Hi! :)

Currently following a tutorial -

I can't seem to work out the syntax (code is GDScript) to write it into C#

What would be the equivalent/translation of this line in C# from GDScript?

for button in $Menu/CenterRow/Buttons.get_children();

Thank you!

Best answer
foreach (Button button in GetNode("Menu/CenterRow/Buttons").GetChildren())

But it will throw an exception if not all children are a Button, if you need to check if the node is a Button then use this:

    foreach (var obj in GetNode("Menu/CenterRow/Buttons").GetChildren())
        var button = obj as Button;
        if (button != null)
            GD.Print($"{button.Name} is a button");

Another safe assumption is to cast to Node:

 foreach (Node node in GetNode("Menu/CenterRow/Buttons").GetChildren())

It depends if you need to use button functionality or not.
