Hello everyone,

I am making a physics based puzzle game and have designed the levels using XML the structure of the Level Design is as follows ..

BaseObjectClass -> This class makes the objects for the game.

LevelClass -> This class extends the BaseObjectClass reads from the XML and makes the object by calling functions defined inside the BaseObjectClass

My problem is that .. If suppose sometimes I don't wanna use the Default Image that i have mentioned in the BaseObjectClass and want to use the Image whose location I have provided in the XML file how can i do that ?
(suppose I have an Orange Colored Square as the default square and I want to create 2 exactly same squares but just Red in color .. how can i do that)

Any advice would be appreciated ..
Thanks a lot Smiley
Have a nice day

You can add a setColor(Color) method to BaseObjectClass.

thanx but that was just an example ...

actually I want to use different images ...

Like a Brick Shaped Image when i dont mention anything in the XML
and a maybe Mettalic Shine Image when i mention something like 'meta' in the XML ..

Then the BaseObjectClass should have an Image variable and the code that parses the XML should be able to assign the correct image.
