From the Forum – Issue #172

Welcome to this week’s From the Forum. In this post, we highlight a few Corona Community Forums posts that cover important topics.

Multiple variables for strings

The original poster was curious how to have multiple variables in a string. Our community developers came up with multiple solutions in this thread.

Aligning text in a text field

The question asked in this thread is how to cause a native.newTextField to show the beginning of the string if the text entered was too long. Learn how to force the string back to the beginning.

Creating Custom Rankings

Games need leaderboards, but sometimes developers need their own unique stats to rank more than score, time, etc. In this thread options are explored to cover various ways to manage one’s own rankings.
