Lesson 14, Unit 3


Student wants the Click Me to be on the screen until the mouse moves. I have included her code. I don’t know how to tell her to write the code in order for the Click me to disappear once the mouse moves on the screen.


Hi Nicole,
It sounds like the student’s current problem is finding a way to make text disappear (for good) once the user moves the mouse. You can do this by using a boolean (true/false) variable that just keeps track of whether the mouse has moved yet. If it hasn’t, draw the text. Here’s an example:

You could take it further by adding an else clause to the second conditional statement in my code. This would provide a place to add more instructions about what to draw after that initial movement has occurred.
I hope this helps!
