I am not sure if it does of not . I do not find a [FILTER] entry in teh INI file. I hav also added it and did not see a difference.

I have teh Wizards loading into PathPilot now. I just have to figure out how to post teh file to PathPilot and have it load. I have been searching though the Conversational code to see HOW they did it. Nothing so far.

Wizards will be a sweet deal because they are self contained. Drop teh wizard file into the folder and restart PathPilot and you are good to go. So far (;-)

Does PP allow you to load python programs directly? can you change the ending from .ngc to .py and it loads the python program?

I did try that loading the PY file from the load file function but all it did was load the file text in as a gcode file . Doesn't machine very well (;-)

Try same using ADMIN pythonfile
they made a major change to PP in 2.7 what allows the ADMIN command to run generic commands if I'm reading the source correctly

if you're on the latest version this won't work

in the new source its really easy to add new ADMIN commands
ui-common.py and admincmd.py is all you need
ui-common.py contains the defining callback and its' function is defined in admincmd.py

and apparently my underscore stopped working on my keyboard. that - is supposed to be an underscore

That was mentioned before and I did look at it. But it would be very complicated for a user to setup. I am trying to keep it so a user can drop a file into a folder and then run it without modifing PP . IF I can get [FILTER] working it would be great as I could just drop teh Wizard files into the gcode folder along with any image file needed and then call it directly from the FIleLoad process just like a gcode.

I think that Tormach removed teh [FILTER] section from PP so that might not ever work. Shame though because it would be simple to use that way. I do have the Wizard Template working OK and have created a couple of simple Wizards to test with.
