Knee Mill Mach3 On Screen Calculator
« on: April 14, 2017, 10:45:47 PM »
I am trying to build a basic calculator on a manual mill "3 Axis Digital Readout" screenset. The calculator is built (buttons and DRO) And I understand how to write the VB script to the buttons, but I don't see how the DRO will work or how to Identify it in my script.
Any help will be greatly appreciated,
Max ?

Hi Max,

have a look at my samples, one of them is just doing what you want to do.

Thanks Klause,
The calculator is very nice! I have a screenset that I want to use with a calculator that is built in to the screen that I use for a digital read out when the mill is being used in manual mode. I would like the calculator to be part of that screen and not a pop up window. Do you know how to do this?
Thanks,
Max

Hi Max

the keyboard sample isn't a popup window, it's a screenset page . Just put the keyboard part of the sample to your screenset page and adapt it to your needs.
