macro for adjusting jog speed
« on: September 14, 2018, 12:52:22 PM »
hi everybody,

i was searching and trying a lot but i cannot find the solution.

i have a xbox attached to mach3 and i want two custom macros to set the jog speed. one for 100% and one for 2%. each macro should be activated with a button press. that way i can jog with one hand only the 2 speeds.

i tried creating a macro:
Call SetOemDro(3,2)

that should set the jog speed to 2%. i named that macro M799.m1s and put it in the right folder. when i want to try to execute the macro from the MDI it says scripter compile error in m799.m1s.

could anybody help here?

thanks,
michael

there must be something else in your macro witch causes the Compiler error.

if i run

Call SetOemDro(3,2)

here it works fine, make sure that there is a CRLF at the end of the line.
anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.
