I'm experimenting with AffineTransform, I've never used it before so I'm not sure where I've gone wrong. Basically I've created just a simple test GUI to see how the code works and all that. Anyway, there are two buttons which turn an image left and right and a third button with moves the image to the right (East). When you first run the program the image is facing down (South). Now to turn left or right I'm using an Affine Transform and the rotate method. That works fine. The issue is when I move the image to the right, it ignore whatever rotation I previously I made (from turn left and right buttons). Therefore when I click to move the image, it faces down again even if it was facing left or up or right before I moved it. It will always be facing down. How do I get it to keep the rotation and just move? Btw I'm using the setTranslate method to move the image.
Below is my code. Forgive me for the messiness - this was just for testing purposes and I apologise for breaking/violating Java conventions and laws - I'm still in the learning process.
I've included all the classes in case you want to compile and run the code to better understand what it's doing wrong.
