Loading screan script files from C programs

Post by JoeKumanchik » Tue May 29, 2018 4:07 pm

Hello;

I have created a user button in the KmotionCNC screen to open a custom screen used to enter several values that are passed to and used in a C program. I added two buttons to the new screen, Return and Accept. Pressing the return button returns to the KmotionCNC screen without executing the C program. Pressing the accept button executes the C program. The C program immediately displays a Wait dialog box so I can then press the return button returning to the main KmotionCNC screen where I can acknoledge the Wait dialog box and continue on with the C program. Ideally, I would like to press the accept button and have the C program reload the main KmotionCNC screen. I have exhausted my limited ideas on how to accomplish this task and hoping someone else can help.

Hi JoeKumanchik,

You should be able to configure an MCode to load the Screen. Then have the C Program Invoke the MCode by sending the PC_COMM_MCODE command to KMotionCNC.

DoPCInt(PC_COMM_MCODE,100); // Invoke M100 Action
