get potentiometer () value

Dabble input module has 2 potentiometers whose value can be varied from 0 to 1023 by the user. This block reports the current value of the selected potentiometer.

get timer value

The block returns the time passed since the device is turned ON or since the timer has been reset. This block returns time in milliseconds.

get ultrasonic sensor distance (cm) trig () echo ()

The block reports the distance of the nearest object from an ultrasonic sensor. It returns distance in cm. The trigger pin and echo pin are connected to a digital pin of evive which can be selected from the drop-down menu.

get voltage reading from () channel

The block gives the value of the voltage sensed on the sensing ports of evive. There are 2 ports red (voltage range -30 to 30V) and blue (voltage range -5 to 5V). 

go to () in () axis in () ms

Go to () in () axis in () ms block is a stack block available in Robotic Arm extension for evive and other Arduino boards.…

Green Flag

The Green Flag is a programming feature that, when clicked, will start all scripts in that project that are hatted with the When Green Flag Clicked block. More simply, this block starts the project.

Hat Block

A Hat Block is a block that is designed to start a script. This makes them essential for making projects. All hat blocks are either Control blocks, Events blocks.

IoT Extension

IoT Extension allow you to make IoT-based projects such as home automation, monitoring temperature, etc.

is () pressed on gamepad?

There are 10 digital buttons in the gamepad module, whose data is sent to the device when they are pressed or released. The block reports whether the button is currently pressed on the gamepad or not. If the chosen button is pressed, then it returns true, else it returns false. 

is data from terminal ()

The block compares the latest string message in the terminal with the data input by the user in the block. If the data matches, it returns the true, else it returns false. 

is slide switch () () ?

Dabble input module have 2 slide switch type input, having states left, right and off. This block reports if the selected slide switch is in the selected state in real-time. If the slide switch is in that state, then it returns true else false.

is tactile switch () pressed

Dabble inputs module have two tactile switches. This block reports the state of the tactile switch (pressed or not) in real-time. If the switch is pressed, then it returns true else false.

log () with data ()

Log () with data () is a stack block available in Dabble extension for evive and other Arduino boards. The Data Logger of the IoT…
