Vex Coding Studio: Pneumatics

I am currently working on a robot for this years vex competition, and my team is using pneumatics. However we have been having trouble coding because we are using vex coding studio and a V5 brain, but the ports don't show up in the coding software. The ports are labeled A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H; but none of them appear while I'm coding. Any advice?

A quick search on the VEX forum found this result:
Programming Single Acting Pneumatics

While CD is a good resource, the VEX forum is pretty active and full of VEX-specific knowledge. As an added bonus. people like James Pearman - who works on VEX products- are active contributors.

Re: Vex Coding Studio: Pneumatics

VCS, and V5 hardware for that matter, is best described as work in progress. The link provided above is of no use to you since it's for the earlier EDR Cortex controller however VEX Forum is the right place to ask.

What language in are you using in VCS? Modkit, VEX C++, C++ Pro?
With VEX C++ you're not given access to edit the robot-config.h file so you have to declare your port usage in the .cpp file. With C++ Pro you can just edit the robot-config.h file. For Modkit there is no hope.

Add this line
vex::digital_out actuator_name( Brain.ThreeWirePort.A);

In your code
actuator_name.set(true);
actuator_name.set(false);


Here's the VCS C++ API document - latest release that I know of and it's old.
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...oQEU5r-sk/edit

There's also a VCS documentation website here and it has a hamburger menu! https://help.vexcodingstudio.com/index.html

If you're programming in C++ just switch to using PROS. Search VEX Forum.

Oh bananas, I totally missed that the question wasn't for VCS - good catch.
