How do you write an algorithm that animates a circle bouncing around a window. Using the change in x and y to control the movement. Using a loop and each time you go through the loop the x and y and move + or - 1. If the circle hits the edge then the sign changes to - from + or vice-versa.

Using the pygame library, this is fairly easy, here is an example. ------------------------ import sys, pygame pygame.init() size = width, height = 600, 400 speed = [20, 20] black = 0, 0, 0 screen = pygame.display.set_mode(size) ball = pygame.image.load("ball.gif") ballrect = ball.get_rect() while 1: for event in pygame.event.get(): if event.type == pygame.QUIT: sys.exit() ballrect = ballrect.move(speed) if ballrect.left < 0 or ballrect.right > width: speed = -speed if ballrect.top < 0 or ballrect.bottom > height: speed = -speed screen.fill(black) screen.blit(ball, ballrect) pygame.display.flip() ------------------------ Make sure you have an image (named ball.gif in this example) in the same directory as the script. Hope this helps, Tom
