Is there a good Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem GeoGebra applet already created?

I would like to find or create a GeoGebra applet that displays the Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem and has a lot of freedom. I have searched and many of the applets are limited. It will only allow you to change the one 90 degree angle. The text in the applets is also limited. I would like to see text that can adjust so that the squares of the shorter two sides being added is being compared to the square of the longest side. Most of the applets' texts have the triangles sides being set in the specific "a", "b", or "c" position within the text regardless of side length if that makes sense. Any help is much appreciated!

If you don't want to create it by scratch, you can download an activity that already contains objects and constructions you want to use, then add your own personal touch! (Remember to cite the source, to thank her/him for their work that helped you).


The golden rule in geometry is "construct, don't draw!", so remember to create objects such that their properties are kept after dragging.

Thank you for the help! I had another quick question. I have done this in the past with other applets. Is there a proper way to cite the source? I noticed that the applets that I edit usually have my name and the original author's name at the top. Is there anything else I should be doing to cite properly? I just want to make sure I am giving credit properly to those that help me.
