button to jog x and y
« on: October 19, 2011, 09:38:15 AM »
I want to make a button on my pendant that jogs both the x and y simultaneously.
Can I do this in vb script?
Maybe something like;
DoOEMButton(307)
DoOEMButton(309)

OK, So no one is going to bail you out(;-)

It is a yes and no question. Yes it can be done but not directly, you have to go all the way around the block to get it done. You have to use the LPT inputs for those functions and then use a brain to activate deactivate them as a pair.

That I know of it cannot be done directly from the screen. You Can from a plugin .

IF you do a search on the Yahoo site you will find references to the process.
