Title: New screen & arrow keys
Post by: Scott on January 17, 2007, 01:21:09 PM
Hi,

I'm working on a custom screen and I'm currently just working on the main front page.  I can't get keyboard arrow key movement to work with it.  Do you need to have some other thing in place to allow it to work?  Do you have to have a complete tab page?  The DRO's advance with a file or command, but not with the arrow keys.  The only way I can get a response is to have hot keys assigned to a button either on the main page or the tab page.

Thanks for any help.

Regards,

You have to have a Jog button on the page for it to work. If you don't want to display the Jog On/Off button you could place it out side the stage, or use an image button without an image  ;D

Thanks,

That's one button that I haven't gotten to yet.  ;)
