How do I make a text search-and-display app?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Sep 28, 2014 9:53 pm

I could easily do this in Construct Classic, but I'm not certain if C2 has all the extensions. I want to do something basic like this:

- Use .ini files to manage text.

- Have a search box that can search the text by keywords or by an ID number attached to a block of text inside the .ini file

- Have a scrollable results box

- Have a popup box or new page that displays a clicked result

Is this do-able in C2?

Anyone? Would I be better off just writing this in C#?

Yes its possible, but array would be better...

Saving via .ini would require you to put a work on newline to search via newline, it will end up being a nightmare.
Array would better suit it, you can attach more info, id, etc.

You will need to use functions and pass data via param...

In fact, check in the store, This might help you... it even has built in functions to search all the data.
It is a bit pricey, but it will probably say you that much in time.
Have a look at the video and manual, and see if it might be a fit for you.
You think you can do these things, but you can't, Nemo!
Just keep reading.
Just keep learning.
