Hello All,

Wanting to change my DROs to 3 dicimal places instead of 4.

DRO_FORMAT_MM and DRO_FORMAT_IN don't seen to have an effect in QtDragon_HD. According to the INI files docs they should...

linuxcnc.org/docs/2.8/html/config/ini-config.html

How can I change these?

Thanks,
Kent

That INI setting sets the DRO inbed into the graphics display/
This is how AXIS and Qtaxis display the DRO/

Qtdragon uses labels to display the DRO.
You would need to modify the .ui file.

Thanks Chris,

I see the help file but not clear. i don't see an "imperial" associated with the DRO in the QtDragon_HD.ui.

I see "setimperialtexttemplate" in dro_widget.py but find this function nowhere else...
Can you give me an example? Or another clue?

Thanks,
Kent

Well I did it like this in initialize in QtDragon_hd_handler.....

self.w["dro_axis_x"].setimperialtexttemplate('%9.3f') ##DKS
self.w["dro_axis_x"].update_units() ##DKS
self.w["dro_axis_y"].setimperialtexttemplate('%9.3f') ##DKS
self.w["dro_axis_y"].update_units() ##DKS
self.w["dro_axis_z"].setimperialtexttemplate('%9.3f') ##DKS
self.w["dro_axis_z"].update_units() ##DKS

But this didn't make changes to the tool table and offsets significant digits :( Want one place to change all significant digits....

Yes all a bit klunky still.

self.w.NAME OF TOOL EDITOR.imperial_text_template = '%9.4f'

self.w.NAME OF ORIGIN EDITOR.imperial_text_template = '%9.4f'

Well the origin editor works great but still see 4 decimals in tool editor. Checked tool offsetview.py and I think everything is OK.

Am I wearing out my welcome yet?, I can be less verbose if requested:) I am not sure if my testing/problems are appreciated or I am becoming a thorn....

Thank You Chris!

Sorry for the delay.
You can use this code to modify the tool offset template:
self.w.tooloffsetview.tablemodel.imperial_text_template = '%9.1f'

I'll be making this a more consistent function call in the future.

I pushed some work, if you update and get an error from the above suggested change try this:
        self.w.offset_table.setProperty('imperial_template', '%9.1f')
        self.w.tooloffsetview.setProperty('imperial_template', '%9.1f')
