I want a clean way of getting specific index members in an array during a loop. I want to provide an array of values and have the for loop retrieve the indexes specified by the array. I don't want to write a massive if statement with a bunch of ORs. Basically like this:

for i in (1,2,3,5,7,9, 18, 19) in get_children():


for i in get_children():
    if i == (1,2,3,5,7,9, 18, 19):

How can I do this?

Thanks. For my use case it doesn't seem to be working.

for i in get_children():
    if i in [0,1,3,5,7,9, 17, 18]: 
        i.visible = true
        i.mouse_filter = 1 

For some reason, nothing becomes visible. Without the if statement, the whole VBoxcontainer becomes visible.

get_index() fixes this.

Oh I see, sorry

i is not an index but rather the child node. You should do this or this

for i in get_child_count():
    if i in array:
        var child = get_child(i)

for child in get_children():
    if child.get_index() in array:
