Ejecta, input from keyboard?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue May 06, 2014 2:04 am

Hello!


Since I haven't had a chance to try out Ejecta, is there a way to use the mobile keyboard to get input from the user yet?

Also, a bit more off-topic, will we ever see being able to use the DOM plugin file-reader from Pode to be able to upload images from the users phone to a sprite object? Or maybe not the file-reader but some way to allow users to upload an image.


Thanks a lot! :)

Yes, use the Ejecta plugin.

Most DOM features will likely never be supported in Ejecta though.

Thank you for the feedback.

@Ashley, do you think there will ever be a chance where I can access the users phone and allow them to select a photo and upload it into a sprite, since the Ejecta plugin is open source? Since the file-reader plugin will probably never work with Ejecta, since it is a DOM element.

@GameThirsty - probably not - you should aim to make a web app that runs in Safari (and can be added to the home screen to look like an app) as a better workaround if you need DOM features.
