Animate a Ring
Problem Statement:
The pre-placed blocks animate the ring increasing and decreasing in size. Experiment with the code blocks and see what each part of the code does. Try slowing down the animation.
/* Code generated by RoboBlockly v2.0 */
#include <chplot.h>
double i;
double j;
CPlot plot;

plot.grid(PLOT_OFF);
plot.backgroundColor("white");
// we use the loop to create the animation
// the i loop is responsible for the first half
// the radius of the white circle decreases
// every time it loops
// change the "count i by 3"
// to change the speed of the animation
for(i = 1; i <= 16; i++) {
  plot.strokeColor("red");
  plot.fillColor("red");
  plot.circle(18, 18, 16);
  plot.strokeColor("white");
  plot.fillColor("white");
  plot.circle(18, 18, 16 - i);
  // without delay, you can't see the animation
  delaySeconds(0.03);
}
// the j loop decreases the size of the red ring
// by increasing the radius of the white circle
