Mach 3 Screen Lockout Buttons/Customize
« on: November 12, 2020, 10:41:55 AM »
Hi,

Is there any way I can customize or lockout certain buttons on the Mach 3 screen? For example, I would need full access to all of the buttons/menu items when troubleshooting/debugging. However an operator running the machine in production would only need access to the cycle start/stop, pause, load g-code buttons. Since there are so many buttons and menu items, the operator could easily press something by accident and cause a mess. I would like to prevent this from happening.

Thanks in advance!

have you tryed the Operator -> Lock and Operator -> Unlock ?

this is only for menuu functions, the rest Needs to be done with a customized screenset.
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

No I haven't tried the operator lock/unlock. I see there is a password to lock it out. Is it a default password?

if you lock, you "define" your pasword to unlock
