Using Example Blocks Projects in VEXcode VR

Example projects are a great resource if you are just getting started with VEXcode VR. They allow you to observe how different blocks in VEXcode VR are used.

Using Blocks Example Projects


To open an Example Project, select the File menu.


Choose ‘Open Examples.’


Icons for many different Example Projects will be shown. Each icon represents a different project and are colored according to the block categories.


The Filter bar can be used to quickly find a specific type of example.


To open any example, select one from the menu.


Blocks for the example base project will populate in the Workspace. These blocks and their parameters can be changed or removed. Additional blocks can be added to modify the example project.

Starting an Example Project in the Playground


Select the Playground icon in the Toolbar to launch the Playground.


Select ‘Start’ in the Toolbar.

Note: selecting ‘Start’ from the Toolbar will launch the Playground if it is not already opened.


Or, select the ‘Start’ icon on the Playground window.


Be sure to save the project to your device if you want to change or revisit the project at a later time.

Notes in Blocks Example Projects


Each Blocks Example Project contains a note in the Workspace.


In a Blocks Example Project, the note provides a short summary for what the project does and the recommended Playground.

Notes can be used to document certain information in a project. For more information on notes, view this article from the VEX Library.
