Help With This Custom Chat GUI?

Asked by 7 years ago

My custom chat GUI made to resemble the original ROBLOX chat is broken. Everything I type out comes out as gibberish and when I type another thing in it doesn't appear nor does the original line move up.

function UpdateOldLabels(Parent)
    for i,v in pairs(Parent:GetChildren()) do
        if v.Name:sub(1,4):lower() == "line" then
            local LineNumber = v.Name:sub(5)
            if LineNumber == "12" then
                v:Destroy()
            else
                v.Name = "line"..tostring(tonumber(LineNumber) + 1)
                v.Position = v.Position - UDim2.new(0,0,0,15)
            end
        end
    end
end

game:getService("Players").PlayerAdded:connect(function(player)
    player.Chatted:connect(function(msg)
        for _,v in ipairs(game:GetService("Players"):GetChildren()) do
            UpdateOldLabels(v:WaitForChild("PlayerGui").ScreenGui.Frame)
            newchatline = Instance.new("TextLabel",v:WaitForChild("PlayerGui").ScreenGui.Frame)
            newchatline.Text = player.Name.. ": " ..msg
            newchatline.Size = UDim2.new(1,0,0,15)
            newchatline.Position = UDim2.new(0,0,1,-15)
            newchatline.Font = "Arial"
            newchatline.TextColor3 = Color3.new(1,1,1)
            newchatline.TextStrokeTransparency = 0
            newchatline.BackgroundTransparency = 0.4
            newchatline.BorderSizePixel = 0
            newchatline.FontSize = "Size10"
            newchatline.TextXAlignment = "Left"
            newchatline.TextYAlignment = "Top"
            newchatline.ClipsDescendants = true
            newchatline.Name = "line1"
        end
        UpdateOldLabels(game:GetService("StarterGui").ScreenGui.Frame)
        newchatline:Clone().Parent = game:GetService("StarterGui").ScreenGui.Frame
    end)
end)

Also, does anyone know if it's possible to make the names a separate color and add a semicolon (";") at the end of the name?

CHnage it to:

function UpdateOldLabels(Parent)
    for i,v in pairs(Parent:GetChildren()) do
        if v.Name:sub(1,4):lower() == "line" then
            local LineNumber = v.Name:sub(5)
            if LineNumber == "12" then
                v:Destroy()
            else
                v.Name = "line"..tostring(tonumber(LineNumber) + 1)
                v.Position = v.Position - UDim2.new(0,0,0,15)
            end
        end
    end
end

game:GetService("Players").PlayerAdded:connect(function(player)
    player.Chatted:connect(function(msg)
        for _,v in ipairs(game:GetService("Players"):GetChildren()) do
            UpdateOldLabels(v:WaitForChild("PlayerGui").ChatGui.Frame)
            newchatline = Instance.new("TextLabel",v:WaitForChild("PlayerGui").ChatGui.Frame)
            newchatline.Text = player.Name=='DapperLink123' and ("[TAG HERE BEHIDE THE NAME] "..player.Name.. "; " ..msg) or (player.Name.. ": " ..msg)
            newchatline.Size = UDim2.new(1,0,0,15)
            newchatline.Position = UDim2.new(0,0,1,-15)
            newchatline.Font = "SourceSansBold"
            newchatline.TextColor3 = player.Name=="DapperLink123" and BrickColor.new("Bright red").Color or player.TeamColor.Color
            newchatline.TextStrokeTransparency = 0
            newchatline.BackgroundTransparency = 1
            newchatline.BorderSizePixel = 0
            newchatline.FontSize = "Size14"
            newchatline.TextXAlignment = "Left"
            newchatline.TextYAlignment = "Top"
            newchatline.ClipsDescendants = true
            newchatline.Name = "line1"
        end
        UpdateOldLabels(game:GetService("StarterGui").ChatGui.Frame)
        newchatline:Clone().Parent = game:GetService("StarterGui").ChatGui.Frame
    end)
end)

It adds a Tag beside you name It also has that a certain person has a certain color

Sort of. I didn't need the tag, I only needed a semicolon after the name, and the color didn't work. On the bright side, you DID fix the moving up, the deleting, and the gibberish. :D Thanks. DapperLink123 30 — 7y
