how to set item name colour?


Recommended Posts

close david, he wanted the "Item Name" not "Tool Tip"


I'd say overwrite the Item's "getItemStackDisplayName" method and have it return:


        return this.getUnlocalizedName(par1ItemStack) == null ? "" : EnumChatFormatting.RED+StatCollector.translateToLocal(this.getUnlocalizedName(par1ItemStack));


and pick a color. give that a shot.

Well the way I do it is this:


public String getItemStackDisplayName(ItemStack par1ItemStack) {
	String size = UtilityNBTHelper.getString(par1ItemStack,
	if ((size == "normal") || (size == "")) {
		return ("" + StatCollector.translateToLocal(this
				.getUnlocalizedNameInefficiently(par1ItemStack) + ".name")).trim();
	} else {
		return (size.substring(0, 1).toUpperCase() + size.substring(1) + " " + StatCollector
						+ ".name")).trim();


but I don't add color, maybe you just need an extra "space" to seperate the color and the name?



Tested it with my weapons that use this, by placing "EnumChatFormatting.RED" just before the " " and I get "Large Sword"



Also seems I jumped the gun as was not a very favorable person. David was correct, I think you just need to alter the first entry of the List in addInformation() method.

Either way mine works, but seems to require more work then necessary.
