Visual Indicator for Disable Scripts


#52

If you set the Disabled property of a Script to true, it will cause it to not run, and with this change causes the icon to become grayed out.


#53

Exactly this! The Silk Icon set already includes a light bulb on/off variant too, so they wouldn’t even have to make one. They are very visually distinct too.


#54

I was thinking the same thing with the Discord color blind friendly mode. Nice recreation btw.


#55

This is true! In studio, while you can adjust the color of most things, I don’t see things relating to changing symbols. That being said, why don’t they put “colorblind mode” or something to that effect onto studio?

Its a good idea, the most we can go for. The least we could go for is a color blind friendly icon for everyone instead of a color blind friendly mode.

This is a great idea, creating a visual indicator for disabled scrips will save us from a lot of hassle in the future. There’s been numerous times I’ve spent far too long trying to fix something in my code when the real problem was that I had the script disabled!

However, I have to agree with the general consensus that the icon is not dark enough. At a glance, it can be difficult to distinguish the two colours.


#59

Should be changed to something else, Like it says (Disabled) or a red dot or something, It’s kinda hard to see a bit since its almost the same color as the enabled color on some screens, I’ve mistaken it as a enabled script a couple of times.

Half-conscious, long nights of painfully debugging new code, only to discover you intelligently disabled something: you will be missed :heart:


#62

Does anybody experience this when they see a disabled script?

I definitely think it would be useful to have something more prevalent such as a cross on the icon.


#63

Great idea, but it could’ve had a better execution. The colour of a disabled script isn’t too much different from an enabled script so you can’t really distinguish it at first glance. It would be much better if there was a red circle with a cross in it overlayed over the icon, or something similar.


#64

Countless times I have accidentally disabled a script and spending hours trying to figure out what went wrong, then I realize I accidentally disabled a script. I’m glad this change made it through to Roblox Studio.


#65

Solves an excellent amount of problems with getting help from Discord communities. I can’t tell you how much people’s time I wasted just by a disabled script. Disabled scripts are now angry over this update, because they can’t troll people anymore when the host machine is confused. (basically you)

I’m a little late on this but it’s really helpful; before this, I had to enable the AreScriptStartsReported setting. It also worked, but it would sometimes spam out any useful data printed for debugging so it wasn’t ideal.


#68

Feel like they should aswell do this for Ui Frames (is Visible), ScreenGuis (is Enabled) SurfaceGuis (is Enabled) and billboards (is Enabled) Would be an very appriciated feature!


#69

I recommend making a feature request on this in the required format in Studio Features, that suggestion might get lost here
