How to check if something is not in a table?

Asked by 7 years ago

See, what I'm trying to do is have a block be swung like a sword, and check if it's already hit that person to prevent from dealing mass amounts of damage.

Here is the basic script, without dealing any damage.

sword = script.Parent
mainpart = sword.Blade

hitplayers = {}

mainpart.Touched:connect(function(hit)
    if hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid") and (hit.Parent.Name[hitplayers]) == nil then
        table.insert(hitplayers, hit.parent.Name)
    end
end)

Any ideas?

You have to loop through the table.

function InTable(Tab,Val)
    for _,n in pairs(Tab) do
        if n == Val then
            return true
        end
    end
end

if not InTable({1,2,3,4},77) then
    print("HI")
end
