The turtle module provides turtle graphics primitives, in both object-oriented and procedure-oriented ways. Because it uses Tkinter for the underlying graphics, it needs a version of Python installed with Tk support.

turtle.dot()

This function is used to draw a circular dot with a particular size, with some color. If the size is not given, the maximum of pensize+4 and 2*pensize is used.

Syntax :

turtle.dot(size=None, *color)

Parameters:

Arguments       Description                                                   
sizean integer >= 1 (if given)
colora colorstring or a numeric color tuple

Below is the implementation of the above method with some examples :



Example 1 :

Python3




# import package
import turtle
  
  
# motion
turtle.forward(100)
  
# dot with
# 60 diameter
# yellow color
turtle.dot(60, color="yellow")

Output :

Example 2 :

Python3




# import package
import turtle
  
  
# delay the turtle work speed
# for better understandings
turtle.delay(500)
  
# hide the turtle
turtle.ht()
  
# some dots with diameter and color
turtle.dot(200, color="red")
turtle.dot(180, color="orange")
turtle.dot(160, color="yellow")
turtle.dot(140, color="green")
turtle.dot(120, color="blue")
turtle.dot(100, color="indigo")
turtle.dot(80, color="violet")
turtle.dot(60, color="white")
  
# write text
turtle.write("GFG", align="center",
             font=('Verdana', 12, 'bold'))
