Show first line of G-Code
« on: August 30, 2019, 03:17:49 PM »
Hi,
 I am working on creating a custom screen set for myself. I would like a text line to show the first line of code from my g-code.
Basically my first line of code is the "name" of the saved tool path. I would like a text line to always show the name of the running toolpath.
Can some one help me with a script or code for this?
Thank You

if you are talking about Mach3, a Label with Content File will Show you the filename of loaded program.
i do not know about a possibilty to Show only the first line of gcode, except your create a VBScript witch is
used every time you load a new file, this will only work with a button on Screen, not with Standard menue load file.
anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.
