Is it possible to change which enumerator is used in an export based on a value provided by another export?



enum FighterSubclasses {KNIGHT, BRAWLER, DUELYST}
enum WizardSubclasses {EVOKER, DRUID, NECROMANCER}

var SubclassLookup= [FighterSubclasses, RangerSubclasses, WizardSubclasses]

export (Classes) var Class
export ( SubclassLookup[Class] ) var Subclass <~~~~ This is what I'm hoping to achieve

I get the error constant expression expected, is there a way to make that second export change its dropdown list based on the first?

Unfortunately this is not possible. The data type has to be fixed at compile time (i.e. before any value is assigned to a variable). But you could make your script a tool-script and then check in the setter-method whether the assigned subclass fits the class that was selected and otherwise not accept the change.
