When programming the servo in BS2 basic language, one example is " For counter = 1 to 220
Pulsout 12, 750
Pause 20

Can someone please tell me why program a loop, and what is the equivalent program above in BlocklyProp? Thanks


  • Title above should be "Programming Parallax Servo"
  • a standard servo expects a refresh every 50ms or so.

    the length of the pulse send in that period determines the position of the servo.

    no clue about blockly,

    If you click the gear icon, top right of your thread title, you can choose Edit to alter the title.

    Ps. done it for you this time :)
  • Thanks.
    I think that coding a servo with a loop is to hold the servo pointer at a certain position for a specific time. Can someone provide me with a blockly coding? Thanks
