Reads a string from a given opened text file.



Argument Description
fileid The id of the file to read from.

Returns: String


With this function you can read a string from a text file and the function returns that value to be used or stored in a variable.


var i, file;
file = file_text_open_read(working_directory + "\hiscore.txt");
for (i = 0; i < 10; i += 1)
   scr[i] = file_text_read_real(file);
   scr_name[i] = file_text_read_string(file);

The above code opens a file for reading and then loops through the lines of the file reading alternately a real number value and a string into two different arrays for future use. The file is then closed when the loop has finished.
