Hot Key Codes
« on: January 23, 2009, 02:38:31 PM »
Most of the buttons have a keyboard "hot key" assigned to them but some aren't labeled. How do I know what the hot key is if it isn't labeled?

We know the following since they are labeled...
Cycle Start is Alt + R = 2130
Stop is Alt + S = 2131

BUT buttons like "Load G Code" don't tell me what the hot key is...
All I know is that it is assigned the number 2114. So where can I find the hot key list of what the numbers correspond to.

Thanks
Dave

Look up an ASCII table.

OK, I looked up ASCII tales but could not relate a number like 2114 with them. Maybe a little guidance would help my old feeble brain.

Ok if you have a look at the customising Mach2 manual it will give you some info, from memory Shift is 1024 and Alt is 2048 so you just need to find the code for the key to press with Alt to make it up to your number.

Oh meant to say I think its Alt + L for loading code.

Thanks for the info..
Guess what I was looking for was a nice little sheet that listed them all.
By playing with a button in screen4 I have been able to figure most of them out by trial and error and by following a pattern certain keys generate.

To be honest that is usually what I do, its often quicker.
