01 - Creating a simple Map with JsIso

A very simple example of creating a flat 2D map. By change two values, a Boolean (isometric: true), and a Number (tileWidth: 40) as seen in the instructions, you can easily change this 2D map into an Isometric 2D.5 map.

A basic JsIso Tile Field feature shown is .rotate(); this takes the argument either "left" or "right". This is similar to .flip(); which accepts "vertical" or "horizontal".

The map is built from RGBA colors.

    function(CanvasControl, TileField) {

      // RGBA of color to use
      var tileColor = "(158, 154, 255, 1)";

      // Our Tile Map
      var tileMap = [
        [tileColor, 0, tileColor, 0, tileColor],
        [tileColor, tileColor, tileColor, 0, tileColor],
        [tileColor, 0, tileColor, 0, tileColor]

      // X & Y drawing position, and tile span to draw 
      var xrange = 8;
      var yrange = 8;

      // use CanvasControl to create a simple canvas element
      var context = CanvasControl.create("canvas", 600, 300, {}, "main");

      var tileLayer = new TileField(context, CanvasControl().height, CanvasControl().width);

        layout: tileMap,
        isometric: false, // Flag used to layout grid in non isometric format
        tileHeight: 80,
        tileWidth: 80 // Try setting isometric to true and half tileWidth to 40, for an isometric map

      // Rotate our entire Map 
      // Loop through our tiles and draw the map  
      for (i = 0; i < xrange; i++) {
        for (j = 0; j < yrange; j++) {

These surges are combined with the climbing shoes to enable them to enable the actual climber to purchase a ideal grip as well as secure all of them from falling the moment climbing the tree or possibly a post.
