Thank you for the manual. And as promised I left a review... aka grizzly :roll:
I will use it with existing game... just going to take awhile to move all the data across and work out best structure for it. But already the ability to have a dictionary of sections with arrays of data, and I can delete/add/edit on a whim within the editor... and the search and replace is a absolute winner.
Crossing Fingers, but so far this is going to be an absolute life saver... complex data structures and C2 data Editor is going to be a must with C2 Users, much like spriter and sprites.
You think you can do these things, but you can't, Nemo!
Just keep reading.
Just keep learning.

This really looks extremely useful: editing and managing database stuff for c2 is pretty tedious. I'm looking forward to giving it a try :) !

Updated user manual with a specific example showing the relationship between a DataSet Array in C2 Data Editor and the Data Object Function that gets generated inside your capx when you use the injection feature to export that DataSet Array... this same example has been added to the first post in this thread. The user manual in the application download for those that have purchased will be updated at a later date.

The C2 Data Editor creates tables (and dictionaries) of data for the client side. So you could make a "users" table to do registration / login with it using the Create, Read, Update, and Delete functions supplied with the tool. And then save this table AsJSON in the web store... but it would not be secure. Only a server side database with encrypted data would be really secure.

I am doing something somewhat similar with my game I am building where each user can have their own character and when they create a character they supply a user name and when they come back later to continue their game they go to the user screen and choose which character to continue ... though there is no login.

I purchased the C2 Data Editor yesterday and I am very pleased with it. I think it's an absolute MUST HAVE for eh, well lets say eh everybody...
You can generate C2 code and JSON strings on the fly, making it very easy to integrate (large blocks of) data into C2...
There are also search, edit and misc. functions provided wich you can use in your own projects...
I am very impressed with the current version of the program, I'm sure it will be a great success...
I will submit a five star review at Scirra's Store for sure...

Well done gg!!!

Thanks much for the comments... I use the tool myself and because of that I am always finding new things I want it to do and I add them... then send them out for all of you to use.

For example in the next update there will be the ability to drag and drop rows around to reorder them in the Array Editor window.

Good luck with your apps.
