slide switch is in state

Slide switch () is in the state ()? block is an evive block and a boolean block

evive has two slide switches both of which have 3 states :

  1. Slide up (state 1)
  2. Slide down (state 2)
  3. Middle (OFF)

evive Slide Switch

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.

evive Notes Icon
Note: This block is available in both Upload mode and Stage mode.


  1. Sprite moves forward if the slide switch 1 is Up, moves backward if the switch is Down else the sprite does not move.

  2. In this script, if the slide switch 2 is slided up (state 1), the LED on evive (connected to pin 13), glows.
