shop_leave_rating


Description

This function opens up an OS dependant dialogue where you can ask the user to post a rating or comment to a particular page. You can define the text that is to appear in the dialogue, as well as the text you wish to appear on the two buttons and the URL where the comment has to be posted.

NOTE: This function is only for Android and iOS targets.
IMPORTANT! On iOS, when using TestFlight, in development the prompt will be displayed but you won't be able to actually do anything. Once your app is in the App Store, this button becomes active and the user is given the option to write a review or leave a rating. Note that if you distribute the game through TestFlight, this window may not even be shown.


Syntax:

shop_leave_rating(text, yes_string, no_string, url)

Argument Description
text Text that appears on the dialogue.
yes_string Text that appears on the "yes" button.
no_string Text that appears on the "no" button.
url The full URL where the comment has to be sent.


Returns:

N/A


Example:

if timer <= 0
   {
   shop_leave_rating("Thanks for playing the game! Why not leave a comment?", "Okay!", "Not Today!", "http://MacSweeney/comments");
   timer = 10000000;
   }
else
   {
   timer -= 1;
   }

The above code will ask the user to leave a comment if the variable "timer" has counted down to 0.
