how can I access a button-action from script?
« on: April 27, 2017, 11:30:21 AM »
Hello,

when I look at the events-page of a pushbutton (i.e. GCode open file), then I see an action name, which is localized.
How can I find out the function, that is behind the action name?

Currently I want to combine the actions of 2 pushbuttons, which both have an attached action for "left up" trigger.
One is "gcode file open" and the other is "gcode file close" - as I realized, that I can not load a gcode file, when there is already a gcode file loaded.
I don't like that behaviour, therefore I want to trigger a close gcode file, each time I load a gcode file.

I read the scripting manual for mach4, but did not find any help

The Load GCode Action will already close any open gcode and toolpath thenload the new gcode and recreate the toolpath, so no other programming is required.

Ah ok, that must be new in the developer release. Thanks for your reply.
When I tried it with the 3233 nothing happened on reload - I had to close the file before.
So its ok for the moment. May be I come back to the real question later.

By the way: loading files with non-ascii-character in filename fails with "file not found".
