Just to give you a preview of what Dewey has been up to here is a screen shot of the new pyngcgui with touchy.

Seems like Add File is broken on Firefox, Opera, IE, Chrome...

I can't wait to plug it into my custom gui and see if Chris adds it to gscreen. If you want to test it I can fwd it to you or ask Dewey to add you to the list.

this is not an operator screen.
It's for making a Gcode program by chaining together a bunch of smaller building block programs.

you enter the information by filling in data on a screen, like filling in a questionnaire.

I briefly tried this out.
I have not ever use ngcgui before.

I need a help button. first thing I thought was what is XYZ for? what's a gosper ?

on the programming side:
I think the popup keyboard should also be a gladevcp widget - very handy.
But It's going to break fullscreen GUIs -ask me how I know :) I have this same problem with Gscreen.
When the dialog pops it will make the top and bottom bars show.
There are some specific things that can be done to fix that but there may be some drawbacks too - I'm researching.

I would suggest that in your sample TOUCHY config you add a gladeVCP panel that has a HAL_gremlin.
then you can see what you made before you run it.

Very nice work !

The new thing here is not the GUI (it's just normal "Touchy") but the integration of ngcgui which is somewhere between a macro language and a conversational programming interface.
