How do I switch the switch

  • Dear Friends,

    Sometimes it looks if I am blind for some problems,

    I can't see what I am doing wrong.

    Could anybody please explain why this does not work?

    And please tell me how to solve this?

    I made a switch that one can turn in 3 positions

    Position 0 = 0 degrees

    Position 1 = -60 degrees

    Position 2 = +60 degrees

    I tried two methods, but neither of them will function.

    I guess this is a simple mistake I made, but I can't find the proper way to turn the switch.

    Frustrating...

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Don't stack the logic like that. Your first test should be: Left-clicked. From there use sub-events to break down the next steps for 0 Else -60 Else 60.

    If you step through what it's doing you see what is wrong. (Method2.PNG won't work as you are changing frames but testing angles - you didn't change the angle). Method1.PNG: When the events run, "Left-clicked is True *for all cases*. So, event 4 checks the angle is 0, then sets it to -60. Then event 5 runs and the angle is -60, so it sets it to 60, then event 6 runs and sets it to 0!
