    This is probably a very "noob" question...but I am attempting to call a variable from another C# file and am having difficulty. I will provide my code..

    Code (CSharp):
    1. using System;
    2. using System.Collections;
    3. using System.Collections.Generic;
    4. using UnityEngine;
    5. using UnityEngine.UI;
    6.  
    7.  
    8.  
    9. public class UserVitalStats : MonoBehaviour
    10. {
    11.     CharacterController charController;
    12.     FPCharacterController playerController; //THIS IS WHERE I CANT GET IT TO WORK
    13.  
    14.     void Start()
    15.     {
    16.         charController = GetComponent < CharacterController> ();
    17.         playerController = GetComponent<FPCharacterController>(); //ALSO WHERE I CANT GET IT TO WORK
    18.     }
    19.  

    CALLING FROM

    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. using System.Collections;
    3. using System.Collections.Generic;
    4. using UnityEngine;
    5. public class FPCharacterController : MonoBehaviour
    6. {
    7.  
    8.     public Rigidbody rigidBody;
    9.     public FPCharacterController playerController;
    10.  
    11.  void Start()
    12.     {
    13.         playerController = GetComponent<FPCharacterController>();
    14.     }
    15. }
    16.  
    I had other code involved but just used the necessary to shorten it...if I need to I can put the full code

    What are you trying to do? Why do you have the FPCharacterController with a variable to an FPCharacterController?

    If UserVitalStats is on the same GameObject as the FPCharacterController, then the GetComponent call will work as you have written.

    Wow now I see where I went wrong haha. Cut and paste issues. Thanks for the extra set of eyes with the FP Character controller situation! I've been looking at code for hours o_O
