Russ,

It does show movement here with no file loaded. But what's wrong with it is that it leaves traces where it passes. This is as well as when a file is loaded.

LOL...I am not a programmer, Scott. Could barely do VB, let alone this whole new to me LUA thing...

Not asking you to do this. Appreciate all your input anyway!

This is real nice Scott. Next thing would be allowing setting "Jog Follow" independently for each view.... Wink

Worked on a quick little routine this morning while watching the news.

I like to know the percent of completion the program I am running.


That's really cool Vince. Very neat.
This just shows % of total lines of code irrespective of the actual time it takes for the file to complete, right ?
If so, how difficult would it be to do similar by displaying a running  % of TIME remaining ?

Very interesting, thanks for posting,
Russ

Yes, this is a nice thing. Thanks for sharing, Craig.

But, could we keep this thread strictly for Mach4 bug reports and related comments? And open new threads for other topics. Otherwise the thread is getting cluttered with all sorts of other things and the bugs are getting missed by Brian and Steve and it's not leading to anywhere.

Asked this before, but it again got missed - is there a way to have the DRO's persistent like it is in Mach3?

Also, a few other things:

1. Are there no settings for CV like there used to be in Mach3?
2. While running a program, all the buttons under the the File Ops tab should be grayed out or at least shouldn't do anything if clicked on, like it is in Mach3. Clicking one of them in Mach3 returns a message that you should first Stop the programme running.
3. Can the file loader be made to remember the last location and not default to the root directory of Mach4?
4.

MACH Config - Input signals tab - first column is not resizable - text truncated

Don't see it here...

Hey guys, why not open a separate thread for the LPT topic and discuss this there. Why cluttering this thread which was supposed to be for Mach4 comments...

Is there a setting for persistent DROs after restarting Mach4, like there is in Mach3?

Yes, noticed that, but again not as good for touch screens. Also, the behaviour of DROs not quiet clear with the introduction of the cursor. Fill in a number in the X DRO, hit Enter and the cursor moves to the Y DRO, allowing you to fill in numbers, but not allowing you to save them with the Enter key...? The cursor ahould have disappeared after hitting Enter in the X DRO I think...

Anyway, it is my opinion that a cursor type DROs in a machine control system is not as practical and is a source for machine operator's mistakes.
