Text in lists and selection of specific text strings

Hi,

I have created a script which allows me to set the street profile based on the type of surface and it’s width. There are two things that I would like to improve, these are marked by red groups in the attached script.

I am not sure whether I prefer to type out the ground floor definition by name or by number. My script requires the numbers to work with, but I would atleast like to see the names displayed alongside their width values (so the text conversion could work both ways). Is there a way to compress the replace text boxed into just one component? Basically, the conversion should be in the way it is defined by the white panels.

Additionally, I would prefer to click the value list checkbox to select all surfaces that are of a certain type (set to a green colour). I currently set a value cycle, which allows me to select just one type, but can this somehow be changed to the value list checkbox?

Something like this is what you are after?

Here is a slightly different solution that @HS_Kim solution:

Thanks @HS_Kim and @Mahdiyar, I’ll be using pieces of both scripts to get the result I was looking for!

One more question: how do I go the other way around: from numerical input (0-4) to text name output (Pavement - Pond)? I would then use this as visual control for the width input in another panel.

E: I was about to post: Why isn’t this working the way I expected it to? — but then I saw the result I wanted in the screenshot. So never mind.

Is there a solution to bug-proofing the script in case of discontinuity of data? I have specified 10 street types, for which some are not used as inputs for this specific case (but they will be for other locations).
The problem I am running into is that the branches are selected by the value list, however, the indices no longer match up with the value list output.
