Prime 6.0 Options for Mathcad 15 features such as Combo Box, Radio Button

Hi,

 

I recently upgraded from Mathcad v15 to Mathcad Prime 6.0 (work related, not by choice).

 

I have converted my old v15 files to Prime using the tool, but it resulted in a bunch of differences (see attached Conversion Log image).  Most seemed minor editorial but there were a bunch of unsupported calculations which after reviewing seem to be limited to components no supported by Prime: Combo Boxes and Radio Buttons (See attached example image from my v15 file).

 

From searching online and on this forum I have learned that Prime decided not to implement these useful functions for some unknown silly reason.  So what I am hoping to find here is anybody who can help me with some replacement options that do exist in Prime that can provide the same functionality.

Prime features these fine Tables (See "Matrices/Tables" tab). Tables are ONLY for input!

You can do this:

I'm afraid this is it. You'll have to live with it, or run back to Mathcad 15.

Prime 4 file attached.

 

Success!

Thanks @LucMeekes, this was very helpful.  It would be nice to have the simpler options but if I do have to use Prime than I can make it work.

Hi,

 

It is possible to write VB or C# programs to interface in an API with Prime that can mimic what you are after.
