Coding piston in vexcode v5 text (c++)

help im having a coding crisis here

so what i want it to do is that when we press a button, the piston retracts and goes up 3 times. how do we do that in vexcode v5 text, c++? I havent been able to find anything online

There are plenty of posts on the forums that have similar questions, and many have code included. Please search before you post.


Well what do you know how to do? If you know how to use a piston in the code, you shouldn’t have too much of an issue if you do some research.

Never mind, I found it out. I’m just doing it via block, since it’s easier

Cylinders use digital signals (true and false, 0 and 1, on and off) to extend and retract using a solenoid.
