Mach4 Pokeys57E Registers
« on: March 24, 2019, 02:07:19 PM »
I haven’t installed the Pokeys57E plugin yet because I don’t have the device yet. Will the plugin show the Pokeys registers in the Mach4 Register Diagnostics? Like this picture below.

If so I assume I could get and set the value of the Pokeys pin with code like this:
Code: [Select]
function GetRegister(regname)
local inst = mc.mcGetInstance()
local hreg = mc.mcRegGetHandle(inst,string.format("iRegs0/%s", regname))
return mc.mcRegGetValueString(hreg)
end

--add TB 01-09-18 add Pirce Delay Register value
local inst = mc.mcGetInstance()
local val = mc.mcProfileGetString (inst, "Registers", "PierceDelay" , "nf")
local hreg = mc.mcRegGetHandle (inst, "iregs0/PierceDelay" )
mc.mcRegSetValueString(hreg, val)
--end add

Will changing the pin value change the pin state?

Looks like there are PoKeys registers, lots of them.

Don't know about changing value changing state.

Thank you Tom,
That answers all my questions. I should be able to change the value and state of most of those "pins" with code.
