[SOLVED]Text GUI

Hi

I'm trying to print some text out in DrawGUI event and it isn't show anything.

Code:
draw_self();
draw_set_font(TitleScreenFont);
draw_text_ext_transformed_color(10,10, "Completed levels: " +
                                            string(global.completed_level1) + "first:" +
                                            string(global.completed_level2) + "second:" +
                                            string(global.completed_level3) + "third:" +
                                            string(global.completed_level4) + "fourth:" +
                                            string(global.completed_level5) + "fifth:" +
                                            string(global.completed_level6) + "sixth:" +
                                            string(global.completed_level7) + "seventh:" +
                                            string(global.completed_level8) + "eighth:" +
                                            string(global.completed_level9) + "ninth:" +
                                            string(global.completed_level0) + "tenth:" +
                                            string(global.completed_level1) + "eleventh:",
                                            30,300,10,10,0,c_red, c_red, c_red, c_red, 1.0);
Am I doing this right?

To me it looks like you have 13 arguments when it takes 11, which should give you an error, so is the object in the room?

Code:
draw_text_transformed_colour(x, y, string, xscale, yscale, angle, c1, c2, c3, c4, alpha);

x: 10
y: 10
string:
"Completed levels: " +
                                           string(global.completed_level1) + "first:" +
                                           string(global.completed_level2) + "second:" +
                                           string(global.completed_level3) + "third:" +
                                           string(global.completed_level4) + "fourth:" +
                                           string(global.completed_level5) + "fifth:" +
                                           string(global.completed_level6) + "sixth:" +
                                           string(global.completed_level7) + "seventh:" +
                                           string(global.completed_level8) + "eighth:" +
                                           string(global.completed_level9) + "ninth:" +
                                           string(global.completed_level0) + "tenth:" +
                                           string(global.completed_level1) + "eleventh:"
xscale: 30
yscale: 300
angle:10
c1:10
c2:0
c3:c_red
c4:c_red
alpha: c_red
Here's an example from the manual:

Code:
draw_set_halign(fa_center);
draw_set_valign(fa_middle);
image_angle += 1;
draw_text_transformed_colour(room_width / 2, room_height / 2, keyboard_string, 2, 2, image_angle, c_red, c_red, c_yellow, c_yellow, 0.5);
 
Sorry but the function takes 13 arguments. draw_text_ext_transformed_color. not draw_text_transformed_colour. no dice.

(edit)

Yes the object doing the drawing is in a room. I tried it in a blank room and in the room where its going to be used

You're right - I clicked on the wrong link when I was checking. I don't know what else to suggest apart from copy/paste the code that's in the manual and if that works, go from there.
