    sorry for my english

    i'm new to unity and i dont know what i'm doing wrong:

    i'm making a turn based game and i'm stuck loading the "fighter" move names(in my case mecha)
    into the buttons of the hud

    public void SetMoveNames(List<Button> moveButtons, List<Move> moves)

    for (int i = 0; i < moveButtons.Count; i++)
    if (i < moves.Count)
    string moveName = moves.Base.Name;
    moveButtons.GetComponentInChildren<TextMeshProUGUI>().text = moveName;
    moveButtons.GetComponentInChildren<TextMeshProUGUI>().text = "-";



    this is the function inside my BattleDialogBox script that i use to update the button's text (that dont work lol)

    moveButtons is a list where i've dragged and dropped the textmesh component of the buttons into the exposed fields (like this "[SerializeField] private List<Button> moveButtons;" )

    and in my BattleSystem script ;

    public IEnumerator SetupBattle()


    dialogBox.SetMoveNames(dialogBox.GetMoveButtons(), playerUnit.Mecha.Moves);
    yield return dialogBox.TypeDialog("The players take their positions as the match gets started.");
    yield return new WaitForSeconds(1f);


    i update the buttons text with this line "dialogBox.SetMoveNames(dialogBox.GetMoveButtons(), playerUnit.Mecha.Moves);"

    what am i doing wrong ?
