function draw() {
  background("white");
  drawSprites();
  if (mouseDown("leftButton")){
    group.setHeightEach(20);
  }
  if (mouseDown("rightButton")){
    group.setHeightEach(100);
  }  
}

Syntax

group.setHeightEach(height)

Parameters

Name Type Required? Description
height Number The height of the sprites in pixels.

Returns

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

Tips

  • use group.setScaleEach to resize a sprite and keep the height to width ratio constant.
  • 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.
