No problems. If you read my 2010 manual, it has a section on how to modify the homing scripts.

I'm STILL reading it.... ;)
I can't find the code notes on the refcombination( 19 ) yet.  What would that look like?
Or where would I look to view it.?
I'd also like to insert them(the code notes) like you have for your DoButtons.

Thanks,
john

RefCombination(19) would home the X, Y, and B axes together

ah..... now I remember Art explaining the number combinations.   I might, probably, have a file somewhere with his notes.  I've got a lot of catching up to do.....

Hi Gerry,
 After getting up this morning I realized how idiotic my posts were from yesterday.  They were all based on the old acronym RTFM. ::)
Honestly, I wonder if I am losing it faster than I am gaining.   It could be a touch of senility sneaking in complicated with the influx of radon gas saturating the atmosphere here in my basement.  
Sorry...

No problem at all.

90% of the questions I get can be answered with RTFM. ;)

Thanks for the kind words, btw.

 Hello !

 There is one feature in Screenset 2010 that I'm not able to understand:

 - What is the purpose of 'DE-Ref all axis' ? Why would I want to dereference all my axis ?


 - I'm a registered user of SC2010... Will I receive a mail notification if a new release is made available ?
 

 Thank you !

The standard screen has a De-Ref button, so I added it. I have no idea what you'd use it for.

There most likely won't be any more updates. If there are, I send them out to all users.

 Thanks Gerry.

 I have made some research about this Deref button (Which is in the standard screen, you're right) and nothing really clear !

 I'm having another question, which are related to Mach3 and/or Screenset 2010, I don't know...


 I'd like to use Output to manage some LEDs...

 For example: 

 LED on when click START (And START has been 'accepted' of course)
 LED off when click STOP, etc...

 The idea is to hook some external LED which are available on a command pulpit to have better overview of the process...

 Two problems:

 When cliking the Start button, it calls an 'internal function' which is called start.  I don't know how to modify it to add this feature !

 Some others button calls a script, for example: M889.m1s (Simple auto zero) or M885.m1s (REF X)

 I'd like to activate an output (To a LED)

 LED should be on until the script M885 has been finished or cancelled.

Example:

ActivateSignal(OUTPUT7)
DoButton(22)
'Code "G53 G0 X1"
'While IsMoving()
'Wend
 DeActivateSignal(OUTPUT7)
 

 Doesn't work ;-(

 IK don't know exactly how to hook output management into Mach3...

 Could someone Help ?   Hope I'm clear enough !

 Thank you !
