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.

Guys,
My screenset is attached, I did not know how to attach the Bitmap folder so some of the bitmaps may not show up. If you look at the screen labeled DRO, or screen 8, you will see what I am trying to do. Make an on screen calculator.
Any help would be appreciated.
Max
