Extra macros could be added, but you would need to decide what buttons would fire them, and how many you want to add........

Hey, since you guys have the source code handy.....  Howzabout modifying it so we can have more than two macro buttons?  Looks like a straight-forward change to make, but I don't have VC++, so no way to compile it myself.  I'd love to have at least four macro buttons - but the more the merrier!

Regards,
Ray L.

This is exactly what I was after and I'm in the same boat as Ray as I would not be able to do any programming at all (dunce here).

Scott or Lemo, is it possible to just have pull down menus for all buttons that would include macro functions for any button of choice? Or is that getting too complicated to do?

Thanks Brett for making this available  :)

Thanks,
Dave

Hi:

  Just to kick in .. You do need VS2003 to compile the plugins, the missing h files are just the Machincludes folder that you need to install. Dont be fooled by compiling under vs2008, while it will sometimes compile the pointers get hosed and it wont work.

  Check Ebay for vs2003, but its about 85.00 these days typically. VC6 can probably do the compile as well.

There is a thread on the forum somewhere where a plugin can be made to work in vs2008, it uses different headers and has a wizard to generate the main core, but youd have to copy the relevent
parts of the plugin to the wizard created shell. Then vs2008 could recompile it. Sorry I dont have time at the moment to get involved in your project myself or Id help out. I suggest you find that VS2008 wizard for plugins if you have vs2008, it works pretty slick and woudl give you the general framework you need to make the shuttle plugin work with whatever compiler you use.

I'll see if I can find VS2003 somewhere. The MachPluginWizard doesn't seem to be ready yet.
I'm pretty busy myself and don't have to much time for experiments myself.
This will have to stay on the back burner till I get a copy of VS2003.
Thanks for the hints Art

OK, those of you with a Shuttle Pro please test this plug in.

I added 10 total custom macros, and I added a "Reverse Axis" option for Axis X-C.

Let me know how the Reverse axis works, since there is another section of code that deals with jogging, but I think it is for something different, could be wrong of course.

Remember to save out your current shuttle pro .dll

Scott,

I just tried the new macros, and they worked just fine.  Only bad thing is, it clobbered my previous configuration, by re-assigning many of the buttones to the new macros.  Did you change the IDs for existing button functions, rather than adding the new ones onto the end of the list?  Obviously not an issue for anyone installing from scratch, but kind of a PITA for someone upgrading.

Ray L.
