Screen Editor - Hide bar
« on: January 15, 2018, 07:14:51 AM »
Hi everyone,

Is there a way to hide the toolbar with File, View, Config....? I have a pretty small touchscreen and hiding the bar would give some more estate.

Thank you,
Martin

I don't know of a way to remove the tool bar, but you have the options to make the window full screen by going to View>Full Screen in Mach4. I hope this helps and I will report back if I hear of another solution for you.

In the screen load script, insert the line:

scr.ShowMenu(false);

to get the menu back:

scr.ShowMenu(true);

Be careful not to paint yourself into a corner!  :)  Put a button on a tab to turn it back on, etc...

Thank you Steve. I will try that.

Is there a way to start Mach in fullscreen?

Thanks,
Martin

If you close it in full screen, it will open in full screen.

Hey Steve- Can you show an example of the code that you would need to have in the screen load script?

In the screen load script, insert the line:

scr.ShowMenu(false);

to get the menu back:

scr.ShowMenu(true);

Be careful not to paint yourself into a corner!  :)  Put a button on a tab to turn it back on, etc...

I guess I am looking for the don't back yourself into the corner button code..  ;D Or how to make sure I don't back myself into the corner.. Making a button that I can press on and off to turn the menu turn on or off.

The painting yourself into a corner comment was about making sure you leave a way to get the menu bar back on the screen if you need it.  Edit the screen and drop a button on any page/tab you want.  Or create a new tab, etc...

Just a button with:

scr.ShowMenu(true);  --in the button up event script property

Or a toggle button to toggle between on and off

scr.ShowMenu(true); -- in the button up event script property

and

scr.ShowMenu(false); -- in the button down event script property

Use the screen load script to set the initial state of the menu bar, if needed.
