Allowing DRO values to change via user input in Mach3
« on: July 20, 2013, 06:10:34 PM »
Hi Everyone, I am new to Mach3 and Screen4 and am trying to simply create my own screenset that allows the user to change/edit the values in the DROs I have placed on the screen.  When I load the 1024.set file (the standard .set file), the X,Y,Z DROs on that page are changeable by clicking on them, typing "27" for example, pressing enter, and the value is shown as changed on the screen.

Basically, I need 4 input fields that can serve as variables for a VB macro I am creating.  When I try to edit my screenset's DRO values in Mach3, they don't change.  Is there some setting I need to change somewhere? (i.e. in the "General Config" section or somewhere like that?).  I tried searching for this topic on the forums, but had no luck.

Thanks,
