Hi all!

I am trying to use gmoccapy in a vertical fashion.

I have an ASUS VT168N touchscreen 1368 x 768 that I rotated by 90 degrees, which gives a width of 768px.

Since the width of the gmoccapy GUI is minimum 979px, I can not get all of the GUI inside the screen.

Any suggestions?

I somehow solved this problem with editing the file gmoccapy.glide. I just resized the main window "window1" to 768 width and it now resized. I have to resize some of the buttons too, but it is usable.

So, one half (upper) of the screen is used by the gmoccapy GUI.

For the bottom half (684 x 768) I want the nativeCAM displayed.
I tried with the EMBED_TAB_COMMAND
But I have difficulty finding a container/box that is placed horizontally on the bottom of the GUI.

Can I just add(if I manage) one horizontal box in gmoccapy.glide file or is it not possible this way?

Thanks!

Hallo longbow,

you can use the glade editor to move or resize any widget you like. As long as you do not remove or rename any widget, gmoccapy should start. but you should look also in the code of gmoccapy.py (in usr/bin/ without the py ending, just open with gedit) in def on_window1_show to check for your default values, or you just edit the values in your preference file.

To add a new user area to introduce your custom panel on the bottom, you need to take a look at gmoccapy code in the area def set_up_user_tabs to add your new tab location.

But the easiest way is just to use the glade editor and move i.e. box_custom_4 to the location you want and use that one to add your tab. If you have already a preference file, just edit in that one the dimensions and position to start the GUI and all should be done. So there is also a way to solve your wishes without touching code.

This is gmoccapy, the GUI without limits ;-)
OK, at the moment the 5 axis limit, but 9 axis coming soon ;-)

Hello!

I am still having problems trying to place nativeCAM on the bottom of the screen.

I tried to move the box_custom4 to a different location but it will not go on the bottom of the GUI. The glide editor is having problems to process such a big .glide file! I get freezes and lag so I can do almost nothing.

I took a look into def set_up_user_tabs. Are the locations of the tabs stored in the "tab_locations"?

I 'm using gmoccapy 2.3.3.2

You are using the stock glade, aren't you?

That one has a bug, I updates to 3.8.6 and the problems are gone.

Sorry, but I have no time at the moment to change the glade file according to your needs.

This is how it looks now on my 17" touchscreen, almost like a real machine now :)
