Hi all, I have a tilemap where my character moves about and I have various HUD buttons etc.

Currently I click on a hud button but as the HUD sits above the tilemap, the character moves to where the button is.

How can I stop this happening so that the character only moves if I clicked on the Tilemap and nothing else?

Thanks so much

(here is my move code)

func _input(event):
if event.is_action_pressed('click'):
    if globals.activity == "walk":
        target_position = get_global_mouse_position()

You should use _unhandled_input() for your game objects, so that your GUI may consume events first.
