GUI chat window is overwritting every echo?

Post by Xaviel » Fri May 05, 2017 8:47 pm

So, I picked up an old GUI from the forums. forums.mudlet.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4098
I'm kind of new to this and I've been trying for the better part of the morning to get this one window to work correctly. I've gotten everything to work properly and the windows are functioning as they should, but I'm clearly doing something wrong here. I'm trying to make my target alias echo as a clickable link to GUI.Box4. Now I successfully got it to echo while I was troubleshooting, but it seems that every echo overwrites the last one?

Is there a way to make it scroll? Can someone point me towards the correct command to achieve this so that it stores my old targets and scrolls them as I play?
target = matches[2]
GUI.Box4:echo("Target: "..target)
Is what I have in my script box for my target alias, but it doesn't seem to keep the old lines? Am I doing something wrong here or do I need to add something?

That seems OK. Maybe your window is just 1 line in height, so it seems like it's overwriting? Mind posting a screenshot?
