I checked the VB code in screen designer and it's right.
I used Screen4 and I dont think you can see the script.....just that it is a VB button.
You can read the script in the running screen under OPERATOR/EDIT BTN SCRIPT.
It works fine here.

I use screen 4 to change it to a VB button. I go into Mach and then operator and edit button script and cannot get an editing page for the ref z. I have the display mode button flashing, the load material, up and down MP1000 control, the send to MP1000 button and the xfr button all blinking. But I cannot edit the ref z button.
And I can see the VB script for the ref z button in screen designer in  MACH3screen.exe. That tells me the script is correct.

Just use Screen4 only.
Open your screen in Screen4.
Make the REF button a VB button.
Save and close Screen4.
Then start Mach Plasma (your profile with the same screen)
Operator/Edit Button Script.
Then.........Click on your new pulsing VB button.
Fill in the instructions and save.
Should work.

I finally got it working. I had to reload the screen set with view in MACH for it to work. Even though the profile was loading when MACH started, the changes i made to it did not take effect until I reloaded in the view of MACH.


it's always the simplest things it seems like.

Thank you for your help and not yelling at me.
