Mach4 logging facility
« on: March 25, 2017, 02:02:53 PM »
Can anyone tell me whether they can replicate this problem.  Just load mach4lathe profile and then go to 'Diagnostics->Logging...' and see if you get the standard logging window or a window that has nothing yet has a taskbar presence.  I have it on two machines and get the same invisible window.  If I load Mach4mill I get the standard logging window.

I have re-installed on one of those machines both using ver 3233.

TIA

Hi,
I just tried opening the logging window in the lathe screenset and found as you have, namely the window is invisible
but it does show on the taskbar as an active window.

I've had no problems with logging in the wx4 set. I presume that the logging feature must be a part of the screen set.

Using build 3233.

Hi,
just tried some experiments. Did a few ops which I would expect to be logged but the log window remains blank.

I am no programmer but if I had to guess I would say that the 'frame or panel' has been coded but nothing
else has, ie the menu bar, the text area etc.

Thanks Craig,

I was supposed to send a log file demonstrating lathe's miss handling of G31 calls but can't send a log file that doesn't exist.  Seems like mach4 lathe is once again the red headed step sister like mach3 turn.  I guess I have to open another support ticket.

Modifying the machine.ini file for the [Log Window] entry to a screen position like 5,5 brings the window into view.  Anyone with less than 1725 pixels in width will not be able to get to the window unless they modify the ini.

Thanks Brett

No problem, thanks for letting us know. That's one of those things that can be a non issue for some and a pain for others. Ill fix it in the default profiles hopefully before next release.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D
