Background grid numbered on x,y???

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Jan 18, 2013 6:14 am

I'm wondering how to create a standard background grid that displays numbers on both the x,y coordinates. I'd like to have a user enter the grid size and then generate a grid automatically. Can this be done in Construct2? If so, are there any examples or places too look? I've gone through this area and found nothing to help.

So a user enters two numbers: 20,20. A gird is generated with the included numbers. Grid below isn't the best representation, but I hope it will help you visualize what I'm trying to do.

      0      5       10   15   20
       ...............................   
       :      :        :       :     :
5     :......:........:.......:.....:
       :      :        :       :     :
10   :......:........:.......:.....:
       :      :        :       :     :
15   :......:........:.......:.....:
       :      :        :       :     :
20   :......:........:.......:.....:

Any help is appreciated and valued.

TIA :-)

Generating grid could be done with a single tiled background with cross texture.

Then you just set the grid height/width based on user input and generate necessary numbers.
