user tab class was created by fixer
Hello,

I am trying to integrate LinuxCNC features a little bit deeper in gmoccapy - I want to have softkeys in gmoccapy for calling different functions in Features.
Is it possible to access Features functions in parent (gmoccapy) class?

Thanks!

As features is a class, importing that one in gmoccapy should give you full access to the functions.

What are you trying to do?
I do ask, because it might be easier to include a handler file loading the embedded tab to archive the functions.
The advantage would be not to need to touch the gmoccapy code. As each update would need your patches again.

I would like to have buttons from features (add, remove, undo, redo, move up, down,...) displayed as horizontal softkeys in gmoccapy. I have a button on GUI that dynamically shows and hides rightbox user tab, where i have features embedded. When I show features, I would also like for the softkeys to change appearance. I am using my machines with touchscreen, without mouse and keyboard, and I have a rather small screen, 15 zoll, 1024 pixels.

Note that I am a beginer in python and in object oriented programming, I just want to access integrated Features's .self

I don't mind applying changes after updates, as I have already done a lot of changes in your code, and also in other widgets (tooleditor was unusable on touchscreens, I made a save as dialog with your (modified) IconView, Features also needed some modification to suit my needs,...)

@fixer,

I do like your idea a lot!
What about integrating features as ntb_user_tabs, so pushing the button user_tabs will bring features in front. The tab has integrated a button_box and a gremlin as preview, so you can handle all calls from that buttons.

The other idea is to add a user_buttonbox in the bottom_button_list, so users may place there buttons in there and handle special cases with there own py handler.

Nevertheless, could you send me your code, I am interested in the changes you made, may be there are stuff in there I could use in standard code.

This sounds great, and I have a few more ideas there...
