The function was changed to:

testdataextract1<-function (testdata) {
something') return (testdata[selectionresult,])

> testdataextract1(testdata)
Select something

1: text test1
2: text test2
3: text test3

Selection: 2
    variablea   variableb variablec
2 text test2 other texty       200

match the selected value from the menu are returned (as below)?
