Hi everyone !
I'm trying to build an interface for a lexical database of Mandarin. Basically, I have huge text files with data separated by tabs. I use the rex_csv plug in to read them in C2 and I built the interface to make queries on this database.
(rex_csv plugin: c2rexplugins.weebly.com/rex_csv.html )
The interface allows you to search in two different ways:
1. Search for info by words: you type in words, and if it is found in the database, you get all the data concerning those words.
2. Search for words by info: you pick all the criteria you need and you get all the words in the database that match those criteria.
Once you've done your query, you can download a file with all the data you need (you can pick what data shows up in the file).
So I made this .capx. It's a draft, but everything works as it should. It's better than long explanations:
In this draft, the database I use is a very small text file (TESTV3.txt in the .capx). In short, it's made of 6 rows (i.e. 6 words) with 5 columns (5 different pieces of informations for each).
I think I have been too optimistic on the power of Construct 2. Maybe it can not deal with so much data? If so, do you have any recommandation on what tools I should use to get my interface working ?
