Hi, Thanks for your reply.
The TextObject doornotice’s instants variable is ‘vartitle’.
I try to use : Change the text of doornotice: set to doornotice.VariableString(vartitle)
Also try to use: Change the text of doornotice: set to doornotice.VariableString(doornotice.vartitle)
In runtime, the text still shows: 0

This is the correct way.

Don’t put the string in quotes in the editor properties panel.

Yes, I just understood.
Thanks for your help. :smiling_face:

Sorry for the variable name mix up. Switching between a reply and an image is tough especially when you have very short short-term memory.

This should work, it works for me.

As MrMen said, you don’t need quotes but it shouldn’t make the variable 0, it should only add the quotes to the string like cat to “cat”.

I’ve seen where instance variables get messed up especially if you create them multiple times using different areas. I would try deleting the variables from both the instances and object then add the variables again. Also, make sure you’re using the most recent version of Gdevelop.
