Why use Animated Text?
The Animated Text extension is developed by Scratch team in Scratch Lab. We introduce it to Gandi IDE.
You can use it as a text engine to bring words to life with colors, fonts, and animations.
Functions and Definitions
Use the sprite to show the text.
When a sprite runs this block, it will hide and the text will show on the stage.
Show an animated text.
There are three options: - type - Rainbow - zoom
Hide the text and show the sprite.
Set the font of the text.
There are seven options: - Sans Serif - Serif - Handwriting - Marker - Curly - Pixel - random font: Pick a random font from the list.
Set the text color.
You could adjust the color with the color picker, or you can put a HEX code into the input box.
Set the width and align style of the text.
There are three options: - left - center - right
The width of the text is not the length of a string. It is the width of the text on the stage.
There is an invisible text-box on the stage. If you change the size of the sprite, the size of characters will be changed but the size of the text-box will not be changed.
For example, the width of text has been set to 200. Show ‘Welcome to my project!’ on the stage.
Set the size to 100.
Set the size to 200.
