We would like to have a tool that enables students in a course to select one seminar (or exam etc) event from a few numbers of equal seminars provided.
This would require the teacher to set a limit for each event, i e number of seats, so that when the limit is reached, the next student need to select another event.
While this requirement could be solved also in other modules (appointment or attendance probably), I tried to hack a little in the choice module.
Since I am brand new to this, I am not sure of the procedure to follow, but I post my attempt here for anyone to test it. Be aware that I added some fields in the MySQL choice table, but I did not add code for other DB.
To use the new "limit" feature you need to set a limit for the choices. You may also want to turn on the "Allow update" parameter to allow students to change their choice (within the limits of course..).
I included the choice english language file in the zip, should of course be moved to the lang/en folder.
And, consider it a beta...
