Well "translation" is by definition: "changing an objects position"

Here's an idea: how about you learn how to translate a Tkinter canvas object via code BEFORE you try to do it via user input? This is called "code evolution along an intelligent linear path", not some "random shots in the dark".

How do you do this you ask, well i'll give you a hint, follow this yellow brick road for enlightenment.


Take a look at the following methods available to the Tkinter canvas widget here:
Can you find a method that will "translate" or "displace" or (insert another synonym here), a canvas object by passing two (x,y) Cartesian coordinates? Once you can accomplish step 1, we can move on to step 2.


Solving "Step 1" is compulsory!
