JetCam screen designer / Re: List of Jetcam requests :)

Hi Stan

As always looking great  ;D

I've attached one awkward shaped button, an arrow. I often use these in wizards etc.

The second is a 2-state button. I.e. is it possible to make the image change based on the button state? That consists of images test1a and test2a.

Finally a tool selection buttom

If you want some more buttons just let me know.

Cheers

Dave

The only real question is,  how long do you want to wait.

Hi Stan

Personally, I think it would be better to have an editor that is 99% complete. If you release an early version then it may dishearten people if it doesn't do everything they expect. On the other hand a good editor with lots of new features should blow people away. With your editor we have a great opportunity to create the editor 'WE' want and I believe it is better for us and yourself to try and get it right before release. HAve you been in discussion with Art regarding his thoughts on Screen 4 and what would improve it/his perceived weaknesses of it.

Cheers

Hi Stan

Looking good - would it possible to have a way to include names with the OEM and format codes ? e.g

1001 - Pause
1002 - Rewind

and

%.4F - DRO Setup 1
%.3F - DRO Setup 2

I'm thinking that with a descriptive name it is theoretically possible to supply all the OEM codes and then just select the name of the control you want - no need to look up any code numbers at all then after the inital setup.

Also does the setup window support pasting text into it from the clipboard? i.e. you could have a standard text file used as a library and simply copy the text and paste it inot your setup screen.

We're (well mainly me ;D !) a demanding bunch ! Hope you don't mind me putting in so many comments - a shame we aren't getting more input from some of the other users....

Cheers

OEM Codes

I want to do the same for OEM codes,  but have no idea
what needs to be in the drop down.  I may implement this
as I did format strings (see below).

The ability to customise this list would be great. If you could set it up the same as your new format strings that would be great.

One other question - with LED's and images, will it be possible to use LED's of different shapes for each state. E.g. when an LED is on it is a circle, when it is off then it changes to a cross? Or will it only support 'morphing' between images of the same shape?

Stan, I know I keep saying it but thank you so much for doing all this work on the editor. This is going to be a revolution in the way screens are developed. As always if there is anything I can do to help just give me a shout.

Cheers

Dave

Looking great there Stan. Can't wait to have a play! Led's are looking great and extermly easy to use. Having an editor with such features, but at the same time being easy to use will make screen designe a breeze!

One question - Between the properties and the screen window there are some buttons. Are these buttons gonna remain as letters or will they use icons like in the original designer? My only concern may be that new users might not get the meanings - whereas icons may give them a better idea.

Keep up the good work

Cheers

Thanks for the offer Graham.

I've been having a play and it would seem like the standard Fanuc 2X PP seems to work pretty well. The only funny problem I have had is that it set G97 on one line and then a few lines later in front of the first move it puts G98, even though all operations are set to RPM and mm/min settings. If I delete the G98 the part meachines fine. Not a big problem but it would be nice to get rid of it.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Dave

Hi Stan

Thanks for all the updates on how progress is going - it's really wetting my appetite for the new designer and I'm gettin more excited every day  ;)

No probs, I've attached some screenshots below. The background graphic is a 1024x768 Jpeg created in Realdraw.

First image shows a 1024x768 screen set in jetcam, the image display mode is set as normal.
Second image shows a 1024x768 screen set in jetcam, the image display mode is set as aspect stretched.
Final image shows a 1024x850 screen set in jetcam, the image display mode is set to tiled - this is the only way I have found to display the image correctly

Hope that gives you some idea of the problem - notice how the bottom seem to be cut off the graphics.

Cheers

Dave

Has anyone used Chris Krstanovics V9 post processor in mastercam X. Its behaving very oddly as for roughing work it is fine, however when I put a finish path in, all the arcs are in the wrong direction (but not in the roughing pass!!!). Anyone else had this problem or got a post that wrosk?

Cheers

Hi Stan

Sounds like the new screen designer is keeping you out of trouble  :P.

With regard to the screen size issue, it occurs in the editor.

Cheers

Dave
