Buttons that write numbers in DROs.
« on: May 27, 2008, 03:22:02 AM »
Is there any way to create some buttons that will insert numbers to DROs?
Like a numeric pad i mean.

You can enable the onscreen number pad, when you click on a DRO the keypad will pop up and ytou can enter the numbers.  Is that what you are wanting? Its on the Operator Menu and choose  Auto Calculator.

One way to do this is to have a DRO select button that indicates which dro is active.

Then you can read which is the active dro, read the dro's contents, update it, and write it back.

Note.  NOT all dro's are writeable.
