Lecture 07

While{} blocK:

int a = 0;
int b = 1;
int sum = a+b;
 
while (sum < 10000) { // some boolean test!
  println(sum);
  a = b;
  b = sum;
  sum = a+b;
}

Trigger an event periodically:

int poopPeriod = 3000;
int lastPoopTime = 0;
 
void setup(){ 
}
 
void draw(){
 if ((millis() - lastPoopTime) >= poopPeriod) {
   poop();
 }
}
 
void poop(){
  // only printed output for now; visuals are up to you
  println("At " + millis() + ", I pooped"); 
  lastPoopTime = millis(); 
}

Function that returns a value:

void setup(){
  int mySum = addThreeInts (3,8,11); 
  float f = cos(4.0);
  println("My Sum = " + mySum); 
}
 
int addThreeInts (int a, int b, int c){
  int sum = a + b + c;
  return sum;
}

Interpolation (Blurred Integrator / “Zeno’s Interpolation”) to the Mouse

float px = 0;
float py = 0;
 
void setup(){
  size(400,400);
}
 
void draw(){
  background(127);
 
  float A = 0.95;
  float B = 1.0-A;
  px = A*px + B*mouseX;
  py = A*py + B*mouseY;
  ellipse (px,py, 30,30);
}

Damping a variable down to zero / Triggering an event sequence

float py, px;
float vy, vx;
void setup(){
  size(400,400);
  initiateMovementSequence();
}
 
void draw(){
  float grayColor = map(px, 0,width, 0,255);
  background(grayColor);
  py += vy;
  px += vx;
  vy *= 0.96;
  vx *= 0.96;
  ellipse(px,py, 30,30);
}
 
void mousePressed(){
  // clicking resets the action
  initiateMovementSequence();
}
 
void initiateMovementSequence(){
  px = width/2;
  py = height/2;
  vx = random(-5,5);
  vy = random(-5,5);
}

Simple Pong

float px, py;
float vx, vy;
float diam = 80;
 
 
void setup(){
  size(400,350);
  px = width/2;
  py = height/2;
  vx = random(-10,10);
  vy = random(-10,10);
}
 
 
void draw(){
  background(127);
  px += vx;
  py += vy;
  if ((px < (diam/2)) || (px > (width - diam/2))){
    vx = -vx;
  }
  if ((py < (diam/2)) || (py > (height - diam/2))){
    vy = -vy;
  }
 
  ellipse(px,py, 80,80);
}
 
void mousePressed(){
  // clicking the mouse randomizes direction
  vx = random(-10,10);
  vy = random(-10,10);
}
