Animation name selectable.

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Apr 05, 2013 1:08 pm

I would like to suggest this feature:

- Animation name selectable;


Expected Result:

- When on the event page, while creating a new action to set/change/reset an animation, you're able to select the instance and the name of the animation on a contest menu or write the name by yourself;


How it work now:

- You need to write the name inside the commas, and sometimes it's not productive;


Things to avoid:

- It's very important to keep the "write the name" system too, because sometimes is necessary to make complex formulation inside the text field instead of selecting an animation name, like when you want auto increase a name with a sequential number: "animation" & instance.variable.

It can be extended to layer names, layout names, etc =]

One of the best features of C2 is integrate the names, and now, as it is, is awesome, but with these adds, would be outstand!

It would honestly be a helpful option for all items that may already have a defined list. A combo box with fill-in and dropdown select would be useful in many places in Construct 2.
