Gladevcp grayed out

12 Mar 2017 14:04 #89465 by AThayer
Ok I configured a simulated milling machine. I added a gladevcp which displays. The issue I am having is the panel is grayed out even after pressing e stop and power button. I don't know if it is something I did or something I need to do. Anyone have any ideas?

Hard to answer definitively without more info but:
There are container widgets that grey-out (made insensitive in GTK speak).
These are: state_sensitive_table and hal_sensitive_table.
HAL_sensitive_table has a HAL pin that must be set true to make them sensitive to input.
State_sensitive_table depends on the state of linuxcnc. There are selectable states to react to.
Did you home the machine? If you have a state_sensitive_table I would bet it's set to wait for all-homed.

Thanks Chris where would I find these widgets and how to I edit them?

use the GLADE editor to edit the .glade file.
on the right hand side of the editor, it should list the widget hierarchy.

Change the sensitive table to a regular table.
But really if the sensitive table is a state sensitive table it probably was put there in the first place for a good reason.
