    Hi guys,

    I'm currently working on a clicker game as my second ever game and I'm having some problems with TextMeshPro.

    I'm trying to use the GetComponent command but for some reason it's not working, the line looks like this:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. fakeText.GetComponent<textMeshPro>().text = "Hire Chef - $" + chefValue;
    I've already put using TMPro at the top of my script, but I still keep getting a null reference error. Can someone please let me know what I'm doing wrong? Let me know if you need the rest of the code or more information.

    Thanks.

    You can also use TMP_Text which is the base class for both
