pop up numeric key pad
« on: January 11, 2009, 11:56:31 AM »
I have been playing with the Ellipse wizard that was posted on the site and I noticed that when I went to select the Dro a very nice numeric key pad pops up.
Does anyone no where I can get this function? I prefer it over a full key board function.
My second question is how  to make a DRO read only (data input not desired)?

Thank you for any ideas.

If you mean a dro that you cannot enter a value into, that would be the MACHINE COORD DRO's which can only be changed/set by the homing routine. You can only enter values into the PART COORD dros.

Thank you RC,

I have a number of DROS that are populated in a wizard screen and I make the cut path calculations based on these numbers.
When I go back to the standard layout I would like to see these values but not let the operator change them.
This will allow the operator to see the layout for the cut and the numbers that derived it before cutting or just allow them to see what has been entered
on the setup screen (the wizard screen).
I hope this makes sense.
I thought maybe I would use a Brain that runs in the background that continuously populates the viewing DROS with data from the wizard DROS?
What ever is the easiest way of getting the settings visible from the run screen.

Thank you.

Hello,
NOT exactly sure what you want to do, but a brain or macro might handle it.
That however is getting beyond my capabilities.
Hopefully someone else can help out here.
