## \AMClable and \AMCref for questions

How can I refer to one question in the same test/group from another question?

For example: I would like to use these commands in the following manner:

\element{DCQ}{
\begin{question}{Q1}\AMClable{Q1}
The first question goes here.
\begin{choiceshoriz}[o]
\correctchoice{TRUE}
\wrongchoice{FALSE}
\end{choiceshoriz}
\end{question}
}

\element{DCQ}{
\begin{question}{Q2}
Please refer to Question no \AMCref{Q1} on page \AMCpageref{Q1}.

The second question goes here which
\begin{choiceshoriz}[o]
\wrongchoice{TRUE}
\correctchoice{FALSE}
\end{choiceshoriz}
\end{question}
}

You can add the following code at the beginning of the document, and use \AMCqlabel instead of \AMClabel. The new command \AMCqlabel has just been added in revision r1318.

\makeatletter
\newcommand{\AMCqlabel}[1]{\protected@write\@auxout{}{\string\newlabel{\the\AMCid@etud-#1}{\thepage}}}}
\makeatother

It does not work for me. When I replace an \AMClabel with \AMCqlabel, I get:

/Users/akim/src/lrde/cours-ccmp/exams/thl/qcm-2016.tex:66: Argument of \Hy@setref@link has an extra }.

Runaway argument?

Does it ring any bell? I don't have time right now to try to make a small self-contained test, I'm just asking if someone knows what's going on.

Btw, this is still not documented.

I had the problem again, and now I know why: I used colons (:) in my reference name. Colon is most probably special in French, so it must be an active character. However AMClabel is happy with it, contrary to AMCqlabel.

#### RE: \AMClable and \AMCref for questions - Added by Akim Demailleabout 8 years ago

Sorry, ignore my previous message, it still does not work at all, even without any special character.

#### RE: \AMClable and \AMCref for questions - Added by Alexis Bienvenüeabout 8 years ago

Can you post a minimal working source file that shows the problem?

#### RE: \AMClable and \AMCref for questions - Added by Akim Demailleabout 8 years ago

Hi Alexis,

So, once reduced, it shows that this is a clash bw hyperref and amc.

#### RE: \AMClable and \AMCref for questions - Added by Alexis Bienvenüeabout 8 years ago

OK. Do you need hyperref with AMC?

#### RE: \AMClable and \AMCref for questions - Added by Akim Demailleabout 8 years ago

I have this big stack of macros that are used both to generate the lecture notes, the slides, and the exams. If I don't need hyper ref for the exam, but I do for all the rest; it does make my life more complex if I have to have my macros and styles be compatible with not having hyperref.
