slide switch () is in the state ()?

The block check takes the slide switch number (1 or 2) and state to be checked for (Up or Down) as input and returns “True” if the slide switch is in the specified state and “False” if it is not in the specified state.

Sound Block

Sound blocks are color-coded pink and are used to control sound and MIDI functions.

Sprite

Sprites, either user-created, uploaded, or found in the sprites library, are the objects that perform actions in a project. While the Stage can also be programmed in a project, most projects have at least one sprite as well because only sprites can move. 

Stack Block

A Stack block is a rectangular block that is shaped to fit above and below other blocks. Stack blocks make up the majority of the blocks available in Scratch, being available in every category except Operators.

Stage

The Stage is the term for the background of the project but can have scripts, backdrops (costumes), and sounds, similar to a sprite. It has some restrictions on sprite functionality, such as motion and size blocks.

Stage Mode

In this mode, you can write scripts for the sprite and boards like evive to interact with sprites in real-time. If you disconnect the board with Pictoblox, you cannot interact with the board anymore.
