How to make Simple J2ME Game Canvas Navigation Controller.

October 2, 2010 Leave a comment

Howdy,This is the first blog post of mine.I’m highly interested on Java and opensource technology.This blog will talk about wide spread of Java related things.It’s all about my experiences.I have a thirsty about new technology and get use of them to create infinite solutions make the life easier.

This is about j2me Gaming.This post will guide you to make a simple game canvas controller.I do not  know the title or topic is fully correct or not but below i’ll show the thing that i mean to create.

Initial Requirements.

  1. Java installation JDK 1.5 or higher .
  2. sun java wireless toolkit-2.5.2_01.
  3. preferred IDE for your convenience.

Configurations.

  • Device Configuration CLDC-1.1
  • Device profile MIDP-2.0

Lets Start….

1.Create a class call  NavigationCanvas  and it extends GameCanvas class and implements the Runnable interface.

below show the source code for NavgationCanvas class.

import javax.microedition.lcdui.Graphics;

import javax.microedition.lcdui.Image;

import javax.microedition.lcdui.game.GameCanvas;

import javax.microedition.lcdui.game.Sprite;

/**

*/

public class NavigationCanvas extends GameCanvas implements Runnable {

private boolean isPlay;                 // Game Loop runs when isPlay is true

private long delay;                         // To give thread consistency

private int currentX, currentY;         // To hold current position of the ‘X’

private int width;                      // To hold screen width

private int height;                     // To hold screen height

private Image facesImage;

private Sprite facesSprite;      // Constructor and initialization

public NavigationCanvas()

{

super(true);

width = getWidth();

height = getHeight();

currentX = width / 2;

currentY = height / 2;

delay = 20;

}

// Automatically start thread for game loop

public void start(){

                  isPlay = true;

                  Thread t = new Thread(this);

                   t.start();

}

public void stop(){

              isPlay = false;

}

// Main Game Loop

public void run(){

              Graphics g = getGraphics();

              while (isPlay == true)

{

input();

            drawScreen(g);

try

     {

              Thread.sleep(delay);

      } catch (InterruptedException ie)

        {

        }

      }

}

// Method to Handle User Inputs

private void input()

{

       int keyStates = getKeyStates();

       // Left

         if ((keyStates & LEFT_PRESSED) != 0)

         {

        currentX = Math.max(0, currentX – 1);

         }

      // Right

      if ((keyStates & RIGHT_PRESSED) != 0)

       {

        if (currentX + 5 < width)

{

currentX = Math.min(width, currentX + 1);

}

}

// Up

if ((keyStates & UP_PRESSED) != 0)

{

currentY = Math.max(0, currentY – 1);

}

// Down

if ((keyStates & DOWN_PRESSED) != 0)

{

if (currentY + 10 < height)

{

currentY = Math.min(height, currentY + 1);

}

}

}

// Method to Display Graphics

private void drawScreen(Graphics g)

{

g.setColor(0xffffff);

g.fillRect(0, 0, getWidth(), getHeight());

g.setColor(0x0000ff);

g.drawString(“X”, currentX, currentY, Graphics.TOP | Graphics.LEFT);

flushGraphics();

}

}

This clsaa is the main midlet that start the application.

import javax.microedition.lcdui.Display;

import javax.microedition.midlet.*;

/**

* @author kalpa

*/

public class Navigation extends MIDlet

{

private Display display;

public void startApp()

{

display = Display.getDisplay(this);

NavigationCanvas gameCanvas = new NavigationCanvas();

gameCanvas.start();

display.setCurrent(gameCanvas);

}

public void pauseApp()

{

}

public void destroyApp(boolean unconditional)

{

destroyApp(true);

notifyDestroyed();

}

}

This will give you a controllable cross.

You can see the code in below vedio also 🙂
