Local script doen't open GUI

This script works fine but if in a Local script it does’t work.

local clickable = true
function click ()
	if clickable == true then
		clickable = false
		script.Parent.Text = script.Parent.Reply.Text
		clickable = true


Is this inside PlayerGui, or in the workspace?

It is in the Workspace. :grinning:

That explains it oof

LocalScripts cannot work if they’re parented inside the workspace, although I am wondering…What GUI exactly are you trying to work with here? A Billboard/SurfaceGui in the workspace? Or something like a ScreenGui for the Player to see on their screen?

LocalScripts only work in PlayerScripts (or ReplicatedFirst), so you would need to put them in StarterPlayerScripts. And ScreenGuis only work when parented to PlayerGui, so you would need to put them in StarterGui.

If you’re referring to the former, it says on the developer hub:

A LocalScript will only run Lua code if it is a descendant of one of the following objects:

  • A Player’s Backpack , such as a child of a Tool
  • A Player’s character model
  • A Player’s PlayerGui
  • A Player’s PlayerScripts .
  • The ReplicatedFirst service’

(Sorry, I missed a couple of others)
