Can't retrieve text input from textbox

OS: Win10
PsychoPy version: 2020.2.10
Standard Standalone? (y/n): Y
What are you trying to achieve?:
I want to retrieve the text from a textbox and provide feedback based on it. I present a textbox, and then in the next trial routine I want to retrieve it.

I have tried textbox.text and textbox.getText() but this always just returns "default text". I did set the textbox to be an empty string, but even when I don’t do this it still just gives me default text. However the actual text that gets typed is still correctly writing to the output file though. Any ideas?
