Trying to create both a text field and a text area, getting BCE0043 error

so, this is the script I’m trying to get working.
There is probably a really easy fix to the problem but I have no Idea what is wrong.
it is on the second line of code where I create the “textNumber1” string
I get the unexpected token: }. (BCE0043) error… so do you guys see where the silly mistake is? :slight_smile:
thanks for any help!

var firstTextField : String = "Type Your Answer Here";
var textNumber1 String = "Hello World

I’ve got 2 lines…";

	function OnGUI () {

// Make a multiline text area that modifies stringToEdit.

		textNumber1 = GUI.TextArea (Rect (10, 10, 200, 100), textNumber1, 200);
			// Make a text field that modifies stringToEdit.

		firstTextField = GUI.TextField (Rect (Screen.width/2-100, Screen.height/2-10, 200, 20), firstTextField, 25);
	

		if (Input.GetKeyDown ("return") && firstTextField == "continue")

			print ("enter key was pressed");
	
	
	}

I tried changing it to

var firstTextField : String = "Type Your Answer Here";
var textNumber1 String = "Hello World

I’ve got 2 lines…";

	function OnGUI () {

// Make a multiline text area that modifies stringToEdit.

		textNumber1 = GUI.TextArea (Rect (10, 10, 200, 100), textNumber1, 200);
			// Make a text field that modifies stringToEdit.
		firstTextField = GUI.TextField (Rect (Screen.width/2-100, Screen.height/2-10, 200, 20), firstTextField, 25);
	

		if (Input.GetKeyDown ("return") && firstTextField == "continue")
{
			print ("enter key was pressed");
	
}	
	}

but now I get the error “‘;’ expected. Insert a semicolon at the end. (UCE0001)” on line 2; where I create the String “textNumber1”

The only thing wrong in the first version is a missing ‘:’ between ‘textNumber1’ and ‘String’.
