dro as a function
« on: February 15, 2008, 11:49:18 AM »

I would like to have a dro to display a value that is the result of a function.
In this case I want it to display 2 * x_axis_position (to have the diameter in a lathe machine) where X represents the radius (X is correct and displays the radius).

Can this be done ? I have looked everwhere that I could remember.

Brains or VB will do this for you
Brains is probably easier
goto Screen designer can drop your display 2*axis postion dro where every you want it I called the user display dro 2000.

Works. Better than working is that now I understand how it works, and I can make my own.
