Today we're going to do a very simple Small Basic tutorial.
Boot up Small Basic, and let's get started!
Type this in:
GraphicsWindow.TItle = "Hello Moon: The Program"
GraphicsWindow.Width = 320
GraphicsWindow.Height = 240
GraphicsWIndow.DrawImage("C:\Small Basic\backgroundbmp", 0, 0)
GraphicsWindow.BrushColor = "White"
GraphicsWindow.FontSize = 50
GraphicsWindow.DrawText(10, 120, "Hello Moon!")
Great. Except it will throw an error, because you don't have the image! Here's what you do...
1. Download this image (right-click and Save it):
2. Be sure to save it where you want it!
3. Then update the code to set the path in line 5 to the correct location of the background.bmp file on your computer!
4. Run it again!
That's it! Hello Moon! Wasn't that easy? Now, everyone can code!
Have a Small and Basic day!
