Importing my block in a LEGO EV3 Project Pro Preview

When programming people try to reuse other programmers code. Either because that part of their project is too complicated or time consuming or because there is no need to write code, that it is already written. That allows you to focus on what matters. In our case in order to reuse code from one project into another we need My Blocks. Now we will take a look at how we can import a My Block in our projects.

First we open project properties from the tab with wrench on it in the upper left corner of the program:

Next, we select Import and a new window (file browser) will appear:

We locate the block, that we want to import and we select it. In our case it is called dummy_my_block:

And we have successfuly imported a new block in our project. Now, if we go back to one of the programs in the project, we will be able to find the new My Block under the teal palette (My Blocks). We take it and put it on the canvas and that's it, we are ready!

Finally, let us take a look at the whole process once again:
