    Hi, I have been trying to understand the linkage between an LUA and XML file when altering an onscreen display thing like the city banner. I have studied code from "Sukritact's Simple UI Adjustments" and others. But can't see how the data is passed into the XML file which I think controls the format of the data display?

    Also, I'd love to understand how the data is passed the other way!

    If you know of a good guide or reference that would be outstanding.

    See William Howard's UI tutorials in the civ5 Tutorials and References forum. The relationship between the lua UI file and the XML "context" file are the same, altho the methods used to "import" these two types of files into the game are different between civ5 and civ6.
