The shorter the code the faster it is likely to load so the shorter you could have the sleep but having a 1 or 2 second sleep would probably be ok for you and would almost guarantee it would start with any lenghth of code.

I thought Brian had the sleep issue fixed so we did not need it anymore???????

Sleep() worked as a crutch BUT it really needs to be fixed so we don't need it. Really HARD to "GUESS" what value will work . I gues Rich's use of semaphores may be required after all(;-) just to be on the safe side.

woooooooohoooooooo

we have a winner!


i set up 8 place holders with buttons, code and images so co users can simply create any code they want and save into GCODE folder in format MACROFILE1.NC, MACROFILE2.NC, etc etc   and add userbitmaps named MACROIMAGE1.JPG, MACROIMAGE2.JPG, etc in the bitmaps folder. all tested and running well!
