Screen designer tips and tutorials / loosing background bitmap
« on: March 10, 2010, 06:34:34 AM »
I'm loosing the background bitmap, as I edit the Program/Run screen. The screen editor version is Mach3Screen 2.7e, the screen set was 1024.set. Editing was on the buttons but it seems not related to what I want to edit. On a simple Open../Save As.. the effect happens.

(It seems the bitmap is lost on opening, as it does not even display. I can then place the bitmap again and it saves it.) (Is that perhaps related to the fact that the bitmap MillBitmaps/BackgroundMain.jpg is 967x725 pixels, but the location is (2,4), size is (1024x725), means scaling and slightly offscreen). (I do not loose the background bitmap when trying to edit with MachScreen V1.39c)

 What can be done to avoid this behaviour? or is that known?

Thanks for thoughts.

General Mach Discussion / REF ALL HOME script differences
« on: March 09, 2010, 05:29:54 PM »
I'm new to Mach3 and CNC, and we hit the following specific issue.

I noticed that the scripts to the buttons "REF ALL HOME" are different on various pages.
On the PROGRAM RUN screen the script reads:
DoButton( 24 )
DoButton( 23 )
DoButton( 22 )
DoButton( 25 )
DoOEMButton(133)
DoOEMButton(134)
DoOEMButton(135)

On the MDI screen and the OFFSET screens the scripts read:
DoButton( 24 )
DoButton( 23 )
DoButton( 22 )
DoButton( 25 )

Why are they different? Is there meaning or is it just a bug or relict?

Our mill does not have encoders (133-135).

Thank you.
Peter
