group.add(createSprite(300, 200));
function draw() {
  background("white");
  drawSprites();
  if (mouseDown("leftButton")){
    group.setAnimationEach("alienPink_1");
  }
  else {
        group.setAnimationEach("alienBlue_1");
  }
}

Syntax

group.setAnimationEach(label)

Parameters

Name Type Required? Description
label String The name of an image or animation loaded in the Animation tab.

Returns

No return value. Changes output in the display after drawSprites() is called.

Tips

  • Groups of sprites all have the same functions and you use the dot notation (combining the name of the group, followed by a dot, with the function name) to call the function for that group of sprites.
  • Any changes to the properties of a sprite will not be seen until after drawSprites() is called.
