Jog pendant's usuelly jog 1, 10, 100 or cont, I guess some will take an input though, looked at mod-io ?

Hi, All

My VB skill's are very bad, Could someone post some VB code for a Mouse button push-on, release-off for an Output#.

Like the MPG Jog Arrows, Searched all over for something simple and concise.

The code below only allows a Click on and Click off

If IsOutputActive( OUTPUT17 ) Then
   DeActivateSignal( OUTPUT17 )
Else
   ActivateSignal( OUTPUT17 )
End If   

Just Lost Hear Thanks, Chip

Hi, Wayne

I no this isn't exactly what you want, Take a look at it any way.

Brains Development / Re: Brain Jog XY

Hi, All

Just playing around some-more, 45's 4 corner XY.

Put this in 4 Buttons, Press to start, Press to stop

If IsOutputActive( OUTPUT17 ) Then
   DeActivateSignal( OUTPUT17 )
Else
   ActivateSignal( OUTPUT17 )
End If   

Change the 17-20 to as shone in Pic., I no theres a better way in VB to press buttons and have it stop on release of button, I just don't no the VB code for it.

In Config, Ports & Pins, Outputs, Check mark 17-20 ON, Doesn't appear you need a Port or Pin assignment for it to work.

Haven-Fun, Chip

Brains Development / Brain Jog XY
« on: November 18, 2007, 10:45:29 PM »
Hi, All

Just fooling around with Brain's a little. Using output 6 to start and stop Jog X+ Y+ axises, Works Pretty Darn Good.
First it changes to Cont Jog then Jog's XY together, Then another Click turns them Off, Really Nice !!!

Thank you  Art and All responsible for these Features.

Note's:

Cont. & Inc. Jog's are backwards in Brain"s.
Cont. Jog will Jog both axis's.

Inc. Jog's one axis at a time ?.
But on MDI line both will jog inc. at the same time ?.

Would be nice if Brain's would allow for Input User-Button's, A code in Edit Button Script to allow brain's to see/use them.
Maybe some User-Led's , User-Button's, User-Output's in Output"s Also, Just thinking down the road a little.
   
Thanks, Chip

Hi, Alex718

There's a setting in Mach3 under Config, General Confgi, Right side "G04 Dwell in ms" make sure it's not Checked.

Also in Config, Ports & Pins, Spindle Setup, General Parameters, "CW Delay Spin Up", That May give you a default delay.

Hope this Helps, Chip
