Dynamic menu choices from array/list [SOLVED]

Hello!

I wonder if it's possible to dynamically create menu choices from array in RenPy? Let's say you have 100 skills in the game, and player can use 1-5 of them (like in any rpg). Is it possible to display current skillset as a menu choices and remember the one that player picked? I wrote the following code, obviously it doesn't work:

Code: Select all

python:
        menu_items = []
        for item in player.skills:
            menu_items.append(skillsList[item].name)
        choice = menu(menu_items)
        for i in Skill.name:
            if Skill.name == choice:    
                chosen_skill = choice
    #CalculateDamage(player, enemy, chosen_skill)	

Edit: correct code is as follow:

Code: Select all

menu_items = []
        for item in player.skills:
            menu_items.append(skillsList[item].name)
        choice = renpy.display_menu([(skill, skill) for skill in menu_items])

:-))) Instead of calling a menu call a custom screen with bunch of buttons that will let player to choose skills and all.

The question is how to make these buttons dynamically from the array.
Never use screens before. :?

Mmm, try something like

Code: Select all

screen my_scr():
    vbox:
        align (0.5, 0.5)
        for item in player.skills:
            var = skillsList[item].name
            textbutton "[var]" action Return(var)

label start:
    "..."
    call screen my_scr
    $ res = _return
    "[res]"
    "?"
