  • <img src="" border="0" />

    (I've only put the webstorage thing in as a placeholder, don't try and replicate that part).

    With the System/Create Object action you can create anything that's in your game at runtime then once you've created it you can assign it whatever properties you choose.

    In the above example I created a textbox you could just as easily create text or better still spritefont text it's all the same process System/Create Object.

  • not so easy to explain, if you dont know what is what but

    you need a loop,

    a for loop or repeat,

    repeat 20 times, create txtobject, at 50,50+loopindex*txtobject.height

    and set txtobject.txt to webstorage at key loopindex

    do a search for these things...

  • thanks for your replies guys , but special thanks to bertie Booster who has explained in very precise and with perfect snapshot was not that much hard though but got the proper direction.. once again thanks
