Change value

Change, meaning increase, the value of a variable by some amount.

let x = 0
x += 2

The change blocks increase the value in the variable by the amount you want. This is also known as an addition assignment operation.

Change a declared variable

Use the change operator to set a new, larger value to a variable. If you let a variable have a value of 1, the change block makes the value change by 2 like this:

let x = 1
x += 2

You can use the change operator with variables of each of the supported types.

Example: show the value of a variable

Use the assignment operator to set the value of a variable. Change the value of a variable from 0 to 1 using the change item block. Then display the new value of the variable on the LED screen. Like this:

let x = 0;
x += 1;
