Just tell us what you exactly want to do. Because, if you want to do an action, the computer has to know, when he have to do that action. On the start of the layout? If you pressed a key..or just allways(every tick).
I'm trying to make a list of actions that I can execute at any given point in an event. This would clear the event sheet from a lot of clutter and make 'programming' in Construct a lot easier for me.
Try out the Function object =] Just have an action "Call Function" in the event that should trigger the dormant one then type in the function name. It will then call another event which is called "On Function [your function name] Called" I think
If need be, I'll try to make a cap to show you later this week (or weekend)
I know what you're trying to say, but I can't find the actions for Call Function and On Function. A screenshot on where I could find this would be practical.
