I'm looking for a way to get text from an instance of a text object (by iid or uid)... ?
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Use the condition "System -> Pick nth instance", and the expression TextObject.Text to get the text from the instance.
Edit: Quick .capx
The index is available to all objects text(index).text. IE text2 set text to text1(text2.iid).text....
And lions and tigers, and bears, oh my.
if you know the name of the text instance you want to get it from just use its name?
Thanks all of you guys.
The newt's solution was the one I needed.
