Any Code needed for an Encoder Sensor

I’m looking to get a AS5304 working for our bot but I’m not sure if any code is needed and overall how to get a signal from it. Anything important I should know?

Code will definitely be required. The form is very much dependent on which language you’re programming your robot in. For Java or C++, you would extend the Encoder class or the CounterBase class, depending on whether you’re interested in measuring speed/RPMs or distance/angle of rotation.

I’m looking for distance and to just overall get some sort of reading from it.
I’m using C++. Is there any example code I could use and customize to do what I want it to.

The code you want is in WPILib.
