InputBegan firing twice

Hey! I’ve connected the InputBegan event to a function, and it seems like it fires twice even when I click once.

That should be alright, but a lot of the keys I use it for are toggling properties and features in the plane, therefore it ends up at the default value.

uis.InputBegan:Connect(function(i, p)
if p == false then
		    table.insert(keysBeingPressed, #keysBeingPressed + 1, i.KeyCode)
		    mainEvent:FireServer(i.KeyCode, i.UserInputType)
	    end
end)

I’ve been trying to find the root to the problem for a while now. I found out that it fires on the same key, at the exact same time without firing InputEnded, which also fires twice obviously.

Seems like you’ve got a bit of a code block issue there. Remember to put your code inside 3 backticks in order for them to be formatted on the thread properly.

```lua
– Your code

I am unable to reproduce this error. I tried creating a repro with the code you posted on this thread (since you did not include a full example of relevant code and truncated it a little too much) and it only fires once as expected.

If you’re making a system that’s intended to check the keys being pressed, might I suggest using the event that’s intended for this, which is GetKeysPressed?

Thanks for telling me about the code block issue :relieved:

I think it might be a problem with my script, but I have no idea what the problem is. I need to use InputBegan though. Also, thanks for the reply.

Is there a specific reason why you cannot use the API that I listed? What you can probably do is have a “master” key to be pressed (i.e. Y), then use that method to see if the other keys are being pressed that are needed to proceed with the function (i.e. Ctrl).

I’m so stupid that I didn’t think of that. Thank you so much for the help.
