I've seen some people making threads on how to use dialog chat bubbles so I decided to make a tutorial!!!

Part 1: making that chat bubble appear above something!

select the part you want to talk in the explorer then insert a dialog into the part. Insert>Object>Dialog

Dialog properties:
ConversationDistance - how close you have to be to talk. Measured in studs.
InUse - true if NPC (non player character) is being talked to.
InitialPrompt - what the NPC first says when a player starts chatting to it.
Purpose - sets the icon in the dialog when NPC isn't chatting.
Tone - sets the color of the dialog

The rest are just global variables. Eg. Name, Parent, className...

Part 2: Choices!
If we just put a dialog that says one thing when you chat to it it wouldn't be that great. Why not make it more exciting by respond to what it says with a few options to choose from!

I will be introducing another instance type called DialogChoice.

Select the dialog and insert a DialogChoice instance. Insert>Object>DialogChoice

DialogChoice properties:
ResponseDialog - what the NPC says in reply to what the choice is.
UserDialog - the choice you see near the bottom-left of your screen.

The rest are global variables.

You can put more than 1 choice/reply within a dialog. And make choices inside choices!!!
1 last thing before I make a dialog shop example.
There is a special event for Dialog. It's .DialogChoiceSelected. It triggers when you click a choice. It's useful for quests and shops.

Part 3: Shop Example

Structure of the game:
---Base - Part
---Part - Part
----Dialog - Dialog
-----Script - Script
-----Weapons - DialogChoice
------Sword - DialogChoice
---Sword - Tool

tool = game.Lighting.Sword:Clone() -- sword tool

function onDialogChoiceSelected(player, DialogChoice) --triggers when someone chooses a choice
if DialogChoice.Name == "Sword" then
tool:Clone().Parent = player.Backpack


Rate and comment my tutorial!!!

Yes, I made a thread on the Scripting Helpers forum on roblox of this tutorial and it had some errors in the tutorial so I posted the fixed version here.
