Try this Pedio. Put the *.mcs file in your Wizards folder and start mach4. When you maximize the window, the buttons should expand really big like you want plus being able to move the window to your second screen. Let me know...Hope this helps ya! --josh

Pedio, what color do you want the background and buttons to be? Hot pink and purple?

...or for a bottle of Woodford Reserve, I'll program a jogging wizard for you in which you can just move the wizard to your second screen and maximize it. Gotta finish the mach4 axis calibration wizard first. Don't worry Pedio, I haven't forgot about you! :)

I'm going out on a limb here....

#variable 2131 = current spindle sfpm
#variable 2132 = current spindle speed

another option is to create a marco to run at start which searches the gCode file for all S words and assigns those speeds into a global table or register(s) and redirect those values to your VFD when the required gCode Line Running is about to change the spindle speed. idk, I think I just talked myself in a circle...i'm tryin, just brainstorming...

Intent is:

About menu has three parts...1. Instructions (as described below), 2. Calculations (how the calculations are made), 3. Coding (Contributions and acknowledgments)

Calling wizard will pull user's current motors 'CountPerUnit' from their profile's Machine.ini file and display their [motor0-3] current values.

Enter distance to travel = a. check if axes are homed --  b(?). Z axis to machine pos 0.0 -- c. execute gCode

User inputs actual distance traveled and new motor counts per unit is calculated and displayed.

Save = write profile's Machine.ini file with new motor's 'CountPerUnit' in order to update the user's config settings automatically (Easy Button = user to copy / paste new calculation and input into motor config menu)

Update = update the axis calibration window to reflect the new motor's 'CountPerUnit' as the current motor's 'CountPerUnit' so the user may repeat the process until satisfied.

Exit = DESTROY window  :)

...and yes your website is in there in the About / Coding menu item! I can make a second one for you Chris with your website in the caption or anywhere you want it so you can post it on your website specifically if you want.
...and make the background mach4 white, lol
It's taking me a bit because I'm totally dissecting all wizard, panel, wx.Widgets examples in mach4 and on this thread including learning wx.FormBuilder and how the code is generated; comparing wx.FormBuilder code to Brian's and Scott's code and really learning / understanding it. Shoot, after my morning coffee and coppehagen...I now wipe my a$$ with box / grid sizers and event handlers. hehe. No my butt is not big where it takes a grid coordinate system to wipe it.

Can we program and create our own user definable sections - keys - values in the machine.ini file? ...or are we only limited to what is given?

no fair saying "a plugin can"  ;)

Can we just open the *.ini file in a text editor and create our own then reference them in scripts in so far as we are just building our own information structures where values can be saved and recalled....

See, this is my problem...I get excited, want to experiment, go down a rabbit hole but still need to do the original project...this is how schedule slips happen, lol!
