How To Add This Control To Your Project

Step #1) Load the most recent release of EZ-Builder
Step #2) Press the Project tab from the top menu bar of EZ-Builder
Step #3) Press Add Control from the button ribbon bar of EZ-Builder
Step #4) Choose the Servo category tab
Step #5) Press the Horizontal Servo icon to add the control to your project




Description

Controls a Standard Servo. Using the slide dial, adjust the position of the servo. To have the servo release from holding it's position, press the Release button.

Use the Config button to select the digital port, Min and Max settings.

This control is laid Horizontally for a horizontal mounted servo.

The release button on the control will stop holding the servo in position.

The Center button is the center between Min and Max.
For example, Min is the minimum position. Max is the maximum position. If you press the Center button, the servo will center between Min and Max position. Think of Min and Max as being a boundary that you define. Your robot most likely will have a few appendages that require limiting. The Vertical Head Servo is an example of an appendage that will require limiting. You specify the Min and Max limits of that servo. Once you have done that, the CENTER button will position the servo between the boundaries that you specify.

*Note: this control does not save the last servo position used. To set a servo position when the robot connects, create an initialization script using the Connection Control.

Setting Servo speeds and Initialization Script Tutorial

This tutorial will explain what an initialization script is and how to use them in your EZ-Builder projects. Initialization scripts, sometimes referred to as "Init" scripts are used to prime controls, devices, or existing scripts within your EZ-Builder projects, and sets them ready for use. Sometimes, you may see it referred to as a "Run Once" script. In the next few steps, I will go through how to set an "Init" script up, and go through some of the main uses for this function, that includes servos speeds and setting variables.
