Introduction to greenfoot

  • Greenfoot uses 2 superclasses: “Scenarios.”

    • 1. World – The instance of this class becomes the world in which the actor objects do things.

    • 2. Actor – This class contains data properties and methods that allow for actor objects to exist in the instance of the world class.

    • (We will learn more about super and sub classes later…)

Introduction to greenfoot

If a class is striped, it needs to be compiled.


Introduction to greenfoot

You can right-click a class, to see its constructor. “Scenarios.”

Select the constructor, and then you can add an instance of the class to the world.

  • Adding objects to the world:

Shift-Click: Another way of adding objects is to click on the class, press shift, and click in the world.


Introduction to greenfoot

The Run button simply calls the Act method over and over again.

The Act button calls the Act Method. The objects in the world will do whatever they are programmed to do.

The speed at which the Run button calls the act method can be altered here.


Introduction to greenfoot

  • To see an object’s methods: “Scenarios.”

    • Right-Click an object in the world.

    • You can also execute those methods.

    • This is great for interactive testing.

  • Question: “Scenarios.”

    • Does the Crab class from the demo have a move( ) method defined in it?

  • Code that you used today: class:

    move( ); //This moves the object forward.

    turn(-12); //This turns the object -12 degrees

    if(Greenfoot.isKeyDown(“left”))

    {

    turn(12);

    } //This code turns the object whenever the left key is pressed down.

  • Opening Greenfoot Projects from class:www.classofcrow.com:

    • Mister Crow will be giving you incomplete Greenfoot projects (for now).

    • These will usually be found on the website in a zipped format.

    • “Zipped” means that a folder with files is compressed and zipped into ONE file.

    • You have to have a program like 7-zip to UNZIP those files. 7-Zip is free and it is already loaded on our computers.

    • Download the file  Right-click on it

    • Select “7-Zip”  Select “Extract Here”  The files and folder will be unzipped.


Introduction to greenfoot

  • Saving Greenfoot Projects for grading: class:

    • When you are finished with your project go to:

    • Scenario  “Save a copy as”

    • Name the folder:

      crow(period)_(ProjectNumber)_(LastNameFirstInitial)

    • For Example:

      crow3_121_SmithJ

    • This folder will go in the CLASS folder on the due date.
