Is there a way of using a comma in a variable within a sentence and not as a separator? I tried “& comma;” and “& #x2c;” so far.
To elaborate: I am storing different sentences in a variable. Some of these sentences use commas. Because commas function as separators, these sentences are split apart. Is there a way to prevent this behaviour for certain commas?
Can you please provide some screenshots of this behaviour and also explain a bit more on what you plan to achieve? I am not sure where the sentences are split apart.
I am using a few variables to store sentences and to display these sentences one after another by using “text value from select many at position”. In some of these sentences, I want to be able to use commas, which at at the moment is not possible as a comma is perceived as a separator and splits the sentence apart.
My solution would involve not using “text value from select many at position” as that is intended for short welcome/goodbye messages that needs to be randomised.
I would take these individual strings (which has these commas) and then make individual messages in the respective micro-dialog. I would then use a decision point to randomise a variable (say ‘$random’) and then use the variable as a condition in each of the messages.
For example, let’s say I have three strings ‘a’, ‘b’ and ‘c’ one of which I need to randomly pick every time a micro dialog is sent. I would save them separately as individual messages. Then I will make a decision point before ‘a’, ‘b’ and ‘c’ which would compute and store ‘$random’ using “calculate value but result is always true” and “floor(random()*3)+1”. Now ‘$random’ variable has 1, 2 or 3 (randomly assigned). I will add rules ‘$random’ ‘calculate value equals’ ‘1’ for message with string ‘a’, ‘$random’ ‘calculate value equals’ ‘2’ for message with string ‘b’ and ‘$random’ ‘calculate value equals’ ‘3’ for message with string ‘c’.
