So I am making something that requires access to a model in the players camera. BUT there is multiple items in the characters camera and they are added without a name and I CANT CHANGE THAT!! So I made a script that checks if there is a torso in the model but I get this annoying error.
Things to note : *This is in a localscript
Here is my code:
wait(1) while wait() do if script.Parent.WHat.LeopardFedora.Value == true then camitems = game.Workspace.CurrentCamera:GetChildren() for i = 1,#camitems do if camitems[i].Torso ~= nil then -- LINE 7 camitems[i].LeopardFedora.Transparency = 0 if script.Parent.WHat.LeopardFedora.Value == false then camitems[i].LeopardFedora.Transparency = 1 end end end end end
ERROR : 01:35:41.857 - Torso is not a valid member of Model 01:35:41.857 - Script 'Players.Player.PlayerGui.Main.GiveWearHat', Line 7 01:35:41.858 - Stack End
Thanks if you can help!
Well I can't think of any situation that would prevent you from changing the Model's name, but your problem is
You're trying to check if a Torso exists, but you're already assuming it exists!
camitems[i].Torso is trying to access the Torso. You don't even make it to the comparison. When you use a dot, you're making a statement. "Go to
camitems[i].Torso, now." It's very direct, like an order. If it doesn't exist, however, the code can not complete your order and throws an error.
What you need is the
FindFirstChild() method. It's advantage comes from the fact that it's in method form, so instead of throwing an error if the child doesn't exist, it just returns nil. Instead of, "Go get this!" you're saying something more like, "Alright, go look for this child. If he exists, bring him to me, otherwise bring me nothing."
Just remember that FindFIrstChild() will return nil at times, so it's only useful with an if statement or some other condition.
if camitems[i]:FindFirstChild("Torso") then --Equivalent to 'if camitems[i]:FindFirstChild("Torso") ~= nil then'. Just quicker.
