For MMF or TGF, I need help...

I want to make a program that will translate a whole sentences (but one word at a time) to another language. In order to do this I would need some kind of special condition for an Edit Object, getting one word at a time and then converting to another language and adding it to the second Edit Object. Is there any way of doing this?

Hell no. That is to say yes, it's possible, you just have to loop and look for spaces, but you really wouldn't want to do it in a klik product. They aren't friendly to string manipulation.

Anyway, what are you going to do about syntax in different languages? Unless of course you're using an imaginary language...
Anyway, if I were doing it, I'd write something simple in BASIC and use the MMF BASIC extension, rather than sweating over it in klik. The problem you have is storing the words for conversion, although you could equate them manually in an INI, I suppose.

As Radix said, it's possible in TGF/MMF out-of-the-box, but it requires a bit of work.

I'm pretty sure the String Parser object (from 3EE) can get words seperated by tokens (i.e. a space, newline, etc), you might like to try that. It's downloadable from their website, or from the Clickteam website.

String Parser object can delimit, from 3EE.

Ok, the structure of the language wont really matter, I'm not that picky about it, but your right, that would be a problem.

I will look into the String Parser object. Thanks.

Dictionary object will also be useful, if only because it comes with a massive premade list of real english words. You can write the foreign ones yourself.

Actually it wouldn't be that hard, the hard part would be typing in all the words and thier translations! -_-'! Go to tig's website and look on his example of string parsing, also look for his example on script making. Those both use string parsing and they can recognize letters/words.
