WHY? WHY? WHY? GUI TEXT! SOLVED
« on: May 29, 2016, 02:36:26 PM »
Hey guys I was wondering if there are any in-depth tutorials on how to change canvas text in playmaker I know its easier than the method I have been using which is activating and  inactivating text objects I just want to simply change text in my state machines at the drop of a dime but get weirded out by all the c# js crap no offence to true coders! but I hate that stuff and that's why I love playmaker so much.

PS I'm a dummy so I need a step by step instructions or an tutorial good tutorial that shows the steps because there aren't any good ones.

I'm not entirely sure on your question... But if you are trying to change text of a label within canvas or something similar, the action to do that would be in 'UGUI' section of playmaker actions.

so if I add the canvas/ui/text how do I change the text on canvas through my state machine?
I know it sounds elementary but I cant seem to do it.

Have you imported the Unity UI Add-on?

Yeah, use the Convert Int to String action.
