Unable to use variables in directory

I’m having trouble making changes to a specific client, im getting the username from a textbox.text and finding if that playername exists, thats all fine my trouble is here ( local XS = game.Players.UserinfoEvent.PlayerGui.FailsGUI.Frame) where I am unable to find that player using the already set variables.

local ReplicatedStorage = game:GetService("ReplicatedStorage")
local AddEvent = ReplicatedStorage.Fails:WaitForChild("Add")
local RemoveEvent = ReplicatedStorage.Fails:WaitForChild("Remove")
local Players = game:GetService("Players")
local XHandler = ReplicatedStorage.Fails:WaitForChild("XHandler") 

AddEvent.OnServerEvent:Connect(function(plr, UserinfoEvent, Status)

	local UserinfoEvent = script.Parent.Parent.FailSetter.Frame.User.Text

	local PlayerToFail = UserinfoEvent

	local DirectedPlayer = game.Players:FindFirstChild(PlayerToFail)

	local XS = game.Players.UserinfoEvent.PlayerGui.FailsGUI.Frame
	XS.X1.One.Value = true

local XS = game.Players[UserinfoEvent].PlayerGui.FailsGUI.Frame

To solve this problem, you should change the line:

local XS = game.Players.UserinfoEvent.PlayerGui.FailsGUI.Frame


local XS = DirectedPlayer.PlayerGui.FailsGUI.Frame

This way, you are accessing the player’s GUI that you are referencing through the DirectedPlayer variable, instead of trying to access directly through the “Players” property of “game”.
