Code Lesson

Over the last couple of weeks I have been speaking to teachers and some of the teachers have told me that some students find it difficult to reach some of the applications. I had been playing around with the applications and found the solution! There is a little bit of code inside all of the applications which needs adjusting.

If you are finding it difficult to reach the top corners of your screen or your application then all you need to do is find this code:

private float ScaleVector(int length, float position)
            float value = (((((float)length) / 1f) / 2f) * position) + (length / 2);
            if (value > length)

The figure which is in bold and italic will need to be changed to something like o.4f  in order to be more sensitive. So it now becomes:

            float value = (((((float)length) / 0.4f) / 2f) * position) + (length / 2);
            if (value > length)
