Py5Surface.set_location()#

Set the Sketch’s window location.

Examples#

py5.run_sketch(block=False)
surface = py5.get_surface()
# move the sketch window to the upper left corner of the display
surface.set_location(0, 0)
# this sketch will hide itself and reappear elsewhere on your display.
def setup():
    global surface
    global visible
    surface = py5.get_surface()
    visible = True


def draw():
    global visible
    if py5.frame_count % 250 == 0:
        # this negates the visible variable
        visible = not visible
        if visible:
            surface.set_location(py5.random_int(py5.display_width),
                                 py5.random_int(py5.display_height))
        surface.set_visible(visible)

Description#

Set the Sketch’s window location. Calling this repeatedly from the draw() function may result in a sluggish Sketch. Negative or invalid coordinates are ignored. To hide a Sketch window, use Py5Surface.set_visible().

This method provides the same functionality as window_move().

Underlying Processing method: PSurface.setLocation

Signatures#

set_location(
    x: int,  # x-coordinate for window location
    y: int,  # y-coordinate for window location
    /,
) -> None
