Machine coords button
« on: November 20, 2010, 05:49:26 PM »
Would it be possible to have the machine coords button change it's icon to work offset when toggled.

It annoys the hell out of me.

Yes but what you would have to do is have an invisible button and the LED look like a button. Probably the best way to explain is to show a couple of screenshots of my screens. Will post in a few.

Ok heres a few images, first shows the button in MPG mode, second in Jog mode, third shows the button in Screen4 and you can see its actually a LED and the button is an image button on top of it with no image selected, in other words its invisible. Last one shows the actual LED layout.

The hard part of making a screen for me is making the buttons and LEDs etc because I am not artistic. The actual making or changing of a screen is simple enough using either Screen4 (my preference) or MachScreen(most others  preference)
Think there are a few vids that Benny did showing how to make the double LEDs up, they should be in the Screen part of the forum.

Look at the leds.wmv on the ftp site, it shows how to make the LED. Also some vids there for Screen4 and possibly MachScreen.
