    Hey,

    I'm trying to change the text of a sign, but it doesn't seem to be working.

    Here is the code I am using. The Sign class I have imported is org.bukkit.block.Sign;

    Code:
    BlockState state = event.getBlock().getState();
    if (state instanceof Sign)
    {
        Sign sign = (Sign) state;
        sign.setLine(0, "Test text");
        sign.update();
    }
    
    I have also tried Sign.update(true), which I think is supposed to force the sign to update; but that did not work either.
    This code is currently in an onSignChangeEvent method. If I set the lines using SignChangeEvent.setLine() it works. But I also need to be able to change the text outside of events.

    Am I missing something? Why isn't the text changing?

    Thanks.

    the sign chance event is updating the sign after you update it using sign.update
