Families - Instance Variable Events - Boolean not listed

  • Hi guys. I'm a Construct 2 noob (with a paid licence) but I have carefully read your notes on bug reporting and followed the instructions fully. Thanks for all your great work.

    Problem Description

    I set up a family with three instance variables: 1 Boolean, 1 Number and 1 Text. Then I add an event based on this family and choose Compare instance variable. A window appears titled "Parameters for Family1: Compare instance variable" and the first drop down box lets me choose an instance variable. The options only include the Number and Text variables but NOT the Boolean.

    Attach a Capx

    Simple Capx uploaded containing JUST this problem

    Description of Capx

    Layout 1: Contains one Sprite object which has been added to "Family1"

    Event sheet 1: Contains one event based on comparing instance variables for Family1

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    • Step 1 Open Capx
    • Step 2 Go to Event sheet 1
    • Step 3 Double click on the (only) event
    • Step 4 Click the first drop down list (Instance variable)
    • Step 5 Notice that the list only contains the Number and Text options, but NOT the Boolean
    • Step 6 On Project bar, click on Family1 and look in the Properties bar to confirm that all three instance variables are listed for the family (i.e. not just for the single object)

    Observed Result

    The Boolean instance variable is not listed as an option

    Expected Result

    I expected to see all three Family1 instance variables listed: Boolean, Number and Text

  • There's a separate condition for booleans. "Compare instance variable" is for text and numbers and "Is boolean instance variable set" for booleans.

  • Thanks ramones - I should have seen that!

  • Ashley Thanks, I wasn't sure if that was something I could just do by myself.
