Say Ezb

When I use the mobile Ez builder app and use Blocky , I get and Error message when I try to use the Say Ezb command.

Example: SayEZB "Hello World"

Code SayEZB("Hello World")

I get the error message >Error on line 1: Attempt to invoke virtual method 'java.lang.Objectjava.util.HashMap.get(java.lang.Object)' on a null object reference

When I use this in the PC version of Ez Builder it works fine.

Is this a bug in the mobile version? Not yet implented yet?




Upgrade to ARC Pro

With ARC Pro, your robot is not just a machine; it's your creative partner in the journey of technological exploration.


Not all devices support that function. Yours does not :)


Thanks DJ,

In Devices do you mean my Galaxy s6 phone, or all android devices?

Thanks Again,




Broke with Android 6.01. Not sure if it is working again in Android 7 or if it is still broken. I rarely use the mobile app and haven't tried since my phone got upgraded.


(I do now have Android 7 so can test at some point, but am too busy this afternoon).



Android devices. My Samsung note and tablet works. That's all I can verify with :)


What Android version are your devices DJ? It worked on my Nexus 7 and Galaxy S6 until they updated from Android 5 to Android 6.



Android 6 (API 23) - the mobile app is always compiled against the latest android sdk


Strange stuff. This definitely worked on the Nexus 7 and Galaxy S6 (which I no longer have. On an S8 Android 7 now. I'll try to test this weekend, also still have the S7 which is also on Android 7 now) prior to their 6.01 upgrades, so it isn't a hardware issue.. The Nexus is pure Android, so we can't blame it on Samsung's changes to Android.

Maybe I should send you my S7. I'll be in Banff this summer, maybe I can drop it in the mail when there so I don't need to deal with international shipping and customs declarations and such (still haven't convinced my wife to come visit EZR, but maybe if we have a really rainy day).



I won't be in calgary until september. Although, i'm sure everyone at the office would love to see you!

I'll poke into the API and see if there's any docs about certain versions deprecating the call.


Got it - there's a deprecated xamarin bind to the android native function which is expired. I guess some devices still support it and others don't. I'm checking for the API version and using the new function, respectively.

It's uploaded now and will be online in a few hours or by tomorrow at the latest. Android updates pretty quick


Does the update work for your devices?


Thanks Dj,

The Update worked and Say EZB works fine now.
