Image Buttons and images on screen
« on: May 07, 2014, 04:11:18 PM »
I do not see a way to bring in your OWN images only the prepackaged ones can you access.

Where are the Images stored ??

Thanks Craig, Now that makes a nice looking  "Mach4 Manuals "   Page having the manual cover pages  as the Button image to open.

I have loading PDF s working as well so I can load either *.TXT or *.PDF and STILL run Mach4 at the same time.

NOW IF it could only make coffee (;-)

NOW I did just hang a sign on the PUTOR it says DO NOT JUMP DOWN THE MACH4 RABBIT HOLE. IT WILL CONSUME YOU like mach3 did.

You can have all the hot keys you would like.. BUT you have to map them as inputs.. We are not making the KB part of the GUI, that was a Mach3 thing. We want an input device like pokeys and or PLC to be able to do input as well as the KB.
Fixing problems one post at a time ;)

OK SO HOW do you do that ??. I have 24 {f} keys I use for Functions in lue of the MOUSE. I need to assign them to screen buttons and /or functions.

ALSO a horror story with the screen editor. Working on a screen set and it started acting funny. It would NOT align a set of buttons. OK so I had better save and stop. DID THAT and it scrambled the screen set on save. When I open it in mach4 the buttons I was working with showed up on the main program screen behind other stuf and on the page I was working on half the buttons would NOT show up until I clicked on the page.

Lost that screen set,  (;-) TP

I think Brian put up a post on how to configure the keyboard plugin. 

For the screen editor, you cannot align controls that are in separate containers.  A container is a page, group box, or notebook page.  A control on page 0 (Default) will always show up and it may appear that it occupies the same container.  But appearances are just that, appearances.  It is hard to catch things like that (read impossible) in the screen editor because we can't tell that you didn't mean to do that!!!  Because it is perfectly acceptable in some circumstances.  Look at the tree on the left to tell where a control is actually placed.  It will have a parent.  That is a good way to figure out if an accident happened.

Making a copy of the screen set before you edit it is a good idea.
