I have created the paddle, ball, and bricks, but when I write the code to make paddle move nothing happens. I tried to write the ball movement code also but that doesn't work either. I think I am missing something. paddle movement code

I have tried many different things. When I move line 79 inside the while loop i Seg fault. I was however able to printf a statement if I put it just inside the while loop. I guess i'm a little lost as to how the code has to be written inside the while loop for this part and the subsequent.

I am also confused as to what the initBall and initPaddle codes need to return. should it keep the return NULL line or something else?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • about getting a segmentation fault, what are you returning from initPaddle?

of course you should be listening to mouse events (call getNextEvent) inside the loop because you wanna keep listening to mouse events again and again not only once.

  • Thanks I got it to work now I don't know why it wasn't working before.
