    Hey, total newbie and I could use some help.

    I'd like to know how can I add text to a permanent UI element, triggered by various in game events. Not replace the text, just add more lines to it.

    I'm trying to simulate a text msg conversation, the player will receive more msges as the story goes on but I don't know how to go about it. I've learned how to create a text ui, place it, make it scrollable etc, but I don't know how to add more text to it, while also preserving what's already written.

    You'd use the + operator, something like:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. label.text = label.text + newText;
