Do you plan make non-game elements?
Like Tables, Menus, PageControls and other?

Tables = array object
Menus = ? (can be done in events. Check the how do I FAQ there are a few examples)
PageControls ? (check the browser object, it allows to navigate through the pages, also the system action "Go to layout" allows to go from a layout to another).

Is that what you are asking for ?

No. Tables = string grid like a
<table>
<tr>
    <td>laskd;a</td><td>asdas</td>
</tr>
</table>

Ha this is HTML formatting.

Not sure how to make a plugin out of it and use it exactly in C2.

Anyway you have JesseJoh's HTML elements pack in the plugins forum that allows you to use to draw a <div> on top of C2 canvas. Maybe you could then set the table inside of it.

For filtering of strings you already have the tokenat system expression available.

Jessejoh made the HTML plugin, not me.
Also, check the available custom plugins you might find some useful for what you are trying to do.

We don't want to make Construct 2 in to a HTML page editor - a game creator for the canvas element alone is our primary goal. There are lots of other tools for helping you write HTML code, and they're very different to how Construct 2 works!
