I am creating a bar graph essentially just by only using the graphics module. I am stuck with it. Below is my code that I have done which creates a perfect square. (10 x 10) so for every one bar I was it to decrease by 10.

def drawRectanglePatch(win, x, y):
    Point(200,200)
    for i in range(10):
        for j in range(10):
               topLeftX = x + i * 10
               topLeftY = y + j * 10
               rectangle = Rectangle(Point(topLeftX, topLeftY),
                                              Point(topLeftX + 10 , topLeftY + 10 ))
               rectangle.setFill("red")
               rectangle.setOutline("red")
               rectangle.draw(win)

Thanks in advance

Get the module graphics.py from:
http://mcsp.wartburg.edu/zelle/python/graphics.py

Here is a wintery example:

'''gr_SnowMan1.py
draw a snowman with module graphis.py (based on Tkinter)

newer version works with Python2 and Python3

Edited 4 Years Ago by Lardmeister: code

This will give you a general idea of how to start if I understand what you want.

def drawRectanglePatch(x, y):
    win = GraphWin("Test", 300, 300)
    for i in range(10):
        for j in range(10):
               topLeftX = x + i * 10
##               topLeftY = y + j * 10
               incr = 0
               if j-i > 0:
                   incr = j-i
               topLeftY = y + incr * 10
               rectangle = Rectangle(Point(topLeftX, topLeftY),
                                              Point(topLeftX + 10 , topLeftY + 10 ))
               rectangle.setFill("red")
               rectangle.setOutline("white")
               rectangle.draw(win)
    win.getMouse()
drawRectanglePatch(10, 10)

A more compact version of the snow program. I'm not obsessive really.
