Tool Cone Color was created by Vmax549
Does anyone know how to change the color of the Tool Cone in the toolpath display. I have looked but cannot find anything that relates to it.

Thanks (;-) TP

I think these are RGB values:
github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/blob/master...s274/glcanon.py#L359

Though I am not 100% sure which is the tool cone.

Oh. PathPilot. That may well not use glcanon at all.

I didn’t check enough to know where they are set but the object is available in ui_common.py

Found it looking at debug info so it’s there but you may have to code it yourself

I looked throught teh PYs and did not see anything I thought was it . I did a search on Color in all teh files . Trouble is I do not know what the tool conne is actually called in teh scripts so it is hard to search for.

Its not in-use in PP, that's what I mean by you'll have to code it yourself
the color setting is available thru the self.xx.xx class in the ui_common.py.

something like this
self.gremlin.colors.cone(1.0,1.0.1.0) // RGB from 0-1 for each value
this is a guess looking at the self object.
I don't know if it will actually work

Hi all , I finally found the GLcannon.py. There are 3 copies in pathpilot. So which to use ??. I did find a copy that allowed me to change the color of an element on teh screen BUT when I changed the CONE color it made no difference so I am now assuming that the Cone color is being overrode somewhere else.

ALSO I have no idea what color system PathPilot uses. It is not CMY and it is not RGB in teh normal sense of 255,255,0.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Interesting that there are 4 copies of PP stored on teh machine andin each copy there are 2 sections that teh Cone color could be set. BUT none of them actuall change teh color. So it must be overridden somewhere else in PP.

Do you have a python debugger?
If so set watch on the actual point that controls the color or if possible set a conditional break point on it. Tgat way when it changes your code will stop where it’s running

Pycharm and Wing are already setup in pp. just need to enable whichever you use
