Is there any way to add words to a string to call a different variable?

I have an array of strings that are randomly selected,. and I want it to add “():” to it for example:

if it chooses ‘Run’ from the array, I want it to run the Run(): function. How I’m doing it right now is

	if state == 'Run':
if state == 'Attack':

But I want a way to not fill my code with a lot of this ‘if’ statements.

You can append to a string like this:

var string = "Run"
string = string + "()"  # or shorter: string += "()"

However, for your specific problem, use call:

var methods = ["Run", "Attack"]
var random_method = methods[randi() % methods.size]

If the method takes arguments, use callv instead.
