Do you have a TRAJ section in your ini file? If so, what is the value. For this to work you have to have a TRAJ section with MAX_VELOCITY. It is units per second. How do you have your label format set to see the returned value in the UI?

Okay let me double-check on that because I was using a SIM, and it could be older.

I'll try it on my machine which was done very recently. I know my status label divides by 60 to get the feed. I'll double check once I get home.

Thanks

Out of absolute curiosity i am attaching my currently fiddle project.

One is my Linuxcnc config (vcp2_config). You will need to copy the unzipped contents into your linuxcnc/configs folder.

The other is my vcp folder which needs to be placed into your home directory.

Make sure you use my folder structure so all the files are picked up. You may have some issues with my icons as I don't have all in a resource file and pull from local directories. But you should be able to run it just fine.

Remember, all who download this and try it out that it is a fiddle project where i do all my dev before i place it into an actual UI. So it,s ugly. Lol.

If this works on your system then it is something with your UI or config.

Here is the label rule for my max_velocity label. It scales to IPM or MMPM. So whatever your settings are. Max_Velocity is UNITS PER SECOND so it is inch or metric agnostic.

If this is not set correctly then you will not see a valid change in the value of the label.

I'll double check, I was using the plot and label and they both seemed to match. I know it works correctly as I was using while cutting

[TRAJ]
COORDINATES = XYZA
LINEAR_UNITS = inch
ANGULAR_UNITS = degree
MAX_LINEAR_VELOCITY = 1.50
MAX_ANGULAR_VELOCITY = 20.

this is what i have under traj

Well, now I feel like a horses patoot.

I had a space in front of the action and the only one that didn't have one was zero.

It is working good.

I couldn't try your vcp2 because that's the same name as mine and I didn't want to try and rename them LOL.

My status label is actually reporting rapid override so I'll have to change it.

100 =150 on it

# ToDo : This may not be needed, as it could be recieved from linuxcnc.stat
    def maxVelocity(self):
        # max velocity settings: more then one place to check
        # This is the maximum velocity of the machine
        temp = self.ini.find('TRAJ', 'MAX_LINEAR_VELOCITY') or self.ini.find('TRAJ', 'MAX_VELOCITY')
        if  temp == None:
            log.warning("No entry [TRAJ] MAX_VELOCITY found in INI, using 15ipm")
            temp = 15.0
        return float(temp) * 60

Looks like that is okay too. I duplicated the instructions and created a new set in the same vcp and it works following exactly what I stated. Hmmm...

You may try using my ini file. and hal file. Something is not connected. My code is fully portable for all qtpyvcp versions. And 2.7~2.9 LCNC. Since you already have code base for the number keys (i assume worked) in your mainwindow.py file I assume somehow Qt versions are incorrect and your not getting the correct qml. I am running 5.9.5.

You may try setting your debug level to

[EMC]
MACHINE = vcp2
DEBUG = 0x7FFFFFFF
VERSION = 1.1

The start linuxcnc via the command line to do a trace on any errors being presented via LCNC through the terminal window. That debug level outputs everything so it can be a pain to find.

Once started get your machine )sim) ready. The press each button 1 at atime. Check the terminal for errors. Last entry should be the latest call or error.

Also, check the terminal you did editvcp yourvcpname

If there is a Qt error it will show there.
