Help setting up functions for keyboard.
« on: February 11, 2017, 08:52:52 PM »
I read most the stuff on here about keyboards, but what I'm trying to do doesn't seem to be explained. Unless I'm doing it wrong.

Basically, I just want to press, let's say, C on my keyboard have it cycle start. That's it.

How would I go about that?

Ok I'll try that. Where can I find the other codes for other functions?

I need:

Feed Hold
Cycle Start
Incremental Jog
Fast Jog
and then custom feed rates such as F.5 F2 F5 F10

Thanks.

If you have installed Mach4Hobby on your machine, even the demo, then
you will have a folder called DOCS inside your main Mach4Hobby folder. In
there you will find a file named Mach4CoreAPI.chm which is a Windows
help file. Just double click on the file name and it will open a help window.

Look in the section for API Reference by Category for the topic Operations.

Ok so I'm now getting around to this. I see the code in Daz's post. Do I need to put 'end' at the end of each block of code I put in there? So for example

Code for cycle start, end
Code for feed hold, end.
Etc.  etc.

Figured it out. Separate blocks of code for each instance.

Also noticed when clicking on the last part of the name such as, mcCntlCycleStart, a pop up dialog box will come up and you can select the function you need.
