2. Desktop Icon

3. 1.1 Getting Started World Class Diagram Execution Controls

4. 1.2 Objects and Classes Right Click on Wombat Drag to World Click New Wombat()

5. Exercise 1.1

6. 1.3 Interacting with Objects Right Click on the Wombat Invoke the Move method

7. 1.4 Return Types

8. Exercise 1.3

9. Exercise 1.3

10. Exercise 1.4

11. 1.5 Parameters

12. Exercise 1.5

13. Exercise 1.5

14. Exercise 1.5 2 1 0 3

15. Exercise 1.5 Parameter > 3 Does Nothing

16. Exercise 1.5 Non-Integer Returns Error

17. 1.6 Greenfoot Execution

18. Exercise 1.6

19. Exercise 1.6 Wombat Moves toward the Leaves

20. Exercise 1.6 Wombat Moves to Leaves

21. Example 1.7 Wombat Eats Leaf

22. Exercise 1.8

23. Exercise 1.8 The >Act Execution Control Affects All the Wombats

24. Exercise 1.9 Wombat Runs Around the Edge of the World

25. Exercise 1.9 • Act Method • If we’re sitting on a leaf, eat the leaf • Otherwise, if we can move forward, move forward • Otherwise, turn left

26. 1.7 A Second Example

27. 1.8 Understanding the Class Diagram World Class is always there in Greenfoot scenarios, it is built-in. Space represents a specific world for this scenario Arrows show relationships Explosion and Mover are subclasses of Actor Bullet, Rocket, and Asteroid are subclasses of Mover. Vector is a helper class

28. 1.9 Playing with Asteroids Start Playing by Creating Some Actor Objects (Objects of the Subclass of Actor). Create Objects for Rocket, Bullet, Asteroid, and Explosion

29. Exercise 1.10 Right Click on the Object

30. Exercise 1.10 Click on setGunReloadTime and Type 5

31. Exercise 1.11 Right Click on the Object and Select Inspect

32. Exercise 1.11 Right Click on the Object and Select Inspect

33. Exercise 1.12 Right Click on the Object and Select getSpeed ( )

34. Exercise 1.12

35. Exercise 1.13

36. Exercise 1.14 Right Click on the Object and Select setSize(int Size) and Set the Size to 256

37. 1.10 Source Code Right Click on the Class and Select Open editor

38. Source Code for Rocket

39. Exercise 1.15 Change gunReloadTime from 20 to 5

40. Exercise 1.15

41. Exercise 1.15 Class Changed Class Compiled

42. 1.11 Summary In this chapter, we have seen what Greenfoot scenarios can look like and how to interact with them. We have seen how to create objects and how to communicate with these objects by invoking their methods. Some methods are commands to objects, while other methods return information about the object. Parameters are used to provide additional information to methods, while return values pass information back to the caller.
