how do i make VB script changes stay?
« on: February 19, 2014, 03:47:30 PM »
my script is in a separate file.  under operator/edit button script I open it, make changes.  I save it, I save as hidden script, I save as back to my file.  next time I open mach3 the old version is back.  I tried rebooting and that didn't seem to make a difference.  I've made it work before, but now can't repeat the process.

If you're using "Edit Button Script", then the script is saved in the screenset, not in a separate file.

Hiddenscript.m1s is a temp file used for editing button scripts.

When using Edit Button Script, just choose File > Save and answer yes to the prompt about Hidden Script and your script should be saved in the screenset.

thank you.  it is very confusing when "save as" asks if you want to replace existing code, but save doesn't.  then the whole "hidden" thing adds to WTF?
