Mach4 xbox configure questions
« on: August 19, 2023, 04:07:17 PM »
I've searched and can't find anything on the xbox button configuration.
The dropdown has selections that I don't know what they do. Like the "xbox cont/inc toggle" or how to use the "user gcode1" selection.  may be missing something but is there any descriptions or documentation for this?
The one thing I wanted to do was to increment move an axis like pressing the arrow keys or the screen buttons in incremental mode. Is it possible to do this?
I thought of writting gcode and using the "user gcode1" but so far can not figure out how to use those selections.
Still trying though.
Thank you for any help.

Upon further trying I found Gcode1 in the registers under XBox.   I put in G0X1 and the xbox button does execute the code.
The problem I have now is I need to put in G91 then G0X.001 then G90. How can I put this in a register?

After working on it all day I finally found out putting G91\nG0x.001\nG90 will work.
As far as knowing what the button commands in the xbox plugin are I still don't know.
Isn't there some documentation on the xbox plugin available somewhere?
I can't believe it was written and not explained at all.
