  • I'm using Laravel to build a website with Construct 2

    Laravel supplies CSRF tokens when posting forms and I'd like to keep it that way!

    I need a safe way to access the CSRF token from within my construct 2 application so that I can post data via AJAX.

    I need to access the DOM outside of my games environment so that I can access this CSRF token from a hidden form element. If anyone can think of a better, cleaner and safe way of doing this, then that too would be awesome!

    If there's nothing available, perhaps I could make a small plug-in? Would plug-ins allow me to access the DOM

  • I figured it out by making a plugin as mentioned here:

    If anyone comes across a similar problem, let me know and I'll post some instructions <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile">.

    btw, the sdk was plain awesome! So easy to follow. I expected to have to spend days studying but had something whipped up in a couple of hours.

  • I have a similar problem: I want to pass a string to a div outside my game.

    I figure I can do this with the Execute Javascript expression, but I guess the correct way of doing it (putting aside all the problems of accessing stuff outside the c2 canvas) is through a plugin.

    If you have anything to share on how you did the basics, that would mean a lot.


  • When I get the chance, I'll write a simple plugin. It wouldn't be too hard, I should be able to just map some jquery commands like .html() .attr() etc.

    Will probably run into problems accessing elements outside of an iFrame though!

    Cheers, probably should have googled it before making that statement :p

  • Hi, I have the same problem and found this thread and wonder if you can help.

    I have my game on my subdomain, which is then loaded in an iframe on a page on the main domain. I am not sure if this a an issue.

    I am trying to change the display of a section (Id:next) on the page. I am using Browser>Execute Javascript with the code

    "window.parent.document.getElementById('next').style.display = 'block';"

    which does not work.

    How can I make this work?
