Simulate key press?

  • Hello everybody! I have a problem the fact that the C2 not conditional "or". That is, I have a global code that checks whether the user pressed ESC and go back to the previous layout. But I need to insert a button that does this for the iPad type devices. If I had as a condicional "or" was simple but as there has ... I was wondering when you touch the button it simulate pressing the ESC and everything resolved, but the C2 has neither the OR nor an object with keyboard actions .... I do not want to repeat all the conditions. How to solve this?

    I hope you understood my question

    Thanks!

  • Vinians,

    For what it's worth, I just posted a conditional OR plugin here: OR Plugin

    There is also an example geared towards your issue, although it uses a mouse click instead of the touch mechanism.

    I hope this helps.

  • Nice nice! Its a cool plugin but can you make one with more or's ? Or one that we can combine and create more or's expressions. Thanks for reply!

  • Also you can have something like

    Global Variable goPrev = 0
    KeyBoard: On ESC pressed
        -> System: set goPrev to 1
    Touch: On Sprite touched
        -> System: set goPrev to 1
    System: goPrev equal 1
        -> System: go to previous layout
        -> System: set goPrev to 0

    goPrev would work as the "simulation" trigger you were mentionning

    How many ORs would you need in one condition? There's no good way in the editor to add a random number of statements. I could expand the number of OR expressions to whatever you might need.

    Thanks dude! I solved the problem with use of Groups. Thanks a lot.

    Obs. Some ppls talk about Triggers, they are talking about Groups? Im using groups a lot to create someting like a function.

  • No problem. I'm not sure how useful this plug-in is anyway. It's kind of difficult to make it more dynamic.

    Regarding triggers versus groups, I always thought triggers were events that get triggered by some user action, i.e. a mouse click.

    A lot can be done with groups, but if it's functions you're after, have you taken a look at rexrainbow's function plug-in? It's pretty cool.
