Command Block Spawn Command

The Command Block item can be spawned in Minecraft with the below command. Cheats must be enabled before this will work.

If you are running the Essentials plugin, you will need to run /minecraft:give instead of simply /give. This is because the Essentials /give command overrides Minecraft's built-in command.

Command Block

The command block in Minecraft can be used to execute commands. They cannot be obtained in Vanilla MC but, by using the item id, you can spawn the command block item into your inventory when in creative mode. In many cases, you must be a server op to use the block. Modifiers such as @p and @e can be used to target things like players and entities with commands.
