Thanks SigurdFireDragon. That works as you say. I'll go add some documentation if I can't find any for this.

I think what you're asking CABD in a way,
by placing a "*" in front of the option to be default

The following is from lines 24-49 in the add-on Random Campaign v0.9.0

message={MENU_IMG_TXT "terrain/flat/road.png" _"Clear"}
message={MENU_IMG_TXT "terrain/fog/fog1.png" _"Fog"}
message="*"+{MENU_IMG_TXT "terrain/void/void.png" _"Shroud"}

when the choice is presented, the 3rd option is highlighted.

Here's a patch so that when you have in WML messages with options to choose from, a default can be specified. e.g. to set a default for the second option:


I've tested and this works with input_text also (not taking focus away from it, but setting still the default button).

Not sure who to assign to.
