Other Blocks There are some blocks that do not fit the previous categories: • Timer block: Reads or resets the value of three built-in timers that start counting when a NXT-G program starts. • Record/play block: Allows for the recording of movements of the robot.
IDE Once you install and start the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Software, you can see the integrated development environment (IDE), as shown in Figure 2-7. The IDE consists of six different areas that enable you to perform all the tasks that are required to write programs for the NXT, to download them to the Brick, and to run them there: • Toolbar: The area that allows you to trigger most frequently used commands • Programming palette: The store for the different types of blocks • Work area: The canvas to compose your programs on • Configuration panel: The area to configure the separate blocks on the work area in detail • Controller: The tool to compile, download, and run programs • Robo Center: The bridge to the NXT community 35 36 CHAPTER 2 ■ A 3,000-FOOT LOOK AT NXT PROGRAMM IN G ENVIRONMEN TS Figure 2-7.
