How do I know if the player clicks on something thats not a button?

I am making a clicker game as a project, and I want to make it so when I click on a button it won’t count as a click (like so player doesn’t get the currency he gets for clicking)?

I got no idea how to know if the player is clicking on something that is not a Gui button.

This is the code I use for this part of the script:

local UIS = game:GetService("UserInputService")

	if Input.UserInputType == Enum.UserInputType.MouseButton1 or Input.UserInputType  Enum.UserInputType.Touch then
		print("Add money")

Should I maybe make a button that is the whole screen instead of this? I tried the button but it made it so I cant rotate my camera anymore and for mobile it had other problems.

You can use gameProcessedEvent.

local UIS=game:GetService("UserInputService")
UIS.InputBegan:Connect(function(Input, gameProcessedEvent)
	if not gameProcessedEvent then
		if Input.UserInputType == Enum.UserInputType.MouseButton1 then
			print("Add money")

This is made to do this, but the other way around. So we can just use a not.
Basically saying: Is the mouse NOT over a Gui item…

You don’t need to say “gameProcessedEvent” … but that is what the 2nd parameter is.

If you want a button to not receive click events, disable the GuiButton’s Active property. What are you intending to accomplish with tracking clicks that weren’t on a button?

i want the player to not get money when clicking if he clicks on a button. for example he opens the chat or he opens the shop. i want him to get money when he clicks on the screen or the button made for clicking.

You can use :GetGuiObjectsAtPosition() to figure out whether or not the mouse is currently over a gui object (such as a button)


local localplayer = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local mouse = localplayer:GetMouse()

	local guiobjects = localplayer.PlayerGui:GetGuiObjectsAtPosition(mouse.X, mouse.Y)
	if #guiobjects == 0 then -- not over any gui object
		-- increment clicker count

I just posted the real way you do that… Test it out (I did).
This is used so you can click a Gui item and not set off a click function someplace else.
I simply turned it around to test if you are not over a Gui item. Pretty straight forward stuff.

Thank you so much. I tried it and it works very well!

property GuiObject.GuiState!!!
