Creating a Space to Type a Name

I am trying to create a space where player’s can enter a name for their hero when they start a new game. Here is my code:

using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class Namespace : MonoBehaviour {
public string hero;

// Use this for initialization
void Start () {
	hero = new string();

// Update is called once per frame
void Update () {


void OnGUI () {
	GUI.Label(new Rect(10,10,50,25), "Enter Your Heroes Name:");
	hero = GUI.TextArea(new Rect(65,10,100,25), hero);


I get an error that says

Assets/Scripts (Medina)/Namespace.cs(9,36): error CS1729: The type string' does not contain a constructor that takes 0’ arguments

Any help is greatly appreciated :slight_smile:

Just remove that line, you don’t need it. You could set hero = “” if you want.
