Sample text

When I drag the wire out of the VARIABLE block plug and into the DISPLAY block plug, the line becomes solid yellow, and I know I’ve correctly configured the DISPLAY block. ■Note Plugs on the left side of a block’s data hub are known as input plugs. Plugs on the right side of the block’s data hub are called output plugs. CHAPTER 3 ■ HELLO WORLD! If the line is dotted, it tells me I’ve incorrectly connected two plugs. This can happen for many reasons. For example, if I had put text into the VARIABLE block and dragged the wire into the DISPLAY block’s Radius plug, I would get a dotted line.

Sometimes, the wires will do strange things and go off in strange directions. You’ll just have to play around with them until you figure out how to control them properly. Well, now it’s time to get back to real NXT-G blocks. You’ll see in the figures I provide that many times I’ll have a block’s data hub opened. If you hover the mouse pointer over a data plug, it will show you the name of the data plug (something like Empty or Height in my examples). For some of the plugs, it’s fairly easy to figure out what type of data type they use (the Number plug requires the, duh, Number data type).

Now, let me explain each of these remaining sections. CHAPTER 6 ■ MAKE SOME NOISE! Control Settings The second section on the SOUND block is Control. This section has two options: Play and Stop (see Figure 6-4). Figure 6-4. The Control section of the SOUND block The Play option is simple. Select it, and any sound file or tone you selected in the Action section will play. Not too difficult, right? The Stop option requires a little more explanation. To do this, I need to jump ahead to the Function section (see Figure 6-5).
