Mach SDK plugin questions and answers. / Detect Jogging Screen
« on: November 04, 2010, 10:20:55 AM »
Hi,

for screenpages, that are used for jogging with the keyboard, the jog mode toggle button (103) has to be present.
if present, you are allowed to jog with the cursors on the keyboard.

For a plugin I need to know if jogging on the actual page is allowed. How could I detect, that the Button is on the actual screen?
Any UserLED to ask? Any status in the Engine-variables?

Thanks, Steffen

Hi,

I'm working at a plugin for Mach3 which will implement some movement.
At the moment it is normal VBA as screen buttons but due to the size of the screenset and software maintenance it is of interest to transfer the code to a DLL/Plugin.

Everything is working fine and on the basics of the plugin-tutorial it was just a simple way to the first code (thanks to James for this nice work).

Now as an example my problem:

Code: [Select]
Code("g01x1000");
while(IsMoving())
{
  Sleep(10);
}
Code("g01x2000");
while(IsMoving())
{
  Sleep(10);
}

Now if there is ESCAPE pressed while doing the first move, this move is stopped, then the second move is done.
With VBA the whole script is stopped.

My intention is to stop the whole script as in VBA and so I need the information, if movement has been stopped by the user (or some other condition).

So my code would be
Code: [Select]
try
{
  Code("g01x1000");
  while(IsMoving())
  {
    Sleep(10);
  }
  if (MovementHasBeenEscaped())
  {
    throw (ESCAPEDMOVEMENT);
  }
  Code("g01x2000");
  while(IsMoving())
  {
    Sleep(10);
  }
}
catch(int breakcode)
{
}

So, what chance do I have to implement MovementHasBeenEscaped()?

I sought at TractoryControl, Engine an Mach4View, but until now I did'nt find a way to check for the break.
