# How to let mouse move freely in a gui?[Solved]

Asked by 3 years ago
Edited 3 years ago

My game forces first person, so the mouse is locked in the middle of the screen. However, I would like to add a shop gui. The gui is pretty much useless when the mouse is stuck in the middle of the screen and can't click the buttons. I want to try to avoid making a keybind for every button in the gui. Is there any way I can simply let the mouse move freely while keeping the player in first person? Thanks in advanced

[Edit - I like your solution better, but didn't fully read your comment until after I posted this. I'll leave this here as an alternative.] You can have a GuiButton in your GUI with the Modal property enabled. If you don't use GuiButtons, you can add an invisible one (that is, it can have a Size of UDim2.new(0,0,0,0) to be invisible; it has to have Visible set to true).

You could have a button to activate/deactivate the mouse, which could simply toggle this button's Modal property.

By the way, if you've fixed your problem, it's good practice to edit your question's title to specify that it's been fixed/solved. chess123mate 5637 — 3y

Thanks, I've edited the title. It turns out Modal is actually a better alternative to what I had in mind. I thought that property meant you could move your mouse freely only over the button, but it turns out it's over the whole screen while Modal is true. Thanks! cowsoncows 946 — 3y

In the force first person script make it were if a GUI is enabled then disable the force script then If the GUI is not enabled then make force first person enabled.

If you like for me to give a script for an example, please edit your question and add the force first person script. Thank you!

That isn't exactly what I was looking for, as then the player's character will be visible and I don't want that. However I did find what I was looking for, it's this: UserInputService.MouseBehavior = Enum.MouseBehavior.Default. That will keep them in first person and let the mouse move around until I set it back to LockCenter. Thanks for your help! cowsoncows 946 — 3y
