Macro Function to VCP Buttons

Post by Gary Campbell » Wed Feb 07, 2018 2:45 pm

Where can the documents be found that explain how to add/modify macro function to the existing Aux buttons?

Thanks in advance

That’s pretty cool! I think there’s a typo in the paragraph that I will paste in below. It talks about Aux5 but then mentions Aux7.

“In our example, we want the AUX5 to move the X and Y axis to 0,0 position when pressed.
So to get Aux5 to ‘read’ and execute the commands in the mfunc72.mac program we created in step 2 To do this, set parameter #192 = 7211 Press F10 to save.
7211 tells control to look for M72 (mfunc72.mac) and run that job when Auxiliary key 7 is pressed. Where 72 is the custom M-code # to be used and 11 tells the control you want the Aux key to use a custom Mcode.“

Yes, Scot that is a typo. Had me spinning for a minute or two. All in all it works very well, good instruction, easy to understand language. Thanks for making it easy!
