It can't be done via a plugin, it will soon be available as an "exporter" (the type of project you export) thanks to the awesomium wrapper.

@shigalov2011 - you can't make OS-level windows in HTML5. You can try to pop up a new web browser window, but then you're at the mercy of the browser's popup blocker. So this is generally not done.

@shigalov2011, to clarify what you are asking: you want a plugin which will allow you to generate a window within the Construct 2 canvas, as opposed to an HTML window. Is that correct?

If so, there is currently no plugin which will do that. I have been working on a project which requires in-game windows which have the same functionality as OS-style windows. A large amount of work is required to combine all of the components of a functional window, and one plugin will probably not be able to do everything required.

I have been building windows for my project using sprites and events, and it has been a fairly complex process.
