When you see the properties for the button. You will see a properties with a lightning bolt through it. You just copy and past the code in the on clicked script.

One problem i seem to be having is the rc return value from the g31, i get 0 back if the probe is hit or has run to the end of the travel
if i run to the the end of travel i get the message in the history that probe interrupted but still no error value returned in the rc only 0.
so when i check for the error the code skips over the error and return statements, and just keeps running.

this it the line i am running
rc = mc.mcCntlGcodeExecuteWait(inst, string.format("G91 G31 Z-%.3f F%.3f", ZMaxTravel, SlowFeed))     --probe Z

Thanks gary

Hello,
Is this with the ESS ? if so you need to change a setting in the config.. Don't know what it is off the top of my head :(

I went back to the ESS and checked my code, i am using the ESS probing register to detect probe hit or if not hit error, not mach4.

I had asked pokeys to add the probing register over a year ago and they did, but they never finished it to get working correct the only values working are when probe starts moving =  2, and   -4  but that value is set when probe is hit or when reached end of travel so no way to tell the difference.
I did email pokeys again a couple days ago but haven't herd back

Thanks gary

I just do the math to see if it hit or not. That is sort of standard for big machines. Am I missing something ? My code I posted needs nothing about the probe hit or not, it will ask tell you if it did
