[Solved] [1.8.9] Checking sign text


Recommended Posts


Id like to check if a block is a sign and if it is, save the second line of the sign in a string.


Is this how you would check if its a sign (in the most practical way for this use)?

BlockPos BlockPosition = new BlockPos(posX, posY, posZ);

if(world.getBlockState(BlockPosition).getBlock() == Blocks.standing_sign || world.getBlockState(BlockPosition).getBlock() == Blocks.wall_sign){

	String x = <2nd line of sign>;

What I dont know how to do is how i get the sign text.

Ive seen people talk about using something like ".signText", but i have no clue how i would use that.

Also I wonder if its possible to change the text clientside only? (or make the sign stand out somehow)


Thanks in advance.
