adding visual basic objects to the screen?
« on: July 21, 2009, 11:47:48 AM »
We are finding VB difficult with Mach 3 Is there  a tutorial on this anywhere?

specifically right now:

Is it possible to add an OCX object or an active X control to the screen?  We would like to put a Mschart object to record torch tip voltage, and be able to watch the chart as it runs

In general, does Mach3 allow all visual basic objects like the Mscomm, mscharts,etc... to be used?


Thanks in advance.

Hi, Denverwelder

At some point Mach was using a version of Cyprus basic "I think", Hopefully someone can give you better info soon on this.

Mach macros use Cypress Enable: http://www.cypressinc.com/proddes.htm  The only visual objects you can use are those built into Mach, except for VB modal dialogs.
