Hi all,

Is there a way that I can change the color of the text that is displayed with a plotscript action?

EDIT:What exactly I'm trying to do is, display a text and after some multiple wait times, have the text change different colors.

For example...

show text box(121)
wait(5)
change text color(color)
wait(5)
change text color(color)

Does it work something like this?

Yes. Textboxes are displayed using slices, so it's as simple as changing the colour of the Text slice:

Code:

script, change textbox text color, color, begin
  variable(text slice)
  text sl := lookup slice(sl:textbox text)
  if (text sl) then (  # do nothing if there's no textbox open
    set text color(text sl, color)
  )
end

Indices of colours in the master palette, from 0 to 255. If you go into the Edit UI Colors menu and hit Enter on any option, then you will get a colour picker that shows you the index (number) of each colour.
