Billboard ui isnt clickable why?

im trying to make a screengui apear when the player clicks a billboard gui but it doesnt work

heres the code

	game.StarterGui.ScreenGui.Frame.Visible = true

workspace for billboard gui

workspace for startergui

EDIT: I changed the name because I’m pretty sure it’s not the code that is the problem since when I click on my billboard UI it doesn’t register the click does anyone what the problem is?

Try this:

Plr = game.Players.LocalPlayer

Frame = Plr.PlayerGui:WaitForChild("ScreenGui").Frame

Frame.Visible = true

I am seeing 2 major problems here.

The first one is that you have a local script inside of your billboard gui. If it is in the workspace, then you cannot use a local script.

The second is that you are accessing the “ScreenGui” from StarterGui. Once you play the game, you can only change a gui if the script is inside of starter gui, or by accessing it via PlayerGui.

See if this will work (REMEMBER: This is in a Server Script, not a Local Script.)

   local Frame = plr.PlayerGui.ScreenGui.Frame
   Frame.Visible = true

ill try these now thanks

i dont think that i can click the button even tho its an image button so im not sure if its the code

i made it so the image changes when you click it to see if i can click it and it didnt change

You cannot access the ScreenGui this way. Each player has a PlayerGui, the StarterGui is where you place GUIs that will be loaded into the PlayerGui when a player joins.

You have to do

player.PlayerGui.ScreenGui.Frame.Visible = true

for some reason i cant click the billboard ui idk why

You can try to set your local script to a script where you set the RunContext to client and in your script put that :

local Players = game:GetService("Players")
local Player = Players.LocalPlayer

	Player.PlayerGui.ScreenGui.Frame.Visible = true

You need to put the same code but in a script not a local script that all !

i did and it still didnt work
i dont think you understand its not becouse its a local script or a normal script

the thing is it doesnt even count the clicks i changed the click image property and it still didnt do anything since it cant detect the clicks

You know, you can look into BillboardGui Here

My Stupid:

"BillboardGuis are containers for GuiObjects` that appear in the 3D space."

Not sure if that means if it Holds Gui, or it Shows Gui

hmmm i put a image button and it should work but idk thanks tho

Try this: script.Parent.MouseButton1Click:Connect(function() game.Players.LocalPlayer.ScreenGui.Frame.Visible = true end)

most people arent understanding my problem so let me clarify

the problem isnt the code its that th ui isnt clickable so my problem why cant i click the uli

Can’t you just use ProximityPrompt as a fake Clicker?
