I have a Button inside a structure like this:
World > YSort > Player > Camera > CanvasLayer > Button
A script is attached to it and inside this script I try to reference the button by:var this_button = get_node("YSort/Player/Camera2D/CanvasLayer/CombItemButton") inside the ready() function
Whenever I start my project it crashes with the error message:
E 0:00:02.559 get
node: Node not found: YSort/Player/Camera2D/CanvasLayer/Button.
<C++ Error> Condition "!node" is true. Returned: __null
<C++ Source> scene/main/node.cpp:1381 @ get_node() @ _ready()

Next I tried to get the button by.
Unfortunately this holds the same result and as I just started with godot I am kind of out of alternative solutions I can come up with.
I would gladly appreciate any attemt to help me out.

well ....┬┤for the first issue ... its surely the wrong path. when both scripts are under the same parent it would be get_node("../CombItemButton")

For the second issue ... gettree().getroot().find_node("Button",true,false)
you have to enable recursive search and set owner false.

Well I copied the path from the buttons right click in the editor. It worked for everything else, but this time it did not.

I' ll try out your suggestion. Thank you.
