Hello everybody!

I used the code from here to create a button at runtime and attach a function to it:
func ready():
var button =
button.text = "Click me"

func buttonpressed():

But when I run my program, it gives me the following error message:
Invalid get index 'buttonpressed' (on base: 'Node2D ('). Did you mean '.buttonpressed()' or funcref(obj, "buttonpressed") ?

If I try so: button.pressed.connect(self.buttonpressed())
I also get an error message: Invalid call. Nonexistent function 'connect' in base 'bool'.
What is wrong with this? Maybe button creating is not working in Godot 3.3 in this mode, only in Godot 4.0?

Try changing button.pressed.connect(self.buttonpressed) to button.connect("pressed",self,"buttonpressed")

The syntax for connecting to signals is different from Godot 4 and Godot 3 I beleive

You're looking at the Godot 4.0 documentation. The way that signals are hooked up changed in Godot 4. Take a look at the docs for Godot 3.3.
