issues with a yes no command
here is my alias

#ALIAS startpatrol {
#T+ patrolling
#T+ plants
#yesno "what area are you patroling?" {*West:#t+ west} {East:#t+ east}
i am getting an error at #yesno "what area are you patroling?" {*West:#<- syntax error but i dont understand why as i have see it done this way on the forum and in the help file
sample from help
#YESNO "Where to you want to go today?" {Temple:.temple} {Guild:.guild} {*Microsoft:#URL}

Works fine on my end, but I am running windows 10.

Oh, you meant zMUD (this is the CMUD forum.)
It was never intended to run on more modern Operating Systems, there is no guarantee of compatibility.

According to the (VERY sparse) information in the ZMUD manual on this command, yesno seems to work differently for ZMUD than CMUD. In the ZMUD manual, it only states that a dialog box is presented and a true or false value generated depending on the box selected. So it appears that you can't provide labels for your buttons in zmud, and are limited to just yes and no for your options - this also means that you can't have three possible answers as you can in CMUD.
