The turtle module provides turtle graphics primitives, in both object-oriented and procedure-oriented ways. Because it uses Tkinter for the underlying graphics, it needs a version of Python installed with Tk support.

turtle.isdown()

This method is used to check whether the turtle is down or not. It doesn’t require any argument and return a boolean value as True if the pen is down, False if it’s up. 

Syntax :

turtle.isdown()

Below is the implementation of the above method :

Python3




# import package
import turtle 
  
  
# to check
print(turtle.isdown())
turtle.forward(10)
  
# up the turtle
turtle.up()
  
# to check
print(turtle.isdown())
  
# up the turtle
turtle.down()
turtle.forward(10)
  
# to check
print(turtle.isdown())


Output :

True
False
True
