2.1. User Input

The video below introduces how you can have a program ask the user questions and use the answers in your code.

Experiment with the techniques you see - I would recommend pausing periodically and trying to recreate the programs you see.

Checkpoint Exercises

Rectangle with specified size:

Try to make a program that asks the user for a height and a width and draws a rectangle with those dimensions. Your program will have to ask two separate questions

You will need to make your own variable and store the answer to the first question before you ask the second question. BYOB’s built in answer variable only remembers the last answer.

The say block is totally optional, it makes the sprite announce what it is drawing.
