Players Friends Gui

Hello Devs,

Recently I have started a new project and I have started making the GUI for the game and as I was making the main menu screen I had wanted to make a bar on the side of the players screen to see if there friends were online and in the game so they could party up with them, but after a few attempts at making the script I have gotten further but can reach the end.

The code is below right now it is able to clone the imagelabel the only issue is the image it doesn’t use the friends id only the local players… If that makes sense.

Here is what I mean each one of those images is cloned at it is supposed to, but they are supposed to be the all of the local players friends image not my own.

local players = game:GetService(“Players”)

game.ReplicatedStorage.PlayersFriends.OnServerEvent:Connect(function(player, plrId)
local friendsId = plrId
local PlayersFriends = {}

local success, page = pcall(function()
	return players:GetFriendsAsync(friendsId)
if success then
		local info = page:GetCurrentPage()
		for i, friendInfo in pairs(info) do
			table.insert(PlayersFriends, friendInfo)
		if not page.IsFinished then 
	until page.IsFinished

local sideMenuBackground = player.PlayerGui.MainMenu.SideMenu.Background

local thumbType = Enum.ThumbnailType.AvatarBust
local thumbSize = Enum.ThumbnailSize.Size420x420

for i, v in pairs(PlayersFriends) do
	print("Username = " .. v.Username .. " | UserId = " .. v.Id)
	local clonedProfilePicture = sideMenuBackground:FindFirstChild(v.Username)
	if not clonedProfilePicture then
		local success, content = pcall(function()
			return game.Players:GetUserThumbnailAsync(v.Id, thumbType, thumbSize)

		local profilePicture = player.PlayerGui.MainMenu.SideMenu.Background.ProfilePicture:Clone()
		profilePicture.Name = v.Username
		profilePicture.Image = success and content or "" -- Use a fallback image if retrieval failed
		profilePicture.Parent = sideMenuBackground

		-- Use UIListLayout or UIPageLayout for positioning the profile pictures
		local layout = sideMenuBackground:FindFirstChildOfClass("UIListLayout") or sideMenuBackground:FindFirstChildOfClass("UIPageLayout")
		if layout then
			profilePicture.LayoutOrder = i
			profilePicture.Position =, 10, 0, (i * profilePicture.Size.Y.Offset) + (i * 5))


You should refer to this post’s solution to help you out:

Thank you for the recourse however this is not quite what I am looking for I am not checking to see if a players friend has player before or not; I am grabbing the players friends list and grabbing their user id’s to see the profile pictures on the gui bar, and it works in the output I get all the local players friends id’s, but they don’t update into the imagelabel shown in the screenshot. I hope this explains it a little better or if I am missing something in the recourse you provided

Have you tried printing (v.Id)? This is to see if it even matches with trier friends’ user id or not

Edit: I see that you have. Try entering this URL into your search bar: “”

If it pulls up the friend, then idk why it’s only getting the local player.

EDIT: Also are you sure that you don’t have another pairs loop above with the defined variable “v”? That might be what’s happening if your getting the local player like that.

Currently Roblox does not seem to be working so ill try the link later but yes when I print the v.Id it prints the players name and id so that is working Ill have to look into it further because there are also no other for i, v loops above this or in any other script in the game sense it is new

Also what is “friendsid” defined as?

v.Id if that is what you are asking

This is what I mean by “friendsid”. I just wanna know what it is.

Okay so to get the local plrs Id I made a remote event to send the local plrs Id to the server so you can put it into the friends id allowing it to go through your friends list and getting all there player id’s

Here is the client script to send the info to the server

– Retrieve the local player

local remoteEvent = game.ReplicatedStorage.PlayersFriends

local player = game.Players.LocalPlayer

local plrId = player.UserId

local thumbType = Enum.ThumbnailType.AvatarBust

local thumbSize = Enum.ThumbnailSize.Size420x420

local content = game.Players:GetUserThumbnailAsync(plrId, thumbType, thumbSize)

script.Parent.Image = content


Okay so I don’t know what changed but some how it started working thank you so much for the help :slight_smile:
