turtle.setpos() and turtle.goto() functions in Python
  • Last Updated : 17 Jul, 2020

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.setpos()

This method is used to move the turtle to an absolute position. This method has Aliases: setpos, setposition, goto.

Syntax: turtle.setpos(x, y=None) or turtle.setposition(x, y=None) or turtle.goto(x, y=None)

Parameters:

x: x coordinate of a Vec2D-vector 



y: y coordinate of a Vec2D-vector

Below is the implementation of above method with some examples :

Example 1:

Python3




# import package
import turtle 
  
# forward turtle by 100
turtle.forward(100)
  
# stamp the turtle shape
turtle.stamp()
  
# set the position by using setpos()
turtle.up()
turtle.setpos(-50,50)
turtle.down()
  
# forward turtle by 100
turtle.forward(100)
  
# stamp the turtle shape
turtle.stamp()
  
# set the position by using goto()
turtle.up()
turtle.goto(-50,-50)
turtle.down()
  
# forward turtle by 100
turtle.forward(100)

Output :

Example 2 :

Python3




# import package
import turtle 
  
# method to raw pattern
# of circle with rad radius
def draw(rad):
      
    # draw circle
    turtle.circle(rad)
      
    # set the position by using setpos()
    turtle.up()
    turtle.setpos(0,-rad)
    turtle.down()
  
# loop for pattern
for i in range(5):
    draw(20+20*i)
