Request for LUA advice: Startup menu script
« on: September 22, 2019, 01:49:50 PM »
Hi All,

I am looking to create a simple pop-up menu which requires me to click through a number of steps before I can start using the machine. Ideally it would come up as soon as the Mach 4 graphics load, and have the following steps:

1) Oiling reminder
2) Configure my machines servo drives over serial (unique to my machine)
3) Enable the Axes
4) Home the machine
5) Enable Soft Limits
6) Ask if I want to run a spindle warm-up program
etc.

What would be the best LUA element to use for this menu? I guess I could just pop up lots of message boxes, but I was hoping there might be a more intelligent element to use.
