Issue with coordinates in the App Lab


My students wish that the coordinates would always show up on the screen so they can program locations more easily. Apparently the coordinates show when the screen is blank but when their pictures are displaying the coordinates don’t show.


@vfiddes I have asked for this in the past too… I think it has to do with how App Lab works overall and from an engineering perspective, it is more difficult than I thought it would be to get the numbers to show up after the program is done running. I will check again that this is still the case.

I just have students put their finger on where they want something to be, then re-set the screen and get the coordinates at that point. Sometimes they have programs that are REALLY long to run, in which case we talk about testing out a smaller part in another space or commenting out a chunk of code so that the part they want to focus on only runs.
