[5e OGL] Invisible Rolls Possible?

Greetings friends, I'm asking this on behalf of my GM. They wanted to know if there was a way for a player to send an invisible roll to the GM, one that they would be unable to see after clicking the roll button. I don't think there's anything that complicated from this sheet but I thought I may as well ask.
As of right now, I don't believe there is a way to do this.  The workaround that I use is for the GM to create a macro that will query the GM to select an attribute to use using the @(selected|ATTRIBUTE_NAME}.  The macro will start with /w gm.  For example an Acrobatics check: /w gm &{template:default} {{name=Acrobatics Check}} {{[[1d20+@{selected|acrobatics_mod}]]}} It starts to get a little tricky when you query which attribute you want to use, however it is completely possible.

Thanks for the share. I'll test it out and see how my GM likes it. It might be a bit too complicated for his tastes, but beggars can't be choosers right?

Another option, system/sheet agnostic, is to use the  Blind Roll API script by  Stephen S.

Note that the Blind API script requires the game to have been created by a currently subscribing Pro subscriber. Here's something you can do: /w gm [@{selected|character_name} Acrobatics Check](!
/w gm **@{selected|character_name}** Acrobatics Check: [[1d20+@{selected|acrobatics_mod}]]) This will whisper a button to the GM, which the GM can then click to whisper the blind roll to them.
