set (Sprite Property)

Set a value for a sprite property.

game.createSprite(0,0).set(LedSpriteProperty.X, 0);


  • property: the property of the Sprite you want to store a value for, like:

    • x - the horizontal location to set the sprite at on the LED screen (0-4)
    • y - the vertical location to set the sprite at on the LED screen (0-4)
    • direction - the direction in degrees for the sprite to go when the next move happens. The degree range is from -180 to 180.
    • brightness - how bright the LED sprite is. Completely dark is 0 and very bright is 255.
    • blink - how fast the sprite is will blink on and off. The blink rate is in milliseconds.
  • value: the a number value to set for the property.


Make an LED sprite move to random locations on the screen. Use button A to freeze and unfreeze the sprite while it’s moving. When the sprite is frozen, it will blink and dim to half brightness.

input.onButtonPressed(Button.A, function () {
    if (freeze) {
        sprite.set(LedSpriteProperty.Brightness, 255)
        sprite.set(LedSpriteProperty.Blink, 0)
    } else {
        sprite.set(LedSpriteProperty.Brightness, 128)
        sprite.set(LedSpriteProperty.Blink, 200)
    freeze = !(freeze)
let freeze = false
let sprite: game.LedSprite = null
sprite = game.createSprite(0, 0)
basic.forever(function () {
    if (!(freeze)) {
        sprite.set(LedSpriteProperty.X, randint(0, 4))
        sprite.set(LedSpriteProperty.Y, randint(0, 4))
