Hey im trying to make a game where based on user input the game gives them a result of perfected, good or incorrect.

In this function I’m trying to change the color of the text based on what is in the text but i really don’t know what I’m doing.

extends RichTextLabel

export (Color,RGB) var text_color

func _ready():

func _text_color_changer():
if “Perfected” in text:
text_color = Color(0,255,0)
elif “Good” in text:
text_color = Color(100,200,0)
elif “Incorrect” in text:
text_color = Color(200,0,0)

func _on_LineEdit_text_entered(new_text):

Also if you can i would also like to know how to make the text fade out couple seconds after it appears?

Thanks guys.

You could directly apply it to your text via modulate or self_modulate = Color(0, 0, 0)

As for the animation you could use Animation Player
and key its modulate if you used self_modulate and vice versa

and adjust the line for time a little further by milliseconds and then
set a another key with lower opacity

and then call it in your code $“Anim Name”)
