    Hello everyone.

    I need to disable a specific button, at a certain moment I want to prevent the player from having any action when pressing a certain button, but I'm not sure how to do this, could you help me?

    Copied from Unity documentation. There already is an existing feature by Unity to let you change whether a button in interactable.

    https://docs.unity3d.com/540/Documentation/ScriptReference/UI.Selectable-interactable.html

    Code (CSharp):
    1. using UnityEngine;
    2. using System.Collections;
    3. using UnityEngine.UI; // required when using UI elements in scripts
    4.  
    5. public class Example : MonoBehaviour {
    6.  
    7.     public Button startButton;
    8.     public bool playersReady;
    9.  
    10.  
    11.     void Update ()
    12.     {
    13.         // checks if the players are ready and if the start button is useable
    14.         if (playersReady == true && startButton.interactable == false)
    15.         {
    16.             //allows the start button to be used
    17.             startButton.interactable = true;
    18.         }
    19.     }
    20. }
