I want to change to the next scene by clicking the label.

My code:

extends Label

var current_scene = null

func _ready():

func onStartguiinput(event):
if (event is InputEventMouse && event.pressed && event.labelindex == 1):
if get
tree().change_scene("res://assets/Greetings.tscn") != OK:
print("An unexpected error occured when trying to switch to the Greetings scene")

Sorry, what specifically is the issue with your code?

Well, i used this code to use the label to change my scene, but it doesn't work when I pressed the label, so I need help on making it work.

You could assign the left mouse button an action in the InputMap and check for that action or use this code:

if event is InputEventMouseButton and event.button_index == BUTTON_LEFT and event.pressed:

I don't have a mouse, so what should I do?

Wait, you don't have a mouse? Then how do you click on the label?

With a track pad. But even when I get a mouse, I still couldn't change the scene when pressing the label.

Okay, when I say mouse, I don't mean the actual device - I just mean anything you can click with. It should work with a trackpad.

Alright. Though, I found out that I can change scenes by using the timer. Still, thanks for helping me.

really simple.

just get an button and set it over your label.
then make the button invisible like so.(attach script to it)

func _ready():
self.visible = false

then connect the button on "button down" with the Spatialnode ,attach again first a script to it,and write in the new func:

the second time, attach the script to the Spatial

As another option if you want to use a Label only, you can check if the mouse click is inside the Label area as follows:

func _input(event: InputEvent) -> void:
    if event is InputEventMouseButton and event.button_index ==1 and event.is_pressed():
        var mouse:Vector2=get_global_mouse_position()
        var label: Label=get_tree().root.get_node("Node2D/MyLabel")
        var rect:Rect2=Rect2(label.rect_position, label.rect_size * 2) 
        if rect.has_point(mouse):
            print("Clicked Label. Change Scene here")
