Dunno if this works for games created in Construct, but i thought i'd post it just in case someone smarter can figure it out.

Interesting, but ...[QUOTE=justifun] ... Dunno if this works for games created in Construct ...[/QUOTE]It doesn't. Construct 2 users are not directly writing JavaScript. Chrome Live Editor could be used to modify the C2 runtime on the fly, but you really don't want to be doing that Velojet2013-02-14 18:29:35

As a teaching tool, would there be a way for students to type javascript code in a textbox accessing the runtime.js functions and test them in realtime on a game?
I am really interested in this and my students seem to like this type of thing. I read the manual entry on realtime.js but am still not sure how this might be done. Thanks

@teacherjon - you could just use the Browser object's 'Execute javascript' action.
