How do I append text to textarea object?

  • I've searched a bit for a solution to this; I'm trying to design a event/combat log for my game and need to be able to append (add) text when new things happens ingame.

    However, the problem is that the textarea object only has "set text", which removes the current text when I'd like it to stay, and have the new text added in the bottom.

    How should I approach this problem? Any solutions appreciated!

  • Hi, try this: Textarea SetText -> Textarea.Text & newline & "TextYouWantToAppend"

    or if You want to put the fresh message to the first line, then:

    Textarea SetText -> "TextYouWantToAppend" & newline & Textarea.Text

    Hope this helps
