User DRO numbers
« on: April 15, 2015, 11:18:10 PM »
I have a plasma set screen with custom DROs. I am trying to figure out the UserDRO numbers for writing VB script. I found them at one time, but now I can't remember how. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

If you are asking how to find out what the DRO numbers are in your screenset then using Screen4 or MachScreen should let you see that.

I tried MachScreen, I can get my screenset opened and add buttons, DROs, ect, but I couldn't figure out how to assign numbers or view the existing DRO numbers. I'll have to keep working with it till I figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks

Afraid I can't help with MachScreen as I don't use it. In Screen4 all you would do is double click the DRO you want and a window would pop up with all the info about that DRO.

Thanks, maybe I'll try Screen4. Sounds like it might be easier.

I don't use Machscreen either, but isn't there a floating properties window? When you select the DRO, it should show the DRO #.

Yeah, I found the properties window. The problem was that I wasn't double clicking the DROs.

Thanks for the help

In machscreen under Design tick Overview and you will see a listing of everything about the screen. Now if you create a spread sheet of that listing you can easily sort by DRO.

Just a thought FWIW,
