Having trouble with richtext inside script

Having trouble with richtext

richtext property is enabled

Did you take a look at this post? How do I use rich text inside a script?

Also, try this:

local textVar = "<tag>""<font color = rgb(0, 0, 255)>"..Char.Name.."</font>".." ".."Has".." "..killMessage[math.random(1, #killMessage)].." "..EnemyChar.Name.."</tag>"

I think the problem was using a variable for text

Set your Textlabel.text equal to the code

Try using your original code and see if it works.

Did you set your original code equal to the textlabel.text?

no I changed it up a bit

this is what I have right now

local textVar = "<tag><font color = rgb(255, 0, 0)>"..Char.Name.."</font>".." ".."Has".." "..killMessage[math.random(1, #killMessage)].." "..EnemyChar.Name.."</tag>"
TextLabel.Text = "<font color = rgb(255, 0, 0)>".."this is starting to really suck".."</font>"

im not using the variable anymore just using a string

Try adding the tags back. It may be just your variable.

not working::frowning:image
