Axes jog in MDI-even with jogging turned off
« on: July 30, 2009, 09:12:52 AM »
I have the arrow keys assigned as jogging keys in the input setup and I've noticed that Mach will incrementally (internally) jog axes in MDI even if the button to turn off jogging has been selected (albiet very very slowly)

Is there a way to prevent this?  It's a problem because if you use the arrow keys to cursor through commands, the axes move unexpectedly even with jogging turned off.

Also, I can't find any LED or any other method of determining when MDI is "active" ie.  the user has selected the window to enter a command.  This would be very handy to know -especially for the external jog commands that are required for continuous jogging in a plugin.  I can disablie external jogging if jogging is turned off but I don't like the idea of the axes jogging in MDI while the user thinks he's just cursoring around.

Thanks
