Freeman is correct I can link a button to a compiled script but not a embedded panel.

Kind of thinking I like the button better anyways, as I like popup functional screens.

I use artcam to do i think what would work for you or I use rhino and madcam.
might want to look at some of my signage to see my curved signature style.
but its all about layers with artcam rhino its about projections and wraps

took brian's mpgtest.mcs program and added 3 more axis's

just to show how easy it is.

works good, now if he could provide a script to get an actual MPG dial to control my servos.

Thanks Brian and Brett now quit eating lobster and telling stories and get back to work,  Grin

Update:
and with one number changed you can change the look

local InputsGridSizer  = wx.wxFlexGridSizer( 2, 3, 0, 0 )

and then replaced the textbox with a combo selection dropdown box,

Made a "Notes.txt" file script and then added an error catch, if the file is not found it creates one for you. (added that to all them)

Far as the screen.sets I'm just trying to do as much as I can to be ready for mach4 when it is ready and released.  Tongue
Not sure it would be a viable product for sale, as I did not plan on writing detail instructions and then supporting it as on ongoing revenue stream.
Thou the American way, if someone was to throw money at me I'd have to take notice. But your choices are wait for guys like Ger to learn to program Lua and then provide a mach4 screen.set or start learning to do this yourself and take control of your own needs.  

I'm trying to keep up and have a functional interface. Good time to dive in and mess with it as Ya-Nvr-No you too might be good at this.
Not like we have an alternative, other than an unsupported Mach3, that I'm thinking will not be addressed ever again!
So as in all things there is good and bad. Get over it and make a decision. Either find a way to adapt and learn or, use what you have. Everything has issues.

Sorry, years of being a Journeymen Tool & Die maker, Manufacturing & Controls Engineer and also a University of Alabama Instructor for a short period. Reminds me that it takes years to get proficient and apply ones talents to the task at hand. It's been a good life for me.  Grin   Lots to learn, lots of time left to apply it.

Damn that's not like me (see what a couple of Labatts will do on a hot day)  Cheesy

Had some excellent help from Scott on this project

Editable text help files

button presses brings up the list of codes that can be edited on the fly.
I'd like to add more buttons for notes or other resource data that might be useful on demand

Thanks again Scott, "you da man"

thanks that's nice to hear, but its more just tedious detail then anything
fun crap to learn, I'm sure you can do a lot of this, just takes never giving up.

Took Scotts great idea and created an I/O screen
uses a toggle button to jump to the screen on cycle start to view status.
toggle buttons for outputs and leds for inputs & output states

Working on adding tool pocket location tracking and tool usage times using pound variables for storage and retrieval.

not quite following all this; but if you know the image name in the screenset image folder you can swap them with a scr.SetProperty function

    buttonImage = 'TOOLT9.BMP' -- known image name stored in the screen.set
    scr.SetProperty('bbutton29', 'Image', buttonImage);
