You can use a plugin like one of Yanfly's that allows you to use \item in a textbox or you can simply dedicate a block of variables (a block to keep these variables organized) and then use \v[x] where x is the variable number you stored the item name in.

For instance
Code:
◆Control Variables:#0031 itemName = "crumpled paper"

Then in a text box
Code:
You trash the \v[31].

I'd use a simple script call for efficiency. Do the choose item event command. Then right after it, do Control Variable on a second variable using: $dataItems[$gameVariables.value(X)].name
where X is the ID of the variable you used in the choose item command.

Then you can use the regular \V[n] escape code on that second variable to display the name of the item you chose.
what's the plugin name?
The Message Core. It doesn't directly do what Lady_JJ suggested, that I can see, you'd have to try to nest them and do \ni[\V[X]]

I've been using MZ so I may be wrong, but I think it does. From Yanfly's website

@sunn-official Did you assign the text "crumpled drawing" to variable 5 before opening the textbox?

You forgot this after the Select Item command:
Do the choose item event command. Then right after it, do Control Variable on a second variable using:
Code:
$dataItems[$gameVariables.value(X)].name
where X is the ID of the variable you used in the choose item command.

So you'll need 2 variables - one for the item id in the Select Item command (let's say that is 5), and one for the item name (let's say that's 6).

Add a new command right after Select Item, and do this:
Code:
Control Variables: 6 (item name) = Script: $dataItems[$gameVariables.value(5)].name

then in your Text command, do \v[6] to show the item name.

If you read what I said right after that, I said you'd have to nest escape codes. Whether you use \ii for the name and icon or \ni for just the name (which I gave as an example), they need you to supply the ID of the item (in the picture you pasted, "x").

The OP doesn't have that, he has it stored in a variable. I didn't say you were wrong, just that the syntax would be slightly more complex - I felt it worth giving the warning as he's clearly inexperienced with the software.

asking this here instead of the thread in question to avoid derailing it, but I'm curious; is there a particular reason you'd include a "Terms of Use" for an RPG Maker game? Like, are there multiplayer features for the game you're working on?

I don't understand people sometime. Walking to work today came across someone walking the opposite way in a nice suit, I politely move to the side into the shrubbery so he doesn't have to get his suit dirty and say "good morning" as he passes me, he turns around glaring daggers and asks "why are you talking to me?" like he's bloody offended by me wishing him a good morning or something. Just, why?
