VEXcode is free to use.

New features in this version:

  • Updated Chinese translations.
  • Adjusted Android Google Play Store entry from allowing VEXcode IQ Blocks from being loaded on unsupported devices (non-Tablets)
  • Support for VEX IQ Firmware version 2.1.5 (released on February 12th, 2020)

Bug Fixes:

  • Resolved an issue where the Drivetrain device was generating incorrect code for the “wheelbase” and “track width” parameters
  • Resolved an issue where My Blocks may not have been able to reference other My Blocks.
  • Included an updated VEX Vision Utility to resolve issues when selecting a color region. Users can now drag in any direction when selecting the desired color region.
  • Resolved an issue where the “Enable”/”Disable” parameters for the “Controller Enable/Disable” block were inverted
  • Resolved an issue where users could enter a gear ratio of zero which would generate a compiler error
  • Added missing “Accurate Turns” example project
  • Resolved an issue where Gyro Sensors could not be calibrated for 4 seconds
  • Updated numerous example projects and templates to set code and device parameters to correct values.

Known Issues:

  1. Blocks do not automatically update when device / direction names change in the Devices window
  2. Share functionality is not yet supported on iPad/Android
  3. Recent Projects is not yet supported on ChromeOS
  4. Projects will not download on iPad/Android if a VEX IQ Controller with a Smart Radio installed is actively linked to a VEX IQ Brain
  5. Tutorial videos cannot be played in “full screen” mode on ChromeOS
  6. When installing on Windows 7, you may receive a warning about unsigned VEX IQ drivers. Users will need to select “Install this driver software anyways” to proceed
  7. Interacting with notes on iOS devices may cause problems with responsiveness. If the workspace is not responsive after interacting with notes, select a Category from the Toolbox to restore the workspace
  8. Using the “Share” button to generate a PDF of the project does not print the content of project notes (yellow boxes)
  9. My Blocks argument blocks may not appear disabled if you drag them straight from the definition block into any other block - however the block's behavior is actually disabled.
