From the Forum – Issue #164

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

Engage impulse engines

Corona allows you many different ways to move things, but if you’re using physics you can give objects a push or an “impulse.” In this post, the original poster wanted to know how to add random impulses to objects to get them moving.

Great balls of fire!

In this thread, a developer wanted to know the best way to make fireballs bounce up and down with a natural gravity-like effect. Corona super-developer @roaminggamer comes to the rescue with ways to use linear damping to control the bounce better.

File dialogs

If you’re building desktop apps, you probably need to implement things like file pickers or other OS-type dialog boxes. Corona veteran @starcrunch recently provided the Tiny Dialog plugin and this post is a shout-out from a thankful fan!

Do you have a particular forum thread that was helpful for you? Let us know about it! Email support@coronalabs.com, put FTF: and the forum title in the subject, and include the URL in the email. We will consider adding it to an upcoming edition of From the Forum.
