Prepare[edit]

Create a new Scenes shell project within your Experiences directory:

ty-cam@codermerlin:~$  cd ~/Experiences
ty-cam@codermerlin:~/Experiences$  git clone https://github.com/TheCoderMerlin/ScenesShellBasic W1502


Enter the Sources/ScenesShell directory of the new project:

ty-cam@codermerlin:~/Experiences$  cd W1502/Sources/ScenesShell/


Start button green arrow
Run the program.
ty-cam@codermerlin:~/Experiences/W1502/Sources/ScenesShell$  run


Ensure that you are logged on to the wiki. Then, click on the Tools menu followed by right-clicking on IGIS and selecting the menu item Open in New Window or Open in New Tab.

You'll know you're successful if you see the title bar change to "Coder Merlin: IGIS". (The browser window will be blank because we haven't added any graphics yet.)

Experiment[edit]

Stop button red ex
Stop the running program.

Return to the console and press CONTROL-C


Open the file Background.swift in emacs.

Add a new method (below init) as follows:

    override func setup(canvasSize:Size, canvas:Canvas) {
        let rect = Rect(topLeft:Point(x:100, y:50), size:Size(width:200, height:300))
        let rectangle = Rectangle(rect:rect)
        let fillStyle = FillStyle(color:Color(.blue))
        canvas.render(fillStyle, rectangle)
    }

Remember to save the file, then suspend emacs.

Predefined color names may be found here: CSS Color Keywords, or, colors may be created by their RGB values using the constructor:

Color(red:UInt8, green:UInt8, blue:UInt8)


Start button green arrow
Run the program and refresh the browser page.

Observe, Ponder, and Journal : Section 1
  1. What do you observe?
  2. Is the rectangle wider than it is tall or taller than it is wide? Why?
  3. Is the rectangle filled or only an outline? Why?
  4. What color is the rectangle? Why is it that specific shade rather than a similar color?


Stop button red ex
Stop the running program.


Let's stroke the rectangle in green instead of filling it. Interrupt the running program and then resume emacs and edit the setup function so it appears as follows:

    override func setup(canvasSize:Size, canvas:Canvas) {
        let rect = Rect(topLeft:Point(x:100, y:50), size:Size(width:200, height:300))
        let rectangle = Rectangle(rect:rect, fillMode:.stroke)
        let strokeStyle = StrokeStyle(color:Color(.green))
        canvas.render(strokeStyle, rectangle)
    }

Remember to save the file, then suspend emacs.

Observe, Ponder, and Journal : Section 2
  1. What do you observe?
  2. Is the rectangle filled or only an outline? Why?
  3. What color is the rectangle? Why is it that specific shade rather than a similar color?


Stop button red ex
Stop the running program.


Let's thicken the stroke line. Interrupt the running program and then resume emacs and add the following lines so that the entire function appears as:

    override func setup(canvasSize:Size, canvas:Canvas) {
        let rect = Rect(topLeft:Point(x:100, y:50), size:Size(width:200, height:300))
        let rectangle = Rectangle(rect:rect, fillMode:.stroke)
        let strokeStyle = StrokeStyle(color:Color(.green))
        let lineWidth = LineWidth(width:5)
        canvas.render(strokeStyle, lineWidth, rectangle)
    }

Remember to save the file, then suspend emacs.

Start button green arrow
Run the program and refresh the browser page.

Observe, Ponder, and Journal : Section 3
  1. What do you observe?
  2. How has the appearance of the rectangle changed from the previous section? Why?


Stop button red ex
Stop the running program.

Finally, let's both stroke and fill simultaneously. Interrupt the running program and then resume emacs and add the following lines so that the entire function appears as:

    override func setup(canvasSize:Size, canvas:Canvas) {
        let rect = Rect(topLeft:Point(x:100, y:50), size:Size(width:200, height:300))
        let rectangle = Rectangle(rect:rect, fillMode:.fillAndStroke)
        let fillStyle = FillStyle(color:Color(.green))
        let strokeStyle = StrokeStyle(color:Color(.blue))
        let lineWidth = LineWidth(width:5)
        canvas.render(fillStyle, strokeStyle, lineWidth, rectangle)
    }

Remember to save the file, then suspend emacs.

Observe, Ponder, and Journal : Section 4
  1. What do you observe?
  2. How has the appearance of the rectangle changed from the previous section? Why?


Stop button red ex
Stop the running program.

Before beginning the exercises, remove the above code and then recreate your skyscrapers (and only your skyscrapers) from the previous experience. (You may copy/paste the required code from W1501 Introduction to Objects.)

Exercises[edit]

ExercisesIcon.png
Exercises
  •  J1502  Create a journal and answer all questions. Be sure to include all sections of the journal, properly formatted.
  • Continuing from your existing three skyscrapers:
    1. Color the sky and ground
    2. Color the body of each skyscraper in a different color
    3. Color various aspects of your skyscraper (e.g. windows, doors) in different colors
