How do I shut down a function if the function is used again?

Asked by 5 days ago
Edited 5 days ago

I'm attempting to make a gui that shows different sets of tips that are sectioned off and are chosen based on the players choice. The gui seems to be functioning well, the button for opening up the thing works well, the section opens the respective tips, but when I close out of one section and decide to click on the other section, when I click the button that takes me to the next page or that takes me back, the display may show the text that is stored from the other dictionary. I'm pretty sure the problem is that when I switch to the other section, the previous function is still active since the output shows the Page number/All pages ratio (Line 100/118)print("Next "..Page.."/"..#TypeOfHelp)for both section selected. Is it possible to shut down one function, preferably via the exit button function (Line 91)

ExitButton.MouseButton1Down:Connect(function()
    Exit = true print(Exit)
end),

to stop conflicting actions?

is important to know that you are slower than the survivors, though there are powers that will help make up for that setback.",
[2] = "Sense - You will be able to go into 3rd person for 10 seconds, allowing you to stalk without the risk of being spotted.",
[3] = "Reform - A map will appear with blue spots that can be clicked on. You will be teleported to the spot.",

to running speed.",

caught, during chase when you are already spotted, this will not matter as much.",
