How do i select the clickdetector of many buttons in a folder?

Asked by 12 days ago

So, I am making an elevator that has a fading gui when you click a button, just to clarify, this script isn't mine, but how do i get the clickdetector of every part in the folder?

local Frame = script.Parent
local Buttons = game.Workspace.Buttons:GetChildren()
local ClickDetector = -- i wanna get the clickdetector of many parts with the same name in a folder here
local TweenS = game:GetService("TweenService")
local Db = false
local FadeTime = 3
ClickDetector.MouseClick:Connect(function()
    if not Db then
        Db = true
        TweenS:Create(Frame,TweenInfo.new(0.5),{BackgroundTransparency = 0}):Play()
        task.wait(FadeTime)
        TweenS:Create(Frame,TweenInfo.new(0.5),{BackgroundTransparency = 1}):Play()
        task.wait(FadeTime)
        Db = false
    end
end)

If you are looking to get every click detector inside a given folder (either as a child of a child, child of a child of a child, etc..):

you can use GetDescendants() and IsA(), both respectfully getting every object inside an object, and checking if a Roblox object is a specific type

local ClickDetectors = {}
local Folder = workspace:WaitForChild('ClickDetectors') 
-- change this to the location of your folder

for __index, __object in ipairs(Folder:GetDescendants()) do
    if __object:IsA('ClickDetector') then
        table.insert(ClickDetectors, __object)
        -- or do something with '__object'
        -- as it is confirmed to be a clickdetector
    end
end

fyi i have not personally tested this code myself

Consider changing __object.Mouseclick to __object.MouseClick (case sensitivity threw an error for me), other than that, the implementation looks fine loowa_yawn 281 — 11d
