Brian,
I Think my Macropump is working..... But I need to get a Grex hooked up on my tests system so I can Check Inputs as Hotkeys dont work in flash. So I will let you know when I get that setup.
Thanks

Mike

I tested your code and it was not working... Please use the code that I posted and test in the 1024.set file Then after you have seen it work in that screen set test it in Flash.

thanks
Brian

Hello all,
may be a bit off topic, but searched for "ActivateSignal":

My problem is this: I just installed a 2nd PCI printer port to my PC, now wanted to test the signals.
I configuren Mach's outputs #10...#15 to Port 2 Pin 1...6.

Q: How can I Activate and Deactivate these outputs by a macro? I tried "ActivateSignal(10)" but compiler gave me syntax error. What is the proper syntax? The manual/wiki reads that an integer must be in the brackets. But which one e.g for Output#10 ?

Thanks for helping an beginner in macro-programming.
Regards
Holger

Holger,

Use:

ActivateSignal(OUTPUT10)       'the all caps for output is needed, download the VB off the wiki for signal names
DeActivateSignal(OUTPUT10)

Thank you Scott, I overlooked just this page in the Wiki.

These VB Constants are related to the designations in the "Config - Ports and Pins"-Menu? There it reads Output #10 and ActivateSignal(OUTPUT10) will switch just this pin?

Thanks
Holger

Thanks again, I just tested this ActivateSignal(...) positive!

How often will WinXP change the address of this PCI printer port card? How to fix it to a permanent address? Mine was different from yesterday, when I installe the card.

Regards
Holger

XP should only change the address if you add other PCI cards or move that one to a different PCI slot.

Hello Hood,
I'll keep an eye on this. After the initial tests on the printer port I really installed an USB-card, then tested only the USB matters (camera window in mach). So this was the reason surely.
btw, Mach did not show any problem with the address in the 0x4000 or ox7000 range.
Thanks & Regards
Holger
