General Mach Discussion / Re: Scripter Compile Errors
« on: March 07, 2014, 08:55:43 PM »
Actually, forget coping the M3.m1s, found other problems: code got stuck in
subroutine, endlessly looping.   Not sure if coping the M3.m1s from another profile caused this,
or if I had multiple corrupted files.

Better fix for the M3.m1s error message is to DELETE the directory under MACRO
for your profile.   Since the .xml for your profile is still in the Mach3 directory, when you run MACH3 again,
 it will RECREATE the MACRO directory and all the files including the M3.m1s, so you have all new uncorrupted
files.

Notepad edited the .NC file, rebooting, etc. did not fix.
BUT, I simply took a copy of the Mach3/macro/myproflie/M3.m1s from ANOTHER
profile and overwrote the corrupt one, and it FIXED.

M3.m1s appears to be a one line file but is NON-ASCI.   Looks same in all profiles.

Screen designer tips and tutorials / INITIAL OEMDRO values in wizards
« on: April 08, 2013, 02:34:55 PM »
Maybe someone in the know, can fill us in better:
I could NOT FIND info on how the INITIAL OEMDRO values are set in wizards.
Here is what I suspect about initial OEMDRO values in MACH3 Wizard.
 
The wizard has both a .set and a .set.def file.  the .set.def file is BINARY.
I suspect that the wizard.set .def file holds the Wizard initial OEMDRO values, and
once set, cannot be changed.   This also makes them transferable with the Wizard.
 
However, the .xml of your Mach3 profile also contains the last saved values of OEMDROs.
These are saved by CLEANLY exiting mach3 such as with the exit command under file.
At that point, Mach3 will write the currently displayed OEMDRO values into profile.xml.
So if you change the OEMDRO numbers in your Wizard, they will now be in profile.xml,
(but will be overwritten the next time Wizard is run by the initial values in the wizard.set.def)
 
BUT, If you now (wizard not running) delete the .def file of the wizard, the next time wizard
is run, it will load the profile.xml OEMDRO values, and create a new wizard.def
with the new initial OEMDRO values in it.
 
Note that while OEMDRO numbers go from 1000, 1001, and up, the .xml
lists them as OEMDRO 0, OEMDRO 1 and up.
 
I suspect that the profile.xml can ALSO be hand edited via notepad with
a drag and drop of the .xml file into notepad.

Screen designer tips and tutorials / Screen4 BUG and workaround
« on: April 08, 2013, 02:31:44 PM »
Interesting Screen4 bug/feature.  with images, NO WAY TO BRING TO TOP,

so I could not put the some images on TOP of the background.   I suspect
was due to order of when I added the background.

So. my workaround: instead of image, I made the images into IMAGE BUTTONS with no VB script.
