    Exclamation Objects - Moving Shapes in JAVA HELP PLEASE!

    Hey guys,

    I need some help... Basically I got a few shapes in java and made it into a car, I now need to move all the shapes together across the screen. How would I do this?

    Here is my code, I can move one shape at a time but not all of them together.

    public class Vehicle
    {
    private Circle wL;
    private Circle wR;
    private Rectangle b1;
    private Rectangle b2;


    /**
    * Constructor for objects of class Vehicle.
    */
    public Vehicle()
    {

    }

    /**
    * Draw your vehicle.
    */
    public void draw()
    {
    wL = new Circle ();
    wL.makeVisible();
    wL.changeSize(60);
    wL.moveVertical(130);
    wL.moveHorizontal(100);

    wR = new Circle ();
    wR.makeVisible();
    wR.changeSize(60);
    wR.moveVertical(130);
    wR.moveHorizontal(220);

    body1 = new Rectangle ();
    b1.makeVisible();
    b1.changeSize(190, 60);
    b1.moveVertical(80);
    b1.moveHorizontal(70);

    body2 = new Rectangle ();
    b2.makeVisible();
    b2.changeSize(100, 30);
    b2.moveVertical(50);
    b2.moveHorizontal(95);







    }

    /**
    * Move your vehicle a little to the right.
    */

    public void moveRight()
    {




    wheelR.slowMoveHorizontal(80);
    wheelL.slowMoveHorizontal(80);


    }

    /**
    * Move your vehicle a little to the left.
    */
    public void moveLeft()
    {


    }
    }


    the section I put in red doesn't seem to work there but if i move it up to under the b2 part it works

    using .slowMoveHorizontal(); under the yellow part I can get the shapes moving but one after the other. How do I correct this?

    Thanks for reading

    Please use code tags and not colour highlights when posting code.

    Iterater over all the shapes and adjust their x co-ord.
