    Why isn't this program working?

    I put the following into textedit on mac and saved as an html doc. When I tried to open, it is a blank screen. It is supposed to draw a car and have it move across.

    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    // position of the car
    var x = 11;
    var draw = function() {
        background(252, 255, 214);
        // draw the car body
        fill(255, 0, 115);
        rect(x, 200, 100, 20);
        rect(x + 15, 178, 70, 40);
        // draw the wheels
        fill(77, 66, 66);
        ellipse(x + 25, 221, 24, 24);
        ellipse(x + 75, 221, 24, 24);
        x = x + 10;
    Thank you!

    First of all, I suspect that you've omitted an external JavaScript file that contains all of the drawing functions. There's certainly quite a bit of additional code that's missing as well since there's nothing that would animate the display or anything that would provide a place for it to be drawn.

    HTML is not complete, you need a head and a body and your using Canvas is I am not mistaken, therefore you need to have a canvas object to refer to and external scripting as suggested above.
    If your post falls off the page, bump it. ...
    Please remember to wrap any code you have in forum tags:-

    [CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...
