One basic idea in coding is that commands are executed sequentially (in order) until a loop or branch is reached.

CREATE BUTTONS The Command Center is a good place to test out commands as you develop a program. But a real program or app needs a graphical user interface (also called a GUI) with buttons, pictures, and menus for people to use your computer program. Instead of asking users to type in a command such as setbg “lime, give them a button to press! Make a button for changing background color as follows: 1 From the toolbar, click the Create a Button button and then click anywhere in the workspace. 2 In the Button dialog box, fill in the following information: »» Label: Type Lime Back »» Instruction: Type setbg “lime »» Leave everything else the same.
