Dialog choice

A decision block that lets the user select from a list of choices.

The fiber will pause until the user has made a choice, cancelled the dialog or the timeout expired.

If an array is set as choices, then its elements are used as labels. If a dictionary is set, then the values are used as labels. A number or text is used as the label for a single choice. If null, then no choices will be shown.

The sift function can be used to filter the selected choices.

Note! The selected indices/keys output variable is assigned an array even when only a single choice is possible. To get the first or single choice index/key use the subscript operator, e.g.: selected[0] or choices[selected[0]].
