Conversational Wizard/Screen set for Mach
« on: March 27, 2007, 11:13:40 PM »
Hello Mach Group,

    I have made a good start at a conversational Programming Wizard for Mach.

I would like to have the Mach community help, (those that are willing), to make it better. It needs some work, like Conversational Circles, etc.  I did the linear stuff and seveal other things.
Currently it is an advanced Convo-Mdi.......


It needs some art work too, it is just for function now.

Perhaps a Mod will alot a slot on the support group for Convesational Screens/Wizards and there development.

My hope is with community help, it could mature to a stand alone, conversational Screen set as an option (or Wizard).

I will publish the DRO and LED list, there page and function later.
If anyone show an interest in helping this get done.

The Zip File is currently posted on the Mach Support Group, under Screens "works in progress"

Zip is called: "Convo Wizard.zip"

Take a look and tell me what you think, and please fix, add what you can.

wow! nobody.... in my opinion this could be one of the best improvement for mach3 offer two choice standard type of layout or conversational layout, unfortunatly i wouldnt know where to begin to help i would first have to learn vb i guess wich i know very little, anyway great start.

Well...Scott,
 I just posted this over on the CNCZone forum yesterday. I had not seen this thread yet.
I have started working on some wizard screens on my own....actually a take-off from the work I have been doing on a customized screenset of my own.
This first one is a single wizard to do 5 different circle routines on one page. I tried to make it as easy to follow as a Bridgeport EZ-Trak screen.
Let me know if this along the line of what you had in mind.
It is designed for a 1280 x 1024 Screen Resolution but scales down reasonably well using the "Auto Screen Enlarge" button on the general config page

Andy,

   Spectacular WORK!! Your artistic skill far, exceeds my own, (not that I have ever been any good at Graphic design anyway). You Circular Wizards screen is very, very
nice. By all means please feel free to contribute all you want.

Many of the Wizards and Screens (especially mine), or SORLY lacking in good Graphics, by all means Upgrade what ever you want to your hearts content.

Thanks Scott,
 I  downloaded the zip file for your wizard that you posted at the beginning of the thread but it opens to a blank screen in Mach. Am I missing something?
My wizard started out as a page in my screenset but I broke it out as a wizard for others. I was making a screenset that had everything that I use on the first page...minus any wizardlike stuff. Here is a screen shot of my 1st page.
 I am expecting to make some other wizards but it takes time to do the graphics.
Andy

I have edited this post to attach the Screenset files.
The screenset is called "Eye Candy" because of the colorful graphics
The install instructions are in a readme file in the zip

Andy,
Very good. The screen just speaks of repetitive ease of use.
Don't be shy and by all means post some of that engraving work.
Will the wizard ever be available?
