XMARGIN = int((WINDOWWIDTH - BOARDWIDTH * BOXSIZE) / 2) TOPMARGIN = WINDOWHEIGHT - (BOARDHEIGHT * BOXSIZE) - 5
The program needs to calculate how many pixels are to the left and right side of the board to use later in the program.
WINDOWWIDTH is the total number of pixels wide the entire window is. The board is
BOARDWIDTH boxes wide and each box is
BOXSIZE pixels wide. If we subtract
BOXSIZE pixels from this for each of the boxes wide in the board (which is
BOARDWIDTH * BOXSIZE), we’ll have the size of the margin to the left and right of the board. If we divide this by
2, then we will have the size of just one margin. Since the margins are the same size, we can use
XMARGIN for either the left-side or right-side margin.
We can calculate the size of the space between the top of the board and the top of the window in a similar manner. The board will be drawn 5 pixels above the bottom of the window, so 5 is subtracted from
topmargin to account for this.
# R G B WHITE = (255, 255, 255) GRAY = (185, 185, 185) BLACK = ( 0, 0, 0) RED = (155, 0, 0) LIGHTRED = (175, 20, 20) GREEN = ( 0, 155, 0) LIGHTGREEN = ( 20, 175, 20) BLUE = ( 0, 0, 155) LIGHTBLUE = ( 20, 20, 175) YELLOW = (155, 155, 0) LIGHTYELLOW = (175, 175, 20) BORDERCOLOR = BLUE BGCOLOR = BLACK TEXTCOLOR = WHITE TEXTSHADOWCOLOR = GRAY COLORS = ( BLUE, GREEN, RED, YELLOW) LIGHTCOLORS = (LIGHTBLUE, LIGHTGREEN, LIGHTRED, LIGHTYELLOW) assert len(COLORS) == len(LIGHTCOLORS) # each color must have light color
The pieces will come in four colors: blue, green, red, and yellow. When we draw the boxes though, there will be a thin highlight on the box in a lighter color. So this means we need to create light blue, light green, light red, and light yellow colors as well.
Each of these four colors will be stored in tuples named
COLORS (for the normal colors) and
LIGHTCOLORS (for the lighter colors).
