[1.8] Sign textComponent


Recommended Posts

I have the following code

BlockPos blockPos = new BlockPos(player.posX,player.posY,player.posZ);

String text = ((TileEntitySign)world.getTileEntity(blockPos)).signText[0].toString()



It's all working fine and dandy, except the print is something like..


TextComponent{text='I like trains', siblings=[], style=Style{hasParent=false, color=null, bold=null, italic=null, underlined=null, obfuscated=null, clickEvent=null, hoverEvent=null, insertion=null}}


I only want to get the text='I like trains', into a string, not the rest of that jibberish.

Any help?


*sorry if I'm posting too much.. I look things up and am honestly clueless..*

I just answered this in your previous thread:



method of most


implementations won't give you the text as a player would see it. Use




(client-only) to get the actual text of the


, either with or without formatting codes.


I don't think there was a need for a new thread.

Please don't PM me to ask for help. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future.
