Have you considered having a menu bar with colors and line sizes.  The users can select the color and line size which will change your program to use those settings.


All the best,

Subject: Re: [Newbies] Project on squeak language


I have already implemented the canvas on which we draw, the possibility of drawing with the brush but with only a single color and a single size, a capacity to erase what we have already drawn with the "Clear" command on the custom menu code. 
So, i'd like to add the possibility of changing the color and the size of the brush presenting the choices of color and brush size.

The differents methods are:


extent: aPoint
    | newForm |
    super extent: aPoint.
    newForm := Form extent: self extent depth: 16.
    newForm fillColor: Color veryLightGray.
    form ifNotNil: [form displayOn: newForm].
    form := newForm.
    super initialize.
    self extent: 500 at 350.
drawOn: aCanvas
    aCanvas image: form at: bounds origin.
handlesMouseDown: evt
    ^ true     
mouseDown: evt
    brush := Pen newOnForm: form.
    brush roundNib: 3.
    brush color: Color red.
    lastMouse := evt cursorPoint - bounds origin.
    brush drawFrom: lastMouse to: lastMouse.
    self invalidRect:
    ((lastMouse - brush sourceForm extent corner:
    lastMouse + brush sourceForm extent)
    translateBy: bounds origin).
mouseMove: evt
    | p |
    p := evt cursorPoint - bounds origin.
    p = lastMouse ifTrue: [^ self].
     brush drawFrom: lastMouse to: p.
    self invalidRect: ((
        ((lastMouse min: p) - brush sourceForm extent) corner:
        ((lastMouse max: p) + brush sourceForm extent))
            translateBy: bounds origin).
    lastMouse := p.
addCustomMenuItems: aCustomMenu hand: aHandMorph
    super addCustomMenuItems: aCustomMenu hand: aHandMorph.
    aCustomMenu add: 'clear' action: #clear.
    form fillColor: Color veryLightGray.
    self changed.

"Class PaintMorph"

Morph subclass: #PaintMorph
    instanceVariableNames: 'form brush lastMouse'
    classVariableNames: ''
    poolDictionaries: ''
    category: 'Morphic-Fun'

PaintMorph new openInWorld.


Thank you in advance.

Sure. Just ask some specific questions - e.g. what you tried, what worked, what didn't etc.
