When uploading a project to the EV3 brick, is there a way to control the sorting order of the programs on the brick?

E.g: Prog_1 Prog_2 Prog_3 ...

When playing a robot match in FLL one often needs to start a number of programs in a pre defined order, but we are unable to sort the program list. Resulting in much time waisted looking for the correct program.


Not without hacking the firmware, which would be against FLL rules.

One solution I have seen many teams use it to only write one program. This program has it's own menu (that you have to make yourself as part of the program) that calls subprograms (presumably saved as My Blocks).

  • Thx! Good idea with the menu and subprograms, will try that. – Lasse Nov 10 '15 at 0:10

There is no way besides running the programs in the opposite order of which you need it to be. If it doesn't work try again.

  • Yes, I guess this would work. For FLL this year, we made a startup menu with all the missions saved as "my blocks". This worked very well for us. – Lasse Dec 4 '16 at 8:34
