Help on texts and lists needed

  • Greetings.

    I have two questions:

    1) Texts. I need some kind of logging in my rpg, but default text plugin has no scrolling (as far as i see). Is there any way to create, keep updated and show log file with vertical scrolling?

    2) Lists. Player`s inventory is a default list plugin (little bit mad, yeah). Now i have a problem with long names - they doesn`t fit list box.

    Looks like "| A very strange stone with scratches on the surface and some carv|".

    I thought problem can be solved with 'white-space: nowrap;' in custom CSS, but no, nothing happens. So, what can i do to prevent it? Can items in list have 2 or 3 rows of text?

    And: can i set an external css file for list?

    Thanks a lot for your help, your suggestions, and your patience while my english is suddenly weak this time.

  • For number one, did you mean like this?

    dropbox.com/s/o6jiarjxuf70eg4/HUD%20Control.capx

    For do like that..

    1] Create a new layer, give the layer name(optional), and click that new layer.

    For picture: bit.ly/HowDoI1

    2]After that, create new text on that layer.

    3]And then, click that layer again, and change the parallax setting (in the left pane side)

    For picture: bit.ly/HowDoI2

    For number two, sorry IDK...

    Sorry for my bad english and sorry if I'm do some mistake.

  • ahmadnbl, that`s not what i mean. I want large text field with scrollbar. Like chat log or, you know, something like that:

    15:31 - You see ahmadnbl answered your question.

    15:32 - You download ahmadnbl`s example.

    15:33 - You need to update your construct2.

    Scroll down to see newest events.

    Anyway. Before you posted your example i used "anchor" plugin, but now i will use parallax. So thanks a lot, fellow.

    You can log all events in an array, and display a certain set of these events in a textbox. Take a look at this:

    I can't think of any way to solve this using the list object, but using a list as an inventory sounds like a terrible idea. I'd recommend looking into alternative methods. Take a look at this inventory example:

  • Perfect!

    I did something like your event listener yesterday (giant text field scrolling with mouse wheel), but your example is much better and, well, wiser :)

    Inventory example is perfect too. I was trying to do it some harder way, i don`t know why and for what.

    So, thanks for you help and advices. I have no more questions.
