# 0.9 Slick0190: sprite sheet animation, part 2  (Page 6/7)

 Page 6 / 7

Figures in the middle group

The process of computing the horizontal position coordinate value continues in Listing 8 .

Listing 8 . Don't change position for middle group of sprite images.
```}else if(frame<2*oneThird){ //Sprite is stationary. Don't change position```

Listing 8 tests to determine if the current frame is in the middle group. If so, it causes the update method to return without changing the horizontal position coordinate value,thus allowing the sprite to remain in a stationary position.

Figures in the third group

The horizontal position values computed in Listing 9 make it appear that the sprite is running from right to left across the gamewindow.

This is one of those opportune times when it is appropriate to say that I will leave it as an exercise for the student to dust off their high-schoolalgebra books and figure out how the code in Listing 9 achieves the desired result.

Listing 9 . Run from right to left.
```}else if(frame<3*oneThird){ //Cause the sprite to turn around and start// moving to the left toward the starting point. //Reduce frame count by number of frames during// which the sprite wasn't moving. frame -= oneThird;//Compute the new position. spriteX = (2*oneThird - frame)*stepSize;}//end else if}//end update```

Listing 9 also signals the end of the update method.

## The render method

Now it's time to realize the benefit of all of the hard work that went into planning for and writing the code in the init and update methods. The code in the render method, which is shown in Listing 10 , is almost trivial.

Listing 10 . The render method.
```public void render(GameContainer gc, Graphics g) throws SlickException{g.setDrawMode(g.MODE_NORMAL); g.setBackground(Color.gray);animation.draw(spriteX,spriteY); }//end render}//end class Slick0190```

There is nothing left for the render method to do other than to send a message to the Animation object once during each iteration of the game loop asking it to draw the current frame.

Listing 10 signals the end of the render method, the end of the Slick0190 class, and the end of the program.

## Run the program

I encourage you to copy the code from Listing 11 . Compile the code and execute it,making changes, and observing the results of your changes. Make certain that you can explain why your changes behave as they do.

## Summary

In this module, you learned how to use objects of the SpriteSheet class and the Animation class to perform more complex sprite sheet animations than was the case in the previous module.

## What's next?

In the next module, you will learn how to develop a sprite class from which you can instantiate and animate swarms of sprite objects.

## Miscellaneous

This section contains a variety of miscellaneous information.

what is Nano technology ?
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
Damian
Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
Renato
What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
Joe
anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?
research.net
kanaga
sciencedirect big data base
Ernesto
Introduction about quantum dots in nanotechnology
what does nano mean?
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
Bharti
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
absolutely yes
Daniel
how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well
Maciej
Abigail
for teaching engĺish at school how nano technology help us
Anassong
Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
NANO
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
NANO
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
s.
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
SUYASH
What is lattice structure?
of graphene you mean?
Ebrahim
or in general
Ebrahim
in general
s.
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
