I want to drag a member from members menu to Resource Path, and be able to preload it just like below:

extends Node

export (PackedScene) var wp

func _input(event):
    if event.is_action_pressed("click"):
        var new_wp = wp.instance()
        new_wp.position = get_viewport().get_mouse_position()

I'm not sure I completely understand your question. I created a custom scene which is just a Label, saved it. I then created an export var called customlabel and dragged that scene into it. Then i created the visual script and looked for mousedown action, upon which I would place an instance of the custom label at the position of the mouse click on the screen. See the screenshot below:

That is great, I will try, and also try that with get touch for android possible. Will test and share! Thanks

Thanks again

What do you mean by mouse_down (action)? I add it in editor but it has no use.


Project > Project Settings > Input Map -> Action -> type in name mousedown, hit Add
Now click the + next to the new entry in the list mouse
down, Select Mouse Button, choose the button you want, then click Add.

Thanks vic.the.developer! You are great at visual scripting!
