Roblox folder object is such an ideal thing for organizing and storing objects. You are not recommended to use folders to group Base Part as Model offer the range of useful functions for moving and manipulating the parts.
Roblox folders form part of the hierarchy of the game and are able to be accessed the same way as any object. For instance:
- Local folder=game:GetService(“ReplicatedStorage”):FindFirstChild(“Folder”)
- local subFolder = folder:FindFirstChild(“Folder”)
for your information, Roblox folders behave the same way as folders in the computer file system. It means they can also be parented to each other. Furthermore, they exist as the means for developers to better organize the multitude of objects required by the complex games.
Talking about Roblox folder, there are properties, functions, and events. Properties are inherited from instance: First, int DataCost. This one is the cost of saving the instance using data persistence. Second, Instance Parent. It determines the hierarchical parent of the Instance. Third, bool RobloxLocked. If it is true, the Instance and its descendants cannot be indexed or edited by the script or the local script and will throw the error if it is attempted. Fourth, string ClassName. This one is the read only string representing the class this Instance belongs to. Fifth, string Name. This one is the non unique identifier of the Instance. Sixth, bool Archivable. This one determines if the Instance can be cloned using the Instance: Clone or saved to file.
Functions are inherited from Instance: First, Instance FindFirstChild (string name, bool recursive). This one returns the first child of the Instance found with the given name. Second, Array Get Descendants (customluastate). This one returns the array containing all of the descendants of the instance. Third, Objects GetChilder. This one returns the array containing all of the Instance’s children. Fourth, void Destroy, this one sets the Instance Parent property to nil, locks the Instance Parent property, disconnects all connections and calls Destroy on all children. Fifth, RBXScriptSignal GetPropertyChangedSignal (string property). You can get the event that fired when the given property of the object changes. Sixth, string GetFullName. This one returns the string describing the ancestry of the Instance. Seventh, Instance FindFirstChildWhichIsA (string className, bool recursive). This one returns the first child of the Instance for whom Instance: IsA returns true for the given className. Eighth, bool IsAncestor (Instance descendant). This one returns true if the Instance is the ancestor of the given descendant. Ninth, bool IsDescendant0f (Instance ancestor). This one returns true if the Instance is the descendant of the given ancestor. Tenth, Instance FindFirstChild0fClass (string className). This one returns the first child of the Instance whose ClassName is equal to the given className. Eleventh, Instance FindFirstAncestorWhichIsA (string classNAme). This one returns the first ancestor of the Instance for whom Instance: IsA returns true for the given className.
