OK, I figured out a little bit about the Pages (not tabs).

Default, is the background page, and everything placed on Default will display on every page.
Changing pages from a button is actually very easy.
Add multiple pages, and when you add a button, and click on its Events (lightning bolt), there's a GoTo Page option, which lets you select the page to go to.

I don't know the Lua call to change pages, which I think Terry's looking for?

Thanks Gerry for the info.
Now I can try out some things for the lathe screen that had me baffled.

The first page is always displayed as gerry said
so if nothing is on it, nothing gets displayed
all other pages can be called and jumped around with buttons
have not found a scr command to jump to a page.

has to be one... don't ya think?

OK lets get this straight I have tabs working . Craig gave me /explained thecode and it works.

ARE yall saying there are ALSO pages we can work with or are pages and TABs the same thing. The only problem I find with tabs and using open exit scripts IS they run when Mach4 starts UP and shuts DOWN it runs again. NOT GOOD

(;-) TP

Yes, read my previous posts. There are pages, just like Mach3.

Is there a list of the .scr calls somewhere?

This is going to be very painful without documentation.

i found it by starting to retype a command and the options came up for me to choose from, kind of a lucky oops

the list of wx.wxlua file I posted was created that way, what a tedious process
copied and pasted every command I could find that started with a wx.wx into a script then cut and pasted all to a text file.


also the load script routine is where the global variables get set, so I believe using a pageId = 2 would be the page it starts in

pageId = 0
screenId = 0
testcount = 0
machState = 0
machStateOld = -1
machEnabled = 0
machWasEnabled = 0
enableBlink = 0
enableBlinkCount = 0
jogstate1 = 0
a = 0
Hz = 0
