Png" ); Note that the Return (Enter) control key in openFrameworks is denoted as OF_KEY_RETURN. All other control keys begin with OF_KEY_ too. For example, OF_KEY_LEFT means the left cursor key. The ofSaveScreen function saves the screen content to a file. png, located in the bin/data folder of the project. If you want to save screenshots to files with different names, the simplest way to achieve it is to use a random number generator to choose filenames. png. This code is based on using the ofRandom(0, 1000) function, which generates floats from 0 to 1000 (and the result is strictly less than 1000).

At first, set countX to 1. Then, only one primitive will be drawn in the center of the screen. Now, adjust all controls in the Primitive group and explore how they affect the primitive's shape and color clarity. 2. Now, increase the value of countX to 30 or more, and set non-zero values for stepX and twistX. Then, a stripe pattern will be generated (we discussed such patterns in the previous chapter). Now change shiftY and rotate and explore how it affects the geometry of the resulting pattern.

When stepX is zero, you will get a circular pattern, that is, a pattern obtained by a primitive rotating around some point. 899998. Playing with the project, very soon you will notice that it would be desirable to have an autosave feature, which automatically restores the last state of GUI controls when the project restarts. Let's do it now! Implementing the autosave feature Autosaving can be implemented by saving the GUI state to a file when the project ends, and loading the GUI state from this file on project startup.
