Hey thanks a lot you saved me some precious time, I didn't think it would be that complicated I just didn't know where to look for mach constants and codes.

Chip,
Thanks for all your help all you have done is great. I basically did the same thing with the VB in Picture buttons that I made and just hit the Esc key when I needed to stop but this is still not what were looking for. The problem of  the not being able release the key and stop the movement where its needed to Stop.

Not sure if it would work but could you not set up an external button for positive direct and another for negative direction. Have these buttons as OEM triggers and write a brain to Jog both axis positive when it sees one of them and jog both axis negative when it sees the other. That way it should only jog when it sees the trigger so releassing the button and it should stop. Or amybe I am not understanding what you want.
