Adding text to chest with a specific name


Recommended Posts

I need to add text to the chest window when the name of the chest is equal to something.

I guess I need an event that fires every tick or so when you are inside a chest, and then render the text somehow above it.

Are there any good examples of the events I need to use in order to achieve something like this?

    public void renderChest(DrawScreenEvent e) {
    	if (e.getGui() instanceof GuiChest) {

Doesn't work for some reason

You have shown zero of your code.

ScaledResolution sr = new ScaledResolution(mc);
	    	String displayGUIText = "This is a place-holder";
	    	e.getGui().drawString(mc.fontRenderer, displayGUIText, sr.getScaledWidth() / 2 - mc.fontRenderer.getStringWidth(displayGUIText) / 2, sr.getScaledHeight() / 2 - 85, 0xFFFFFF);


just some basic font render stuff, it's all inside the event listener I sent earlier. (DrawScreenEvent.Post)

You need to set the GL color to white.

I don't think I really know how to do this, do you have an example of this?

GL11.glColor4f(1, 1, 1, 1);

This is what I found but it does nothing.


Also, can I get the chest's custom name from this event?

Use GLStateManager.color. You might also need RenderHelper.disableStandardItemLighting (and RenderHelper.enableStandardItemLighting after you are done).



Awesome it worked. I am fiddling around trying to figure out how to get the custom chest name. Should it be inside getGui()?

GuiChest already draws the name, look at it.

I checked GuiChest by itself and what e.getGui() gives, also e.getGui().getClass() , couldn't find it. I'm probably not even close
