Tracing an onscreen line for touch devices

  • Hi everyone;

    my team is making a Japanese language learning app for Android and iOS; and I would like the user to be able to draw a line onscreen to trace out a kanji character. There needs to be a line following the user's finger as he/she traces onscreen - the point being to learn how to write specific kanji characters.

    Here is an example of what I mean in the second to last screenshot on this app:

    play.google.com/store/apps/details

    Is this possible in Construct2? I cant find any documentation on how to do this and am currently stumped. Thank you for any help!

  • I've don simular things

    have a invisible bullet with a very high speed

    set angle toward touch.x & touch.y

    have a 10 by 10 sprite and set position to touch.x and touch.y

    have the bullet speed 0 if overlapping the 10 by 10 sprite

    spawn a circle dot the size you want the line if bullet speed is greater than 0

    this will spawn a dot every tick the bullet is moving making it appear as a line
