Hi Hood

Program Lockout tested: makes no difference whether program lockout is ticked or not.

Single step mode through test program: executing the T command stops the spindle if it is spinning and actives the standard dwell.

Sigh.

Just dont understand that at all, can you  zip and email your whole macro folder from the machine and I will test with that.
Will pm you my email address.

Hi Hood

OBVIOUSLY!
But the more interesting Q now is where did this come from? I did not edit that file myself, and so far I cannot find the original source. Beats me...

Never mind: I am extremely grateful to you for this! If I can help in any other way, please let me know.

Cheers

Dont know, maybe it was in some earlier version and it has stuck but I have never seen it before, then again I never look at the standard macros as mine are mostly custom.
At least the problem has been found, thats all that matters :)

Seems to say it was modified on 14th Dec 2010 so maybe you had  a visit from one of the Ghosts of Christmas that likes messing with VB ;D

Hi Hood

Confirming all is well after a real test on the machine.

Hum ... it may be that the supplier sent me some updates about then. The machine was originally designed for teaching use, and they may have 'modified' it to keep little fingers from being minced. My best guess.
