Show Monitor ()

Category Data
Type Stack
Introduced in 2.0 alpha
Removed in 2.0 beta

The Show Monitor () block was a Data block and a Stack block. The block showed the specified Variable's or list's Stage monitor. Both variables and lists showed in this block, but the variables were always shown first, and each group was sorted by creation time.

This block was planned to replace Show Variable () with the release of Scratch 2.0, as it could show lists as well. It was later separated into a block for variables, and a block for lists.

Example Uses

In projects that use variables' stage monitors to display things, the displays may have to hide and show at times — with the Hide Monitor () block, this could be done.

Some popular uses could have been:

  • Displaying statistics at the end of a game
  • Toggle sliders in a simulation
  • Displaying save/load codes
  • Showing a console
