The Size block is a Looks block and a Reporter block. The block holds its sprite's size. This block can be displayed as a Stage monitor.

Example Uses

The block is not commonly used; although many projects use the Set Size to () block, rarely do they need to know a sprite's current size. Usually a change in size is pre-planned, such as in animations.

Some common uses are:

  • Math tools and formulas
  • 3 dimensional scenes where points are partly based on size values
  • Changing an effect based on the size
  • Bouncing an object (from a bird's eye view)

To implement the fourth, the following script can be used:

when flag clicked
set size to (100)%
repeat (10)
change size by ((size) / (10))
wait (0.1) secs
repeat (10)
change size by (((size) / (10)) * (-1))
wait (0.1) secs

//to set it.
