Order of tabs in a window
« on: July 04, 2015, 11:52:09 AM »
Is there a way I can move the Jog tab to be the first tab on the OperationsTabs window? I would like for this to be the first one to appear when I start the machine.

I have tried moving it in Screen Tree Manager but I have not had any success.

Thanks,
Peter

Hi Pedio!  Yep...you can do it in the screen tree manager. You have to take the other tabs before jogging and drop them to the end (or below jogging).

I tried that and it was very erratic on how it worked. when I finally got it to work (and rebooted Mach4) all of the buttons on the tabs had disappeared??? I had a backup  ;D

In your screen load script place

function SetJogTab()
    local inst = mc.mcGetInstance();
    scr.SetProperty('OperationsTabs', 'Current Tab', '3')
end

In your PLC script place

if testcount == 5 then SetJogTab() end

DazTheGas <----- Dont put that ;-)

Ahhh, I see. So you set the OperationsTabs to display the jogging tab upon screen load by making the current tab = jogging tab.

Yah, I went back and my stuff was missing too. Sorry Pedio.

Thanx Daz.    DazTheGas()

well technically, set current tab to 3 on the fifth scan of the PLC; to wit the PLC calls the function defined in the screen load up script....right?

yep its just a fallback to make sure the screen has finished loading first, had mixed results without it

BTW - will I need to redo this the next time Mach4 is upgraded? I am starting to keep a list.

if your profile is wxmach then yes this will get overwritten, if you have a custom profile then you will be ok.
