error, but only when calling from within Mach3
« on: May 18, 2007, 11:39:28 AM »
My problem is such.. Used the VB editor within Mach to edit... which is frustrating enough, as it is not saving reliably.... ugh..
using the "play" button in the editor, checks out fine.. works fine..  everything SEEMED to work fine yesterday when i wrote all this, but now i'm getting an error "error on line 84--internal error <homeit>"
This corresponds to the "getoemled(800)" line within the "homeit" sub...

also getting an error on Line 88... corresponds to "msgbox........" line

this code is contained within the "reset" button, and I'm using it to do maintenance prompts, and a "must home before running" lockout...
anybody have any thoughts/suggestions?
Thanks in advance!!

*edit* running mach Version R2.0.061  on the laptop being used for testing anyway.
