Help with making ddr in java for a school project

All you have to do is implement KeyListener and add it to the frame.

Here's how to do it:

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.util.Random;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.Graphics;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.ImageIcon;
import java.awt.Color;
import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
import java.awt.event.ActionListener;
import java.awt.event.KeyListener;
import javax.swing.JPanel;
import javax.swing.Timer;

//add implements KeyListener
public class App extends JPanel implements KeyListener {

    //changing these values will change the size of the game, while still remaining functional
    //within the size limit specified.
    static int windowWidth = 525;8
    static int windowHeight = 400;
    JLabel label1 = new JLabel("Test");
    int randNumb = 0;
    int squareWidth = 60;
    int squareHeight = 60;
    double x = 0, y = 0, velX = 0, velY = 0;
    int squareYLocation = -squareHeight;
    private ImageIcon lpp;
    private ImageIcon upp;
    private ImageIcon dpp;
    private ImageIcon rpp;
    

    boolean numberCreated = false;
    static boolean gameRunning = false;

    //generates a random Y value inside the window for the square to spawn at
    public void generateRandomNumber() {
        lpp = new ImageIcon ("r.png");
        upp = new ImageIcon ("u.png");
        dpp = new ImageIcon ("d.png");
        rpp = new ImageIcon ("l.png");
        Random rand = new Random();
        randNumb = rand.nextInt(5);
        numberCreated = true;
    }

    //paints a black screen, then paints a rectangle on top of the black screen
    public void paint(Graphics g) {
        g.setColor(Color.white);
        g.fillRect(0, 0, windowWidth, windowHeight);
        g.setColor(Color.black);

I'm tryinh to make ddr in java as a school assignment. I've made a key listener and everything, but when i press the keys that activate their respective method, nothing happens

 

Thanks in advance

Thanks in advance

Put it in code tags please, much easier for us to help you when you do that. theres a pinned sticky thread at the top of this subform for more info. either that or it just looks really goofy on my system lol

Much better, Now hopefully someone who knows java can help you because to be honest I cant get a good grasp of it.

you've got no listener, you throw the event but there's no one to take care of it.

The fast way to do this is to add this code to main:

KeyListener keyListener=new KeyListener(){
            @Override
            public void keyTyped(KeyEvent ke) {
                
            }

            @Override
            public void keyPressed(KeyEvent ke) {
                
            }

            @Override
            public void keyReleased(KeyEvent ke) {
                
            }
            
};
frame.add(keyListener)

and get rid of the key events you've got below.

 

This I can't remember for sure, but you might need to add the keyListener to the game object instead of the frame. Try one of them and if it does not work try the other one


The best way to measure the quality of a piece of code is "Oh F*** "s per line
