Attached is a sample assembly that has this rule in it.
The rule gets the active Positional rep, then gets all of the Positional rep names and adds them to a list, then presents the list to the user and automatically sets the active Positional rep as the default in the list. Then either sets the selected Positional rep active or creates a new one, based on the user input.
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,

sPosRep = InputListBox("Select from the list:", MyArrayList, sActivePosRep, "iLogic", "Positional Reps")
If sPosRep = "*Add a new Positional Rep*" Then
newPosRep = InputBox("Enter a name:", "iLogic", "New Pos Rep_" & iArrayList)
newAngle = InputBox("Enter an Angle:", "iLogic", "5")
'create new pos rep
myAngle = newAngle
'activate the selected pos rep
