Hi everyone,
I am wanting to have a toolbox with no category and custom blocks however when is use a custom block outside of a category i get the block events is not defined error even when it is.
For example when i use this toolbox XML:
<xml xmlns="https://developers.google.com/blockly/xml" id="toolbox" style="display: none">
  <block type="events">
    <field name="NAME">pfl</field>
  </block>
  <block type="colour_random"></block>
</xml>
I get this error:

But when i use a toolbox with the standard blocks e.g. the random color block and the XML: <xml xmlns="https://developers.google.com/blockly/xml" id="toolbox" style="display: none">
  <block type="colour_random"></block>
</xml>
it just works as expected.
is there any reason for this or a way to fix this?
Thanks

Hmmm well it seems like Blockly is having trouble finding your block definition. Where are you defining the 'events' block? If it's in a different file, how are you importing it?

Once we have a bit more information I'm sure someone here can help you out =)

Thanks for writing back Beka!
Note: I removed the toolbox XML else i couldn't work on other stuff.
Second note: the block is defined in the blocks function.

Hi.
The issue has been resolved had to place the blocks before injection.
Thanks
