    Large text files

    Hi,

    I am creating a Tarot reading program and want to be able to pull up a paragraph (Interpretation) of text when a card is clicked on.
    there would be 78 paragraphs of text (for the 78 cards) x 3 (Past, Present, Future) and I would want to be able to pull up a specific paragraph associated with that card.

    What would be the best way to approach this? I'm guessing an .ini or array?
    I have never used these and dont know really where to start.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Can you not use the RTF object off screen and retrieve the info into a string?

    I'm not sure if this will be helpful:

    The example in the first frame is pretty simple. However, it will be tedious to enter each paragraph into the string objects.

    The second example is much less tedious, but uses the String Tokenizer object:

    Re: Large text files

    I was thinking of working on a tarot program myself. Not sure when I'll get the chance to. I got the idea for how to store, modify, and retrieve the data by looking at the method that Orphalese Tarot (created in .NET) uses.

    The cards data is stored in XML files. There are two extensions that handle XML data: XML Parser and EasyXML Object. Both can be found at the Fusion Wiki Extension List (sidebar on your right under "Community Links").

    I have not messed around with the EasyXML Object. I only just installed it about 10 minutes ago. I did a quick search to see if there were other XML objects. Initially I had planned on using the XML Parser object.

    To format the data, now this is just off the top of my head and I have not tried it out, but you could pull the specific data from the specific XML node and then format it in a Rich Text object.

    Hope this helps.
