Controls

EZ-Builder apps consist of Controls. Each control is a behavior for your robot, and can be thought of as a process. There are controls for WiiMotes, Cameras, Speech Recognition, and hundreds more. Controls can be added to your project using the Add Control option located in the Project tab of the main menu.



Add Control

Controls can be added to your project using the Add Control option located in the Project tab of the main menu.



Dialog

When the Add Control button is pressed, the dialog will be displayed with a list of all controls in their respective category. Selecting a control will add it to your project. The Auto Arrange check-box located on the bottom of the Add Control dialog will auto arrange all controls on your project to fit the new control if checked.



Help For Controls

Help

Every control has a question mark next to the close X button. Pressing the question mark button will direct you to a manual page for the respective control.



Configure Button

Every control has a configure button with a gear on it. Pressing this button will open the configuration dialog for the respective control. The configuration dialog will present numerous configuration options on how the control will behave.



Configure Dialog

Each window has a unique configuration dialog with settings related to the behavior. There is one common setting between all controls, which is the Control Title/Name. Each control requires a unique name. This is because EZ-Script can send commands to controls to programmatically change parameters. As an example, you can use EZ-Script to tell the Camera Control to send the current image to Twitter.
