A very simple example is here: http://1drv.ms/1QzRcvd
An educational game I have been developing little by little over several months suddenly started exhibiting problems, and I am perplexed as to why. I am using a Text box (form control, set to 'number' input) to accept keyboard input and then copying these numbers to a text object for displaying on screen. Everything displayed and behaved normally until recently.
The problem that I think popped up in the last few days is that the 'text' of the TextBox disappears when the number being entered ends with a "." (decimal point). For example, as the user would type in the decimal value "3.42" the text field disappears as the user enters the decimal point after the three. If I change the Properties/Type to "text" everything works fine, but I need it set to "number" because I want the number pad to pop up for the user, not the keyboard. It appears that C2 is suddenly having a hard time recognizing it as a 'number' when it ends in a "."
I appreciate any and all assistance and really hope to get back on track with my game.
I apologize for wasting anyone's time if I am missing something obvious or overlooked a previous discussion on this matter. I am an educator, not a programmer, but C2 has really given me an exciting avenue to try to reach my students. I'm using this numerical entry for math-based problems in (what I hope is) a fun game for them.
I have the user enter text in the TextBox, which is seen on-screen every tick as it's displayed in a TextObject. When it comes time to evaluate the user's response I copy the number into a global variable which is used in various calculations and compared to a correct value to determine right/wrong.
