Semi-Automous Question 2

How do I add a Semi-Automous to my code?

if(Controller1.ButtonRight.pressing()) { Spinner1.spin(vex::directionType::rev); Spinner2.spin(vex::directionType::rev); }
That’s what I have right now, can you give me an example on how to add the semi-auto

Thats not really automatic at all.
What exactly are you attempting to automate?

Thats not the autmoated part, I want to know how to start the automatic

Then why is it relevant? If you tell us exactly what you want to automate we can help you.

Sorry, I want to get the spinners to go to the towers

what we want to do is to make the spinners operate for a certain amount of time or rotations with one button press. It would make picking the cubes so much simpler

So you want to automate raising your lift to tower height? I wouldn’t recommend automating placing cubes in towers, as its different each time

You can be like: If Button pressed, rotate to ___degrees

Oh my, theres a lot going on here. Ok, to start everything off the author is looking for VEXCode Macros, and how to do multiple things with a button press. I am quite busy during this week but this should help direct future information. In addition, there is likely a resource if you use the search feature, so if you cannot find an answer you’re looking for you may be able to find the answer by searching for it.


The general approach is to define a function that performs the “macro” you want to perform, and then to register it as a callback for a particular button press with:


You only need to do this once, at the beginning of your driver control function, and the function will run every time the button is pressed.
