Replaces with the specified string expression the text contained in a text object with the specified ID number.

Text_SetString returns a value of 0 if the string expression was successfully replaced and a value of -2 if the specified object ID number is invalid.


Text_SetString(ObjectID, "Text")


ObjectID - a numerical expression specifying the object ID number.
Text - the new string expression to be displayed in the text object.


  • An object-specific ID number is returned by Text_New when the text object is created.
  • Use Text_GetString to get the string expression from a specified text object.


Replace the text, contained in a text object with the ID number of 3, with the string expression "New Text":

Value1 = Text_SetString(3, "New Text");
