Thread: Need switch statement for checker game (DUE TOMORROW!)

    Default Need switch statement for checker game (DUE TOMORROW!)

    I need to add checkers to my checkerboard.

    A checker is added only in rows 1,2,3,6,7 and 8. If using a loop, this corresponds to i = 0,1,2,5,6 and 7.

    I need help writing a switch statement to place checkers on my checkerboard.

    Here is the code for my checkerboard.

    public class Checkers extends GraphicsProgram {

    public void run() {
    double sqSize = (double) getHeight() / N_ROWS;
    for (int i = 0; i < N_ROWS; i++) {
    for (int j = 0; j < N_COLUMNS; j++) {
    double x = j * sqSize;
    double y = i * sqSize;
    GRect sq = new GRect(x, y, sqSize, sqSize);
    sq.setFilled((i + j) % 2 != 0);

    private static final int N_ROWS = 8;
    private static final int N_COLUMNS = 8;
