Simple question

I am new to the world of robotics and just recently started using Robotc. I have successfully written and ran my programs but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to switch the controls back to the controller. Any help would be appreciated.

What controller are you talking about? Are you talking about gaining control via the joystick controller after downloading a program?

I originally had it connected to the VEXnet controller that came with the bot.

Are you talking about the VexNet switch or the VexNet Joystick controller?

Are you downloading your programs via the joystick controller or using the orange cable connected directly to the Cortex?

Are you trying to test an autonomous program or what?

Are you using the Competition Template to write your code?

Can you describe in more detail what you are trying to do?

When delivered the cortex/controller would have been setup with the “default code” allowing (for example) a clawbot to be driven without any programming (not everyone buys programming software). Using ROBOTC to download new code will have replaced this default code with your own. ROBOTC has it’s own version of the default code in the examples folder. Is this what you are looking for ?

(open sample program under file menu, go to Advanced then select ROBOTC VEX Cortex Default).

You also need to make sure you have selected “download for VEXnet/USB” or “download for competition” so the cortex doesn’t try and run standalone (ie. no controller).

The answer above clarifies everything I needed. As stated I am extremely new to vex and programming. So their may be future questions, thanks so much for all you guys help.
