Cut And Paste Code For Lesson 14


This week we'll look at how to do an animation with rectangles, much like we did before
HOWEVER we'll use object oriented code which is much easier to read!

Rectangle animation.  How about adding a loop?:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<style>
#container {
  width: 400px;
  height: 400px;
  position: relative;
  background: yellow;
}
#animate {
  width: 50px;
  height: 50px;
  position: absolute;
  background-color: red;
}
</style>
<body>
<p>
<button onclick="myMove()">Click Me</button>
</p>
<div id ="container">
<div id ="animate"></div>
</div>
<script>
function myMove() {
  var elem = document.getElementById("animate");   
  var pos = 0;
  var id = setInterval(frame, 5);
  function frame() {
    if (pos == 350) {
      clearInterval(id);
    } else {
      pos++;
      elem.style.top = pos + 'px';
      elem.style.left = pos + 'px';
    }
  }
}
</script>
</body>
</html>
