Hi Amit,

Here is C Program that monitors whether a Job is Active, Time stamps when a Job Starts, detects when a Job Ends, Formats a Job Time message, and writes it to a DROLabel.

Code: Select all

#include "KMotionDef.h"

#define TMP 10                    // which spare persist to use to transfer data
#include "KflopToKMotionCNCFunctions.c"

void ServiceJobTimer(void);

#define JOBTIMEPERSIST 162

main()
{
    for (;;)
    {
        WaitNextTimeSlice();
        ServiceJobTimer();
    }
}

// Monitor and time Jobs starting and ending
void ServiceJobTimer(void)
{
    static BOOL WasActive = FALSE;
    static double StartTime;
    double dt, Seconds;
    int Hours, Minutes;
    char s[80];

    if (JOB_ACTIVE && !WasActive)    // Started ??
    {
        StartTime = Time_sec();
        WasActive = TRUE;
    }
    if (!JOB_ACTIVE && WasActive)    // Ended ??
    {
        WasActive = FALSE;

        dt = Time_sec() - StartTime;
        Hours = (int)(dt / 3600.0);
        Minutes = (int)((dt - Hours * 3600.0) / 60.0);
        Seconds = dt - Hours * 3600.0 - Minutes * 60.0;

        if (Hours > 0)
            sprintf(s, "Last Run Time %d hours %d min %5.1f sec", Hours, Minutes, Seconds);
        else if (Minutes > 0)
            sprintf(s, "Last Run Time %d min %5.1f sec", Minutes, Seconds);
        else
            sprintf(s, "Last Run Time %5.1f sec", Seconds);

        // Put it onto the Screen using Persist
        DROLabel(1000, JOBTIMEPERSIST, s);
    }
}
Attached is a Screen Script example (also Attached)with the DROLabel that looks like this:

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the reply.

The timer for printing runtime other then caption bar is working fine as expected by the program that you sent.

Will let you know about further updates.
Thank You
