Welcome to Rebol and View!!
There are inconsistencies between the various styles and their available
fields. It is confusing at first.
number: chs/data ;; dat holds the text of the selected item
You can also write:
chs: choice "one" "two" "three" [print value]
Value has a local meaning inside the choice action factet: it means the value
of the item selected.
Also of use is:
number: chs/texts ;; a block of the (three) choice texts.
And do this to take a look around the other internal fields.
first chs ;; see all the available fields
chs/text ;; etc -- explore what's in each field.
