I wanted to know if this is possible. I want to be able to call others sketches back and forth. For instance for simplicity I created 2 sketches when i click on Sketch2 it will show that sketch now in this sketch I have button to show sketch1 but that is not working. I get this message TypeError: fxn is undefined[Show stack]
My goal is to create a mini game type of scenario where the player can choose or I can choose randomly different games the player can play and in these mini games be able to go back to the main screen and select another minigame. Can I do this in openprocessing.org?
here is the code
Even though I use & like that Processing sketch hosting site very much, for more complex sketches, I’d rather choose other hosting options w/ more code flexibility.
There are many approaches we can go with for multi-pick sketch.
But b/c all the sketches you intend to run are using “instance mode”, that makes things much easier.
So I’ve come up with an example which uses createRadio() to pick the activeSketch from among those stored in sketches:
Every time the current option() is changed(), it calls back runPickedSketch(); which in turn calls destroyMe() for the activeSketch, then calls createMe() using the index - 1 from method value().
You can see it running online at this JS hosting site below:
And also edit it here: Glitch :･ﾟ✧

P.S.: Due to a bug in methods option() & value(), I had to store sketches's indices starting at
1, b/c those methods can’t store the value
Thank you for the thorough explanation. Unfortunately since the course I’m taking requires me to use this website my options are limited.
It does work on OpenProcessing too:
However, b/c we can’t control the order the multi-tabs are loaded there, the global variable sketches defined within the main tab may not exist yet when the other tabs happen to be run 1st.
As a workaround, we can have this statement on each tab:
var sketches = window.sketches || ;
It makes sure to create an Array and assign it to sketches if 1 isn’t already present in it.
