Mach4 Wizard screen shot
« on: August 08, 2013, 09:41:23 AM »
I wanted to show you an example of a wizard that I did in the new lua scripting engine. As you can tell you can have combo boxes.  buttons, Text boxes, images and so on.. This example will be open source and I am thinking about making a modual for LUA to help with making wizards so everyone will not need to know how to program LUA..

Enjoy!
Brian

I think it's worth stressing here that this was done 100% in the new scripting language Mach4 will be using. It is Lua and much more powerful than the Cypress enable in Mach3.

Yup.. 100% script! You can also imbed this script into the screen so you can add functions like this to your screen :)
 I can't wait to see what everyone will do with this over time.

Thanks again Brian,

Interesting, How about sending down a version so I can try it AND a manual. If I can master it then almost anyone can if NOT?

This looks great! Good job! I am just starting to try and learn Lua coding. I need a similar wizard that can do linear hole patterns rather than circles. Sounds like it shouldn't be too hard to modify this code to achieve a wizard for linear hole patterns but I really don't know where to start. Any Ideas that might help or have you seen a wizard that can already do this?



Thanks,
Rich

1 Looks nice and clean. I like it.
2 I am one of your newbee user. What is a Drill cycle? Everything else was self explanatory. Maybe if I had the pull down feature to look at the list of option, it would be clear as to what it is. Or put a hint on the first item of the list.
