New to Mach3. Would like to make wizards
« on: May 21, 2010, 11:21:21 AM »
Hello. I am new to the Mach3 program and would like to start to create wizards. My question is, what language do you need to know to write wizards? I have background in Visual Basic and am intermediate in it, but not a professional. However I have no background in C++ and I have seen people make wizards using this language. Must I know C++ to create wizards or is just VB good? Are there any books or tutorials online I can take a look at to create these wizards? I took a look here but all these tutorials are in C++, and I have no knowledge in this language:

Must I program the code myself or can I use existing code?

Thanks

Wizards are written in VB script. If you open a wizard, and go to Operator>Edit button Script, the flashing buttons contain the VB code. Click one and you'll see how it works.

There's also info in the Mach2 customization guide.

Just what I need, is that document updated to Mach3 anywhere?
