I used a program called PSPad. It is FreeWare.

I only know how to use a few of the calls. I made the list of Mach3 specific words because I couldn't find them anywhere else.
I was told that the list didn't exist and that the Mach specific words had been made up by Art. So I looked at the code in the Mach3.exe file.
Now that there is a list, it should be easier for those that understand VBScript programming to do something with them in Mach3.
I am not familiar enough with VBScrip to be much help with how the words are used. I was hoping that the list would be helpful.

How Much interest is there in an UPDATE to the Mach specific VB??

   I have seen lately a rash of VB releated issues on this and the other site. I have TWO quetions.
I am willing to post up an "Mach VB Update" manual, IF some others would ALSO step up and offer to help.

Question1:  Would you like to see the above manual done?

Question2: If you would, who amoung you would be willing to HELP with it, I mean post up not just code, but code examples.

Needed: Would be two other people: One who could take the code and examples, and put them into a PDF and perhaps another guy
to update the WAY-OUT-OF-DATE   WIKI.

if it looks like a doable thing, then I will post for those willing to contribute, a central email, to collect the stuff, I will then add your stuff to my stuff that
I have collected through the years, and then get the Draft to someone who has SKILL doing Editing and Publishing (not me).

I posted an xls file at


That contains over 200 Mach3 specific VBScript words gleaned from the Mach3 program.

The xls contains a list of OEM codes for buttons, LEDs and DRO's. If any more are known that are not in the list please let me know and I will alter and re attach it for all to use.
I just posted at
and attached an xls file containing all of the Mach3 specific VBScript words that I could find.
That file really should be over here and on the Wiki but I dont know how to move it or
put it on the Wiki.

You gave me the clue that I needed. All of the funny words are in Mach3.
Attached is an Excel file of all of the words that I could find in Mach3 Version R3.042.020.
Let the fun begin.

I corrected a couple of typos in the file.

Thanks Greg. I like that code better as it would be good for all outputs.
My big question is, where do you find all the BIG words like "IsOutputActive".
Do you just make them up and see what happens?
Every time I get help programming a script it seems to come with a new, as far as I can find, undocumented word.
Where can I find the "Word List"? Once I see the "Word" it is not hard understanding what it does.

Thanks, that works but how? Where do you find the information to write these functions.
Most of the help that I have got contains key words that I can't find in any of the tutorials.

That does work. Is there any way to make the button toggle OUTPUT1 on and off?

I need to set OutPut #1 with a hotkey sequence. I can find where to set hotkeys for the inputs but I am not finding any way to set hotkeys for the output lines.
Just point me in the right direction please.

I am using the 500-600 range because I have been told they are safe to use.
It would be great if Art would give us a list of safe to use variables.
