Adding function to standard screen?
« on: September 07, 2008, 04:16:33 PM »
Guys, what is the quick and dirty way to add a function to the regular screen?
I would like to add a touch plate area that would have a dro and a couple items. Similar to this.



Or perhaps this?


I have played with Screen 4 till I'm blue in the face.

I have a hard time keeping things in place when trying to change the buttons and things, even though I have locked the background.

Will the standard tool area itself work without much modification? I usually keep my tool info in the cam side and until I build an auto tool changer, I don't think I would need that.
I will read more threads on here to see if I can come up to speed quicker.
Thanks.
Lee

Lee, the biggest things to remember in screen 4 is this.

1. Design in a resoloution low enough so you can allways see the entire screen. If you can't and say there is a button at the top you need to get to. If you scroll down to a pont the button can't be seen and then scroll back up, you can not pick it anymore.  Only fix for this I know is to close the screen and re-open.

2. Locking the images is good but you also need to turn them off. Its the IMG button at the top. This will help a lot when trying to select buttons to edit.  Also, in the tools on the left, choose none if your not trying to add something like an led or button.
