How to Use Multiple Screens on PyGame?
In this article, we are going to know how to use multiple screens on PyGame.
Multiple screens are one of the best features of so many apps and games. This feature of an app or game allows users to navigate from one tab to another tab of the game within the same window and screen. This flexible way of moving within the game environment is easily seen as navigating from the game menu tab to the control bar of a game.
The same and lot easier approach is also available in PyGame of Python. Thus by using PyGame one can use multiple screens on PyGame. This helps the user to generate a more flexible and seamless way to switch from one screen to another screen via Python.
Prerequisite Libraries to be installed:
Execute below command in command prompt to install PyGame library.
pip install PyGame
Geek tries to develop a game in PyGame and he wants that in his game he can navigate from the menu tab to the control tab within the same window and screen. In such a case he wants the functionality of multiple screens of PyGame.
Step 1: Import the modules and libraries.
import PyGame as py
Step 2: Screen class for a window having the function of updating the screen while navigating from menu tab to control tab and vice-versa.
Step 3: Navigation button class that will take all the operation or navigation of one tab to another tab and will declare the button that took the real operation of capturing the mouse event. Calling of updating screen function and setting up of button located in the respective tab.
Step 4: Calling some of the important function before declaring the main while loop. Like initializing the PyGame and system font, creating the object of screen for menu tab and control tab.
Step 5: Creating main while loop for the multiscreen tab in PyGame in Python.
Below is the complete implementation
