V5 VEXCode Blocks Competition template

Sorry, there is no tag for V5 blocks

For competition control, is the “when started” the pre-auton code?

The “Autonomous” and “Driver” blocks are pretty straightforward.

Sorry… Edited for clarity…

Correct. “When started” acts as Pre-Autonomous for V5 competition projects

When started

Runs the attached stack of blocks when the the project is started.

when_started

How To Use

When started event will be run when the program is started from the VEX IQ Brain’s menu or from the run button in VEXcode IQ Blocks.

All new programs will automatically include a “when started” block.

So it means that it will be runned first no matter how you start it.

This is the help description from the iq blocks software.
Just press the “?” button and press the block to view its description.

The application has a lot of tutorials built-in, including on how to use the competition template, which is one of the example templates bundled. Nicely packaged app support in a user friendly way!

Great job VEXcode dev team!

@DRow can you add a VEXcode V5 Blocks Tech Support subtopic in VEX EDR Technical Support?
