Get Information About Other Sprites/Stage

You can use the following sensing block to get information about another sprite or the stage:
The second input allows you to select a target object, which can be another sprite in this project, or the stage.

Note that the “Cody” sprite itself is not on this list. That’s because we can use other ways to get information about this sprite itself, such as its x and y positions.
The first input allows you to choose a property you would like to know about, such as its position or costume information. Note that this list is different if you choose the stage as the target, because the stage can not move.

If we move the Apple sprite, then Cody will follow aumatically:
