Scott,

I see what you mean. No point then adding the H DRO which would display the obvious.

Scott, I think you will need to wait for Brian to add the offset call in to Turn. I have asked for it for probably a couple of years now and still not got it, hope it will be in Rev 4 but also hope I live long enough, getting old now, was 45 yesterday  ;D

As for whats on other screens then I will leave that to others as I just have a one page setup for most of Mach functions and what I do have on other pages you seem to have on that main page.

Hello again,

    Sorry, I have been away for a few weeks doing the Army school training crap......  So, I will try and get back to this.......
BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Can some one pass me ALL the Bit Maps that Phil did?  (for the wizard stuff, main wizard nave page, and individual wizard pages?  Or, Phil can you send them to me? who ever?

Also, this is a HUGE TIME SINK HOLE!!!  I would REALLY appreciate some help!!! (Phil, other experienced screen designers, do you want to collaborate?, I am using the: "real draw pro" to do the bitmaps, and Klaus,s screen designer......)
(Please experienced screen designers speak up, I can send the Real Draw Pro project files to you as well). Phil did such a NICE job on those Lathe Wizard Bit Map Icons that I don't see any point in recreating that wheel....

Just a heads up for you Scott, Brian added a DRO for me yesterday that is combined tool number and offset number. I have also found out I can add text before the numbers so it reads T0112 or whatever.
Afraid it cant be used at the moment as the Dev version will have to be updated but the OEM is 245 if you want an offset only DRO to go with the tool number DRO or OEM246 if you want the combined number and offset DRO as pictured below.
To get the leading zeroes in the DRO then the format string is %04.0f  if you alsoo want the T then  its just T%04.0f

I use Screen4 and the format string can be input with it but I believe MachScreen does not allow this of yet, I think Dan will be contacting Klaus to request that but not 100% sure.

Thanks Hood,

To All (involved in this thread):

  I keep asking (and begging?), can someone PLEASE send me the Bitmaps from Phils' screen set?  I need the ones from the Wizard navigation page,
and the bitmaps from the wizard pages that, the main wizard pick page sends you to..........  He did some really nice bitmaps and I need a copy of them
so I DON'T have to recreate them.......

Scott,
I'll get them to you.
There is a thread and you can download his screen so that would give you the bit maps. Just can't find the posting.....

Hey Rich,

   Unfortunately, NONE of the down-loadable zips have the Bit maps I need..........
I see where you where showing screen shots of the Wizard navigation page, and some of the Wizard pages them selves,
those bitmaps of the ICONS for the various wizard functions is what I am missing.......

if you have them, (or Phil or whoever), can you email them to me at:  poppabear(AT)hughes(DOT)net
