Did you copy/create each one and put it in the directory you specified in your ini file?

Yep - it shows the ngc file in the gcode window but wont run it. It just stops with the near line 26 error :(

The only way that I know of to get that error is the file is not where you said it is. Look on line 2 to see the path that ngcgui is looking for the file in. I can duplicate that exact error just by renaming one of my subroutines.

Thanks John - found it, it was the TTT_Preamble path.

Need to mess with my custompanel - speed display is in the way and obscures parameters 11 & 12 on a 1024x768 screen

Is there any way to adjust the packing of the UI elements, i.e. to make them stack vertically or put scroll bars on the fram? I am using an 800x600 touchscreen and in Axis a lot of the fields get cut off. I don't mind tweaking code but I am not at all familiar with Tcl.

Alternately, is there a way to run in standalone mode with multiple tabs? While I like having it inside Axis it's not a dealbreaker to run standalone. But I do really like being able to define multiple operations into a single part file.

I think there is a way to run it stand alone. You might check the README file and if you can't find what you want in there Dewey has his contact info in the README file.

Same thing was happening to me with 1024x768 screen. The solution I found was to remove the font information in the ini file.

Make the line

NGCGUI_FONT = HELVETICA -10 normal

read

NGCGUI_FONT =

It now resizes properly to show as tabs in axis without anything being cut off.

Running stand alone doesn't work here for some reason, oddly the gui opens up minimised with no content whatsoever when expanded?

Are you wanting to add ngcgui or just get tabs for pyvcp?

What version of EMC are you running?
