JSON text format in Bedrock Edition is very different from that in Java Edition.

The possible elements to go in the {"rawtext":[]} component are:

  • text
  • translate
  • with
  • (args)

As you can see it is a very limited selection. This also means that there is no way to output a scoreboard score or a target selector's result to the chat. Is that right, or is there an alternate way to output these?

    If it's not in the wiki, I would assume so, yes. But of course you could in some situations check every value that can occur in that situation in one command each and output accordingly. – Fabian Röling May 28 at 8:15
  • I have literally never played MCBE and I have no idea how one would even check if that is true. I only want to answer if I know that it's true. – Fabian Röling Jun 5 at 20:16

  • I guess that means that my initial guess is probably correct. But since one can't just read the code of MCBE, it's not completely certain. – Fabian Röling Jul 9 at 8:55
  • I'm probably going to test this and give you the best answer as I know a tad of useful JSON. – Winfinity Jul 28 at 3:21

if you're still looking

/tellraw @a ["",{"text":"Your score: "},{"score":{"name":"@a","objective":"your score name"}}]

    Hi, this is Bedrock Edition, not Java. So that command will not work. – ExpertCoder14 May 31 at 18:47
  • There is a /tellraw command in MCBE, and it does support raw JSON. @ExpertCoder14 – Winfinity Jul 29 at 21:22
  • @Winfinity But does it allow selectors and scores? – ExpertCoder14 Jul 29 at 21:46
