Example text

Creating Your First Scratch Application Scratch application projects are made up of objects called sprites. A sprite is a two-dimensional bitmap image drawn on a transparent background. Sprites can be moved around and made to interact with one another. Sprites consist of three primary components, as outlined here: n Scripts. Collections of code blocks that outline the programming logic that controls the operation of sprites. n Costumes. Images that are used to display the sprite on an area of the Scratch IDE, referred to as the stage.

However, a much faster and easier option is to right-click on a free area within the scripts area and then click on the clean-up option located in the popup menu that is displayed. In response, Scratch will realign all of your scripts for you. Adding Costumes A sprite can have one or more costumes, allowing it to change its appearance as an application executes. A sprite must have at least one costume. 15 shows a sprite that has two costumes. Each costume is assigned a unique name and number (displayed just to the left of the costume’s image).

To do so, overtype the text displayed at the top of the sprite area with the word Cat. Once you change the name assigned to the sprite, the name change will automatically be reflected in the sprite list. If you look at the entry for the sprite in the sprite list, you should see a picture of the sprite, its new name, and the number of costumes currently assigned to the sprite (you can click on the Costumes tab at the top of the sprite area to view the sprite’s costumes). ’’ Let’s begin by clicking on the Sound button located at the top of the code block area.
