You can look at them via VB and do what you want depending on state.
If you want to use that from within G Code then save the VB as a m101.m1s (or higher number) You will then get Mach calling the macro from G Code by entering m101 (or whichever number you chose)

Thank you Hood-- Am i correctly presuming that VB is visual basic?
I have not got as far as writing macros yet.
I will pass on this for a few more sessions until i learn about macros

best regards

Ok, I presume this is a Lathe?
Attached is a simple macro, place it in the macro folder of the profile you are using. When you call M123 it will look to see if referenced, if not it will stop the code then pop up a message box. If it is referenced it will just continue and will display a message in the ticker saying so.
