Hi Vmax549,

did you get round to finishing the code?...

i was thinking about using something like
variable =self.sliders.adjustment.get_value()
but im not sure of the syntax or what the feed_rate slider is called....

If you have a solution that can be activated from a key press I'm all ears!

I tried generichid and it works but it hogs the usb at 50ms poll rate and I don't like the mpg jog...so i used an arduino as a hid keyboard and placed jog speeds, step sizes, cont or inc in tormach_mill_ui.py and used the mpg encoder frequency to change speeds..or step forwards/backwards..works really well and doesn't hog the usb...adding feedrate, spindle and maxvel via keys would be the finishing touch....

Can you or anyone else help me out?...I had help a while ago from yourself and snowgoer540 but sadly i lost all of my email contacts...

Thank you in advance...

this works for me..i will send keystrokes from an arduino hid keyboard using three panel encoders to send increment or decement...

#this works well as long as thenkeyboard is used, if the sliders are used then the variables are not updated,
#the still slider works but the next time the keybaord is used a large step may result as the variable is
#still set to the last value used by the keyboard








Hope this helps someone...
