Attempt to connect failed: Passed value is not a function

so I’m trying to make it load a shirt from it’s catalog id, if I enter in manually it will load the asset id, but if a script does it it just stays the numbers and will not load


local Player = script.Parent.Parent.Parent

local PrimaryColor = script.Parent.PrimaryColor
local SecondaryColor = script.Parent.SecondaryColor

local character
for i, v3  in pairs(workspace:GetChildren()) do
	if v3.Name == Player.Name then
		character = v3
local shirt = character.Shirt

local Clothingids = game.ReplicatedStorage.GradientClothing.Shirt:GetChildren()

function UpdateCLothing()
	for i, v in pairs(Clothingids) do
		if v.Name ==  PrimaryColor.Value then
			local scs = v:GetChildren()
			for i, v2 in pairs(scs) do

				if tostring(v2) == tostring(SecondaryColor.Value) then
					shirt.ShirtTemplate = tonumber(v2.Value)



basically, how can I make a catalog id into and asset id with scripts

You don’t put the 2 parenthesis when connecting functions. Just:

ok, but it still isn’t loading the shirt
It just shows the id
but if i put in the id manually it shows the shirt

Yeah, try:

shirt.ShirtTemplate = "rbxassetid://" .. v2.Value

When setting a shirt or pants ID, you need this format:
rbxassetid://[Number] (String)

ok, it’s still not working, I used the shirt id and assigned that because I thought since it worked when i did it manually it would work with the code

I think that Image rbxassetid:// is part of the solution, but i need to get the shirt id into the asset id first

For asset id’s to work they have to be “pre-loaded” (I am not quite sure the real name). To see this in action paste a catalogue id into a shirt inside of studio and watch the number magically change (not into “rbxassetid://”…num).

I’ve actually changed a persons shirt before just using rbxassetid. So I know it works.

I have done that, and if i do it manually it works and and the shirt is on my character but when a script does it, it stays whatever input you set it to…
