hello Roy,

pls describe what functions you Need, and we will see.

Thanks man. I sent you a PM


I noticed that I forgot to mention we are talking about Mach 3


I am quite familiar with designing screensets, and have just started looking into VB scripting and brains.
Brains is not the biggest problems as I code and debug PLC´s on my dayjob, but the VB scripting is not down my alley ....yet.
Anyway, to make confusion even bigger I started looking into making a wizard for this custom screenset I just made.

I can design the page with the basic layout of the wizard, and explain the function I need.

So my question is: Do any of you people with this knowledge do this kind of work for a reasonable price?

Best regards

Sorry to keep nagging here but I am trying to learn some of the VB scripting slow and steady.

I have been able to change the size of the keypad, buttons and also the placement on the screen by myself, BUT it would be great to be able to code some strings to also change the font size
Is that something that can be easily done?

Yup that did the trick. I figured that I should put my path in the ..\..\ fields. Now I am on track.
Thank you very much for your help Thomas, and I wish you a great day

Best regards

Thanks for the howto.
I got the script working, now its just a problem with the #Expand code.
When I press the button with this script, I get this error message. (see attachment)
(I noticed a path that has a folder named ScreensetMacros, I do not have this folder in my Mach3 folder)

Is the config button supposed to be configured with std code 34  ,and with this text?:

Sub Main
   call NumericKeyboard(800)

End Sub

#Expand <C:\Mach3\macros\plasma\numerickeyboard>

read my post

An Android tablet or a windows 10 tablet connecting into a MACH3 PC as a RD Client will ALREADY provide touchscreen, ZOOM, PAN and large touch Keyboard capability for data entry.

A simple screenset like the ready uploaded "School_Router.set" could be used if just running programs if using Remote Desktop touchscreen since buttons are LARGE.

Thanks a lot, that is so cool.
For this project I have a compact computer with touchscreen running win8, and I am making a custom screenset for a motion control application using the mach 3 screen designer.
I have the screenset mostly worked out, but would like a bigger keypad for my lumpy fingers.

best regards

hello Roy,

have a look here: https://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?topic=39117.0

or here: https://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?topic=36213.msg247828#msg247828

there is some code code i did for an other user, witch can be easy modified for your Needs.

Thank you very much Thomas.
I looked into this, and made the macro, but when I try to run the script I get this error message.
I just might have done something wrong.
I have not figured out yet how to call the macro from a button, so i just ran it from the script editor to test

Attached are the screenshot of the error message

Best regards

Hi I am working on a new custom screenset, and I will be working on a touch screen.
So for this I am going to use the Auto Calulator feature for the input of the DRO´s
I have searched this forum and found someone ask the same question a few years back, but no response, that I can find.
My chubby fingers are a little to large for the small keys on the Auto calculator.
The function is great as the keypad pops up when you press the desired DRO, but again I would like it to be a bit larger.

I know that there are no further development on mach3 anymore, but If anyone has been able to solve this issue, or have some other good solutions, it is greatly appreciated

A numeric keyboard with an enter key is all that is needed

Thank you VERY much Klaus

That really saved my day.
Just what I was looking for, and it worked perfectly.
I wish you a good weekend.

I might have couple of questions down the road as my application build progresses

best regards
