Deleting Object Suggestion

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Jul 02, 2014 10:30 am

Hello forumers,

It would be nice to have a message box with a report about how many events/actions/instances got removed from layouts and event sheets after an object deletion from the project view.

It could be made optional in the Construct 2 preferences in case this annoys someone.

It could be made even better and provide an actual list of events / actions with their numbers about to be deleted.

The reason for this is that sometimes I need to completely replace one object type in the event sheets with another ( e.g. replace one analytics plugin with another, or replace a control plugin with a custom one that for example fixes android stock browser double touch event firing ). If after deleting the original object I could see that 0 events/actions got deleted, I'd be certain I didn't miss anything.

Perhaps something similar can be achieved now? I know about the search events feature, but it doesn't highlight anything so you would often miss object references e.g. in formulas.

What do you guys think?

Work on families instead of objects. Then you just simply add and remove object within family and event remain intact.

@megatronx yes, but what about the problems which I described? When I have to replace a global object, e.g. control plugin or an analytics plugin? I can't abstract these with a family.

I think in an event sheet you can press ctrl-a and then right click and select replace object to replace all conditions and actions in the event sheet with another object easily.

@Arima, thanks a lot! : ) But... it only seems to work with sprites. It doesn't list any global objects when you are trying to replace things.
