Keypad for any Input DRO (including user-defined DROs)
« on: April 07, 2014, 10:41:25 PM »
Is there a way to simply have a customizeable keypad pop up in Mach3 that will allow the user to enter a value for a particular DRO on the screen?  We are developing something for a tablet and this would be really helpful.

The MachScreen Kaypad only can do this for 1-6 DROs, they cannot be user-defined DROs, and I need between 5-9 on 17 different screens (that is more than 100).

The Auto Calculator might work for you. I think it works with all DRO's.
It's a bit tricky in that you have to type a zero before the decimal point for anything less than 1.0000 and you have to hit the +/- button to enter a neg. value. Then hit Enter of course.
It works well once you get used to it.

Is there a way to make that popup bigger or customize the size?  The default size has buttons that are too small for a touchpad.

There probably is a way but it is above my level.
Would be nice to be able to comfortably use it with a touch screen though.
Good luck to ya,
