What is the Trail? And What is it Good For?

Ever wanted to leave a mark on the world? Or maybe just debug your program, and couldn’t remember where your robot was at each turn?

In CoderZ there is an option in which your robot leaves a trail behind it, so you can draw geometric shapes, create beautiful artwork or debug your code.


How do I leave a trail?

Simply click on the Trail icon ic_gesture_black_24dp_2x.png  located in the simulation toolbar, just above the simulation window. 

Once pressed, your robot will leave a white line behind it. Click again to turn it off. 

Cool, so can I also program my robot to leave a Trail?

Excellent question, Yes you can.
Using the Simulation programing blocks, you can turn the trail on/off, reset it and even choose its color!
