[1.12.2] How to remove all the text from a gui text field?


Recommended Posts

I just simply want to remove the words from a Gui textfield, is there some simple way to do that or I have to redraw the text field?

like say

if (!TextField.isEmpty){
  System.out.println("You have run this part!");
  if(TextField.getText == "some invalid thing"){
    TextField.clear();  // How do I clear the text already written inside this text field.
    System.out.println("Do the stuff you wanted to run");  


intelliJ shows this deleteWords in all the available things, but is this what I need? If yes what is p_146177_1_ int type here?

Also, you can't use == to compare strings, == does instance comparison. You need equals.


Yeah I know about that, I just wrote an example code there for explanation sorry for that.
