I'm sure Gerry will post it when he's completed it.

Please remember Gerry is doing this on his own time and of his own free will so give him some time to finish it  ;)

While it runs code, most of the buttons don't work yet. Give me a few more weeks.

I'm not happy with the way the small text looks. I'm trying to keep this so it loads extremely fast (1 second right now, vs 15 seconds for my Aqua screen). I can make the text separate images, and it'll look better, but load slower. I don't like the text labels built into the screen.

Just had an idea, though. I'll try it out later. :)

Started playing with Visual Studio 2010 and decided to update all the controls to match. Looks a lot better, but I had to start over from scratch.

Is that using the new mach4 version variables?
If not have you looked at how or if you could handle both versions?
how do you like VS 2010?

No. Not sure if there's documentation on the new stuff yet??

It's just a very simple screen set. Whatever I can fit on the one screen, or the 25% that's left after the toolpath. :)

No, as I really don't even have the time to be doing this in the first place. This is basically time learning MachScreen and trying a few ideas.


Anyway, here's where I'm at after day 1.

Actually, I'm only using the Form Designer, and copying and pasting elements into Photoshop.

99% of my programming is VBA in AutoCAD. But Microsoft is going to force me to learn VB.net, so I'm going to slowly poke around when I have the time. Probably won't get too deep into it until winter.

I believe this is the file that will help me in the future convert my plugin's over. Assuming it is current and correct.
I am sure it's a work in process cause toward the end it gets a little confusing.

I'm more of a winter programmer too, rather be outside cutting chips in the summer.

Question: you work for Microsoft on Autodesk products?

Question: you work for Microsoft on Autodesk products?

No, I work in a cabinet shop. Mostly programming a big router. I write a lot of AutoCAD VBA macros, both to make my job easier, and also as kind of a hobby. Pretty much all the 2.5D g-code I run at home is generated from within AutoCAD using a macro I wrote. And at work, I wrote a macro to export individual .dxf files of cabinet parts, along with a parts list in .csv format. We have AlphaCAM, which will read the .csv, and create g-code and nest all the parts. Ready to run nested code from nothing in a few minutes.

The problem is that Microsoft is dropping support of VBA, and Autodesk may soon as well. It hasn't been included in the last two releases of AutoCAD, but is still available for download.

I'd like to write a full featured cabinet package that runs in AutoCAD. Since VBA probably won't be around much longer, .net here I come.
