The modulus is the remainder after integer division. For instance, 17 % 5 ("seventeen modulo five") is 2 -- five goes into seventeen three times, with two left over.

It was exactly the same way I did it. Only difference is, Construct doesn't have a built in modulos function, so the math for that has to be done manually (which isn't much more at all). I really don't think theres another sensical way to do it.

For those who don't know, Modulos is generally really useful for stuff like rounding numbers -- sort of how the player position in this example is rounded to the nearest screen center. Learn and love it!

It does - the % operator. Znirk's example is a valid expression.
