This is a rehash of the plugin I did for Mach3, that allowed
you to take a 4 or 6 axis pendant that plugins into a motion board or Para-Port.
If you have the 6 axis version you have the option of using axis 5 and 6 to
control FSOVR and SSOVR respectively via the MPG wheel.
The issue at this point is getting MPG functions to actually work the outputs.

Well here is an update on the Pendant project.
LUV'N wxGrid, I put in "ComboBox" drop downs in the grid where users can pick which Input or Output signal they want mapped to the Pendants functions.
Put in real time signal monitoring so you can debug your pendants I/O (not the MPG signals).

There is also quick "Help Dialog" for setting stuff up under the Help Menu.

Any more progress on this plugin? Does it only work with certain Chinese models of pendants?
