Local script doesnt open/close door when pressing button

Hello! Today I tried to code a simple door opening script that makes the door almost invisible and turns off the collision, but it didn’t work. I really tried everything, but nothing seemed to fix it. :slightly_frowning_face: The code I wrote is a localscript in a part called “Button”.

local button = script.Parent

	workspace.Door.CanCollide =  false
	workspace.Door.Transparency = 0.9 -- make the door almost invisible
	workspace.Door.CanCollide = true
	workspace.Door.Transparency = 0.1 -- make the door almost fully visible

( also it doesn’t show a error in the output window. )

are you coding for mobile?
if you are coding for pc you have to use

your code

its not a GUI button, it’s a part called “Button”

local Part = script.Parent 

if Hit.Parent:FindFirstChild(“Humanoid”) then
workspace.Door.CanCollide = false
	workspace.Door.Transparency = 0.9
	workspace.Door.CanCollide = true
	workspace.Door.Transparency = 0.1

Local scripts do not work in workspace. Try using a server script or move the script to starter player and change the part variable accordingly if you only want the player who touched the part to see it. I had that error before too, if you added a print to the start of the script it would not print because the local script will only run in starter player or starter character. I hope this helps.

It is true that you can’t have local scripts in the workspace
but if you wish to keep the change Client-Side you should put the script into

–Extra stuff
I recommend using workspace:WaitForChild(“Part name”)
and maybe a small cooldown.

A LocalScript does not load when put into a Part nor something not related to the player itself, which makes sense because you want the code to be replicated only to the player. A solution is to put it either in StarterCharacterScripts or StarterPlayerScripts if you need it to be a LocalScript to Replicate only to the client. Or you could simply make a normal script, but it would replicate to everyone.

use a server script rather than a local script

I believe you need to define the workspace as it’s own service, because it is a local script. If you are running this script in the workspace, you can’t do that. Instead, you’d have to change a normal script’s RunContext to Client. With your script in mind, this should be a viable solution, albeit with some edits.

Edit: Made some changes to the script to only have it run when a character touches it.

local ws = game:GetService("Workspace")
local button = script.Parent

	if hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid") ~= nil then --only run script when a character touches the door
		ws.Door.CanCollide =  false
		ws.Transparency = 0.9 -- make the door almost invisible
		ws.Door.CanCollide = true
		ws.Door.Transparency = 0.1 -- make the door almost fully visible

If you have any problems running this script, let me know.

Best regards,

.Touched is only used when anything collides with the part. If you want to make a button, you need to put a ClickDetector for it and use the .MouseClick function instead.
