1=Option 2, etc.).

            If you want nearly every single choice box in the game to be on the left rather than the right, then go to PokemonMessages line 914 and change the red part to something obvious:

            Code:
            pbPositionNearMsgWindow(cmdwindow,msgwindow,:right)
            This doesn't apply to some screens, i.e. the ones that have their own def pbShowCommands like the Bag and the party screen. It's up to you to decide whether it's worth it. I couldn't list which choice boxes would be affected, because there are several ways of calling the scripts which the above change would affect.

            Otherwise, there's no way to change its position.
