ArrayMaker Display Text From a list question
« on: January 17, 2013, 03:36:11 PM »
The project is just too big i need to re think how to work it at the moment im manually inputting the text whereas now i think it'd be better to write the text in a text editor drag that into unity and have the arraymaker read from that text list.
so my question is how do i get arraymaker to read off of a text list and display that text on that particular line


thank you

Hi,

 Yes Split text action is your friend.

Also, don't forget that I have created a small xml/xpath system. and that is incredibly powerful to extract data from a really huge xml, based on various criterias etc etc. With a split text, you get a simple list, that's fine for mayn cases, but if your question will start to belong to contexts, or have to be selected based on criterias, then a simple list will not be enough.
