Solved Updating lore

  1. Hello, Im trying to make plugin that will register and show how many stone was mined using specifig pickaxe (in lore). I did like 95% of this plugin, but now i have problem with updating lore of the item.

    Command that replaces normal pickaxe with a new one
    Code (Java):

    p.sendMessage(chat("&aAdded "+prefix+" for this item!"));
    ItemMeta meta = p.getInventory().getItemInMainHand().getItemMeta();
    meta.setDisplayName(chat(prefix+" &citem name"));
    new STPickaxe().updateItem(p,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0);
    STPickaxe class
    Code (Java):

    public void updateItem(Player p, int diamond, int emerald, int gold, int iron, int redstone, int lapis, int coal, int quartz, int stone){
        ItemStack STPickaxe = p.getItemInHand();
        ItemMeta meta = STPickaxe.getItemMeta();
        if(STPickaxe.getType() == Material.DIAMOND_PICKAXE){
                meta.setLore(Arrays.asList(chat(" "),
                        chat("&6Stone: &7"+stone),
                        chat("&6Coal: &7"+coal),
                        chat("&6Iron: &7"+iron),
                        chat("&6Gold: &7"+gold),
                        chat("&6Lapis: &7"+lapis),
                        chat("&6Redstone: &7"+redstone),
                        chat("&6Diamonds: &7"+diamond),
                        chat("&6Emeralds: &7"+emerald),
                        chat("&6Quartz: &7"+quartz),
                        chat("&7Owner: "+p.getDisplayName())));
    And this is my drop class, where I want to add this thing that if a player broke an block, it will update lore.
    Code (Java):

    if(b.getType() == Material.STONE){
        boolean ST = p.getInventory().getItemInMainHand().getItemMeta().getDisplayName().contains(chat(prefix));
        if (p.getItemInHand().getType() == Material.DIAMOND_PICKAXE){
            <UPDATE LORE HERE>
  2. Just parse every line and edit it.
    I would have went a different route but i think you don't want to do packet stuff.

    Here is an example i wrote really quick. It can be used to parse for a specific line and increments the number behind a identifier.

    Code (Java):
      public void incrementLines(String identifier, List<String> lore) {
        // For every line in lore
        for (int index = 0; index < lore.size(); index++) {
          String line = lore.get(index);
          // Checks if line starts with identifier (Coal for example)
          if (stripColor(line).startsWith(identifier)) {
            // 1)Strip color 2)replace all but 0-9 3)parse to int
            int value = Integer.parseInt(extractNumber(stripColor(line)));
            // set a new lore line that replaces the old one
            lore.set(index, "§6" + identifier + ": §7" + ++value);
      // Replaces everything but 0-9
      private String extractNumber(String input) {
        return input.replaceAll("[^0-9]", "");
      // Strips color codes
      private String stripColor(String input) {
        return ChatColor.stripColor(input);

    Code (Java):
      public void incrementLines(ItemStack item, String identifier) {
        ItemMeta meta = item.getItemMeta();
        if (!meta.hasLore()) {
        List<String> lore = meta.getLore();
        incrementLines(identifier, lore);
