Displaying text from script onto screen

  • // -----JS CODE-----

    //@input Component.Text TextObject




    var whatisyear = moment().year()

    var whatismonth = moment().month() + 1

    var whatisday = moment().date()


    function convertToRoman(num) {

    var RomanToNum = {

    M: 1000,

    CM: 900,

    D: 500,

    CD: 400,

    C: 100,

    XC: 90,

    L: 50,

    XL: 40,

    X: 10,

    IX: 9,

    V: 5,

    IV: 4,

    I: 1



    var roman = "";


    for (var key in RomanToNum) {


    while (num >= RomanToNum[key]) {

    roman += key;

    num -= RomanToNum[key];











    function set() {

    script.TextObject.text = String(roman)



    This is currently what my script looks like, I am looking to take the output from "print(roman);" and displaying it onto the screen, is anyone sure of why it isn't working?

    to show a text from script to screen

    first add a screen text

    then use a simple code to give it a value

    // @input Component.Text mytext

    script.mytext.text = anyvalue;
