Hello everyone!
I'd like to know how he put a web page within a program designed to Construct? Like this:


(This figure was made into an image editor)

If anyone knows, please tell me step by step how to do? Thanks! ^ ^
Excuse my English because I speak only Portuguese and had to go to the translator. (:

Att,
Nuse

Right now, you can't. Maybe it'll be possible in the future. Or you could pay someone to make a plugin :D

Here is a thought that might get me laughed at... but, nothing would really stop you from making something in Construct, taking a screenshot at runtime, cropping it in another program like GIMP or Photoshop (similar to what you did in your initial post), and then uploading the picture file. From there you could add links on top of the pages you uploaded while inside the webpage uploader console (most hosts have them). In reality, all a webpage is is a visual with clickable links to take you from page to page.

Having said all of that, if creating websites from scratch with a strong code base is the goal, then there are programs specifically designed for that which I think would be much better suited for building a full-fledged website.

I don't think that's what he was asking, he wanted to know how to display a webpage in a game or app, which maybe the http object does, but I've never used it, nor do I know how...i think it's mainly for formatted text. could be wrong though. also, this belongs in help/tech support

The HTTP object is for making requests, for instance to post highscores. The HTML object is to display HTML formatted text, but it doesn't work with images or CSS or javascript or really anything other than bold, italics, underline, colour, etc so it's no use for displaying a webpage.

Oh. I don't know why I got the impression that he was asking about making webpages.

Hmmm... I've also had this idea of taking a screenshot of a webpage and displaying it on a game once but had to remove it due to other reasons. Now that i have free time, let me see if I can do it in Construct.

I shall post my findings here.
