Have you seen the "Touchy" MDI interface?
I quite like how it knows the parameters for each G-code, so you don't have to. It also saves a lot of screen space.

The MDI tab in Touchy while less cluttered than my tab but is about the same size. Interesting now that you point out how Touchy knows the parameters for each G code you have spurred my grey matter into trying to make a better MDI screen.

One thing I never did fully understand was the G/R0 button on the MDI tab of Touchy...

I've used Touchy for several years on my BP Mill and don't really care for many of the "features' built into it. It doesn't work the way I do and that is the beauty of QtPyVCP you can easily make the GUI work the way you want it to work and look the way you want it to work.

One G button gives you XYZA
The other gives you @ ^ prompts on the left, for polar coordinates.

It's easy to get obsessed with it and spent more time customizing it than making parts :silly:

Andy thanks for the inspiration on the MDI window, it's coming along nicely now. I've also had the idea to have a G code help button to pop up the description of the current G code in the MDI box for forgetful folks like myself.





@tommylight I cleaned up the dark theme a bit... sorta growing on me.

As I’ve spent over 30 years of my life looking at TV/monitors, it is about time to try to molest them a bit less if possible.
Thank you.
Wanted to put a joke here, but i have a feeling jokes do not go well over the internet.

I added G code descriptions for all G codes including ones like G7 with no additional words.

I did some more refinements to the MDI tab in Mill Touch thanks to Andy's prodding it's working out rather well I think. Hazzy has it on his mill and made a short video of the MDI tab.

Hi, firstly great work on the ui. I love it and it shows the versatility of QyPyVCP and qss style sheets!!

I have the ui running in sim and can change style sheets without problem. However when I try to edit the vcp I get the following error:

UndefinedError: 'None' has no attribute 'stylesheet'

I have copied a qss sheet into the ui directory and renamed is style.qss as per config.yml.

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Thanks. Scott

Your doing nothing wrong, I broke it. I should have it fixed in a bit. In the config.yml file I commented out the style line, it should be like this:
application:
  kwargs:
    # Specify the application wide stylesheet.
    stylesheet: {{ file.dir }}/ui/style.qss
