Status bar and messages
« on: July 05, 2007, 07:50:54 PM »
Hi All:
I'm experimenting with messages to the operator from within the Gcode.
For example, i will program an M01 pause and put a message in the program to "change the part".
While this message shows up on the Status label, it does not go away.
Is there a way to clear the Status label from within the program and after the cycle is started again?
Thanks
LEW

Try this:
"  "

a line or 2 later
basically a message with no characters. My machine is down now so I can't try it, but I don't see why it won't work

Thanks, Mark:
I should have thought of that. It's a really simple fix. It works very well. I actually used this:
( )
(change the part)
m01
( )
