LED overlay possible?
« on: May 15, 2006, 05:32:16 PM »
I have adapted the Touch Screen by zealouse and used Benny's DRO skinĀ  to suit my needs, hope its OK with you guys?
 I was wanting to have text on some of theĀ  LED's rather than at the side. I was hoping to make a skin up so that when active the text would show but it seems like LEDs cant be skinned. Is there any way to do this? An example of the LED I would like to do is the Constant Velocity LED, my screen can be seen here http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/hoodsmachiningpages/Mach3screen.jpg and I would rather have the text on the LED rather than at the side.

You will have to check out the way led skin are made in the tutorial I posted.
The process is not as sraight forward as you would expect. Follow the tut closely and it will work for you.

Benny I cant seem to add it to the screen. When I try to add it with the LED control in Screen 4 I dont have the option of using an image rather than the standard LED. When I add it as a button it shows on the screen as both on/off states.
 Where am I going wrong?

Thanks

I found my problem, had an older version of Screen 4, just downloaded the latest and all is working perfectly :) now I just have to match up the colours to the original LEDs and all will be good.
THANKS!!! Benny for your help.

Benny
was wondering where the LEDs that are used by the latest Mach 3 version are stored as I cant seem to find them in the Bitmap folder. I want to grab one to get the colour of the ones I create identical.

Those LEDs are stored within the mach program itself. You cant access them. Sorry
