    • Introduction  „Greenfoot is a software tool designed to let beginners get experience with object-oriented programming. It supports development of graphical applications in the Java™ Programming Language“  Designed and implemented at the University of Kent and Deakin University  Copyright held by Poul Henriksen and Michael Koelling  More information at http://www.greenfoot.org  Part of the content of these slides is based on the Greenfoot Tutorial made by Michael Koelling, publicly accesible at the website Introduction to Greenfoot 3 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Outline  Visual Interface  Creating Objects  Interaction with Objects  Removing Objects  Objects‘ Action  Simulation „Run“  Scenario plane  Scenario turtleGraphics  Scenario ants  Scenario lunarlander Introduction to Greenfoot 4 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Visual Interface (scenario wombats) Introduction to Greenfoot 5 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Visual Interface  Consists of 3 main parts  The world – The large canvas that covers the majority of the window – Has a title e.g. WombatWorld – The enviroment („the world“) where objects exist  Class display – Contains all Java classes involved in the scenario – 3 groups: World, Actor and other classes  Execution controls – Controls the action of each object: the „Act“ button – Controls simulation: „Run“, „Pause“, slider – Resets the scenario Introduction to Greenfoot 6 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Creating Objects (1)  (Left-)Click on the Wombat or Leaf class to make it active  To create and place an object into the world : – Activate a class then shift+click somewhere in the World – Right-click a class (e.g. Wombat class) to open the class context menu, select the „New Wombat()“ item then click somewhere in the World Introduction to Greenfoot 7 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Creating Objects (2) Creating 3 objects and placing Class them into the World context menu Introduction to Greenfoot 8 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Interaction with Objects (1)  Methods of an object can directly be invoked  „A method is a single action that an object can perform“  Right-click on one object to show its (object) context menu, where you can select a method to ask the object to do „something“ turnleft() move() Introduction to Greenfoot 9 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Interaction with Objects (2)  The world where the wombats live (WombatWorld) is actually an object, too  But there may exist only one World object at a time  It functions as a container for Actor objects (e.g. Wombat, Leaf etc.)  Single method invocation is still possible for the World object; just right-click the title „WombatWorld“ and select a method from the menu Introduction to Greenfoot 10 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Interaction with Objects (3) populate() randomLeaves() Introduction to Greenfoot 11 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Interaction with Objects (4)  A method may have one or more parameters  You will be requested to give value(s) of the parameter(s) when you invoke such a method  Try the method setDirection() from a Wombat object or the method randomLeaves() from the WombatWorld  A method may also return one value (or reference to an object) if it is invoked  Try foundLeaf() or getLeavesEaten() from a Wombat object Introduction to Greenfoot 12 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Removing Objects (1)  An object can be removed by selecting item „Remove“ from the object context menu  Clicking the „Reset“ button or creating a new World object from the class context menu may remove all objects; however it actually depends on the constructor implementation of the World class  (*) Introduction to Greenfoot 13 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Removing Objects (2) Introduction to Greenfoot 14 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Objects‘ Action  Each Actor object has a special method called act()  Pressing the button „Act“ on the control panel means asking Greenfoot to execute act() method for all objects in the world  An object acts by doing „whatever it wants to do“ e.g.: – Wombats move forward, if they find a leaf in their path, they will eat it – Leaves do nothing  The action depends actually on how act() method is defined; that is, we can program object behaviors!! Introduction to Greenfoot 15 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Simulation „Run“  A scenario can be run by clicking the „Run“ button  This equivalent to clicking the „Act“ button over and over again very quickly  The slider next to the „Act“ and „Run“ buttons sets the „running/simulation“ speed  Make an experiment with scenario wombats – Click „Reset“ if you have already some objects – Select Populate() from the WombatWorld menu – Click „Run“ Introduction to Greenfoot 16 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Simulation „Run“ Running wombats scenario Introduction to Greenfoot 17 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Scenario plane (1)  Choose „Open ...“ from the „Scenario“ menu and select the plane scenario from the Greenfoot sample scenarios  Press the „Compile all“ button, if necessary  Instantiate a Plane object and place somewhere in the world  Run the scenario by pressing „Run“  Try to drag the ControlKnob object and observe the result Introduction to Greenfoot 18 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Scenario plane (2) Introduction to Greenfoot 19 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Scenario plane (3) Introduction to Greenfoot 20 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Scenario turtleGraphics (1)  Choose „Open ...“ from the „Scenario“ menu and select the turtleGraphics scenario from the Greenfoot sample scenarios  Press the „Compile all“ button, if necessary  Instantiate several turtle objects (CircleTurtle, SquareTurtle, FlowerTurtle and SpiralTurtle) and place somewhere in the world  Run the scenario by pressing „Run“  Observe the result Introduction to Greenfoot 21 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Scenario turtleGraphics (2) Introduction to Greenfoot 22 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Scenario ants (1)  Choose „Open ...“ from the „Scenario“ menu and select the ants scenario from the Greenfoot sample scenarios  Press the „Compile all“ button, if necessary  By default (standard Greenfoot 1.3 distribution) you will have several objects, which are actually formed together as the World object is created; these objects are instances of the class AntHill and Food; other objects will be created „on-the-fly“  Run the scenario by pressing „Run“  Observe the result Introduction to Greenfoot 23 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Scenario ants (2) Introduction to Greenfoot 24 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Scenario lunarlander (1)  Choose „Open ...“ from the „Scenario“ menu and select the lunarlander scenario from the Greenfoot sample scenarios  Press the „Compile all“ button, if necessary  By default you will have a Lander object, which is actually formed together as the World object is created  Now you are ready to play the game; run the scenario by pressing „Run“  The rocket thrust can be controlled by pressing the „down“ key on the keyboard Introduction to Greenfoot 25 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
    • Scenario lunarlander (2) Introduction to Greenfoot 26 Eueung Mulyana | kakihijau.googlepages.com
