    Hey my new plugin checks if someone wrote [LevelUp] on the first line and after some other stuff it sets the sign color to blue by "&1[LevelUp]". I need to use:
    PHP:
    if(s.getLine(0).equalsIgnoreCase("[LevelUp]")){  
    To make sure when they right click the sign its the right sign. And when i used this, it didnt work. When i tried:
    PHP:
    if(s.getLine(0).equalsIgnoreCase("&1[LevelUp]")){  
    It still didnt work. I've seen how essentials does it but it uses a weird format built into their essentials api.

    Try changing this:

    Code:
    if(s.getLine(0).equalsIgnoreCase("&1[LevelUp]"))
    To this:

    Code:
    if(s.getLine(0).equalsIgnoreCase(ChatColor.BLUE + "[LevelUp]"))

    You could make it so it uses the Essentials API, and disables that feature if the server doesn't have Essentials like this:

    Code:
     
    Plugin e = getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin("Essentials");
     
    if (e != null) {
      //Essentials method
    } else {
      event.getPlayer().sendMessage("This feature is disabled without Essentials!");
    }
     
    
    Also, it might be helpful if I could see more of your code, I can't see some of the things that might influence it there.

    EDIT: Or what Taco said would probably work, he posted his while I was typing mine lol.

    I recommend using
    if(ChatColor.stripColor(s.getLine(0)).equalsIgnoreCase("[LevelUp]"))

    That ignores all colors.

    Thanks. i was thinking since it was a sign chat color wouldn't work, for obvious reasons.

    Yeah that didnt work. Im using color on signs, not color in chat.

    try
    Code:
    String  str = s.getLine(0).replaceAll("(\u00A7$2([a-f0-9]))", "");
     
    if(str.equalsIgnoreCase("[LevelUp]")){
     
     
    }
     
    
    note, im horrible with regex some im not entirely sure this will work

    ChatColor is a sort of global color enum (I think, could be wrong with my terms). So, no matter what you're using (Chat, Signs, Console) you will always use ChatColor. So therefore, @Pandemoneus was right when he said to use:
    Code:java
    1. if(ChatColor.stripColor(s.getLine(0)).equalsIgnoreCase("[LevelUp]"))

    If everything fails I would just System.out.println(s.getLine(0)) to see what you are actually getting from your sign.

    Mind posting your whole code and the System.out.println you get on the console?

    Here is a working regex for removing ascii colors:
    Code:
    .replaceAll("(\\u001B\\[[0-9][0-9]?m)","");
    Hope that helps...
