That is a nice clean screen Gerry. I'd help test it if I had time but will be at least a few weeks before I could. Hopefully there will be some helpers come your way sooner than that.

Gerry, what do you want tested? I thought this was just fictional at this point, no?

Just looking for comments, don't need any testing, although it'd be nice to know everything works correctly on other PC's.

Fictional???  ;)

Yes, fictional as in not "for real" yet?  :D

I'm having a look at it now and I was curious to know as what use is the simulate run button if you don't have an elapsed time DRO? Do you somehow utilize that for something else?

Love the program run/run program buttons, that's a slick and a really nice feature. It looks and feels great - :)

That's why I wanted feedback. :) Never used the simulate button. So It works with the elapsed time DRO? Thanks. I'll look into that later.

Actually the DRO is called "Estimate Time" and the format string looks like this "%.2f"    (no quotes)

OK, fixed the simulate and changed the Reset button. I'm going to redo the plain LED's so they match the LED buttons better.

I'm still confused about run from here. Screen4 says the system function is "set next line". Set next line uses OEM156, which is "set this line as next to execute". The Set next Line button works, but I don't know how to use Run From Here. Anyone?

Gerry, I'm not sure I'm understanding what you're after with run from here.

You scroll through the GCode in the code window down to where you want to "run from here" and then click the run from here button. Is that what your asking?
