The Automatic Result Attributes
Pro Version Only

When Asutype evaluates a variable from ASK, CHOOSE, XCHOOSE and TICK, it may create some additional result attributes automatically to help assessing the variable value easier in the subsequent processing of the shortcut. You can refer to a result attribute the same way you refer to a variable, by enclosing its name in {} bracket.

The name of a result attribute is the name of the variable, followed by a dot (.) then followed by the attribute name. For example, after running this hot code:

<LET:sport={CHOOSE} Pick a sport?=baseball|soccer|tennis|swimming>
and picking "swimming" option, Asutype will create these result attributes:
sport.question with the value of Pick a sport? representing the original question

sport.count with the value of 4 representing the four choices of the sport variable

sport.item1 with the value of baseball representing the item #1 of the list of choices

sport.item2 with the value of soccer representing the item #2 of the list of choices

sport.item3 with the value of tennis representing the item #3 of the list of choices

sport.item4 with the value of swimming representing the item #4 of the list of choices

sport.pick with the value of item4 representing the item #4 as the picked option
