How to format parts of the text in a TextComponentString?

Alsan Ali

Recommended Posts

For example, I have a TextComponentString like this:


new TextComponentString("Hi, there!")


I want the 'Hi' to be blue and 'there' to be green. Also, how do we make parts of the text clickable? Like, if the player clicks 'hi' it will execute code

use Color Codes.

http://minecraft.tools/en/color-code.php (use the MOTD one)


Example of something I use in my mod (the first line is in orange/gold + Italics. the next line is normal white)


    public void addInformation(ItemStack stack, World worldIn, List<String> tooltip, ITooltipFlag flagIn) {
        tooltip.add("\u00A76\u00A7o"+"The ore must first be crushed, chemically processed and then refined using Electrolysis.");
        tooltip.add("By-Products of this ore include Gallium, Iron Oxides, Silica (Silicon Oxide) and Titania (Titanium Oxide).");


For the commands, look at how vanilla does it in the books. you wouldn't be limited by vanilla commands though, you could directly call your own java code

Create a "base" TextComponentString with an empty string in it. Then you can use ITextComponent::appendSibling on it with differently formatted components to form one big component.

Thanks, I thought about doing this, just didn't know how to nest TextComponentStrings together. And can you tell me the reason why color codes can't be used? I just want to know

    • okay thank you for clarifying! I'll try to implement the setup method and event listeners as an extra class, maybe this works!
    • Show your code. You do not have to draw the entire texture (see above). You do not have to draw the texture at 1:1 scale.

    • I am trying to set up my first project and it says this: Unsupported Java.  Your build is currently configured to use Java 16.0.1 and Gradle 6.8.1. Possible solution:  - Use Java 15 as Gradle JVM: Open Gradle settings   - Upgrade Gradle wrapper to 7.0 version and re-import the project I know I am using Java 15 already because in the gradle settings it says gradle JVM: 15 version 15.0.2 So my question is how do I upgrade the gradle wrapper? Sorry if this is a noobie question, trying to set up my first project.  
    • Yes, I don't think you want this as a mod jar. I am not 100% on the details, but ModLauncher implements a multi-module-layer system and you need to load into a specific layer.
