New here! Need help? Yes! I'm asking about making drop down menu

  • Hello everyone, i just using construct for my school homework. Can anyone help me show the way how a cursor can bring up a drop down menu when touching a button?

    Please help me.. I have a deadline :'')

  • you can use form controls, the dropdown is the object called "List".

    but to make one with custom art and fonts is a lot more difficult.

  • An easy (but not very good looking) solution is to put the dropdown menu on an invisible layer. When the button is clicked, make that layer visible.

  • Just use fade and set it to different times.

    Click a button and first menu line fades in in 0.5 seconds, second line in 0.75, third in one second and so on.

    Obviously set opacity to 0 at the start of layout

  • BadMario I like that idea! however I think you would need a state for each item - that tells whether it is already in its fading state so it doesn't restart fade midway and look awkward.

  • Hm.. okok.. Yesterday I was learning about some codes used in construct. I'm starting to understand. I will try any kind of ways. Thank you for your suggestions.

  • Try Construct 3

    Just checking first and last item's opacity should do it.

    Nothing happens between a click on menu button and last drop down item's opacity being at 100

    And the other way around click does nothing until the top item is at opacity 0

  • Thank you for your information!
