How do you set the spindle speed manually in qtdragon?

I think I'm missing something obvious.

Thank you.

There is no specific control for that, but you can use MDI mode.
M3 Sxxx where xxx is speed in RPM

If you prefer using the spindle buttons to adjust the manual spindle speed too,
try adding these lines to your stylesheet:



#action_spindle_fwd{
qproperty-spindle_up_action: true;
}
#action_spindle_rev{
qproperty-spindle_down_action: true;
}

Wil try the spindle style sheet as well but have a different question.

The spindle rpm always shows zero.

I setup the config using the tool.

Using the 7i96s voltage divider for managing spindles. Set it to be pmw

Mapped 5v to 20000.

When I type M3 s1000 the UI does not change, stays at zero. So I assume I need a line in the custom.hal file to map something.

Note that setting those properties only works in Manual mode.
I also find it more useful if you set the button's auto repeat property in designer.

In your postgui hal file, you need to connect the spindle speed signal to the spindle rpm gauge. Something like:
net spindle-rpm qtdragon.gauge_spindle_value <= spindle.0.speed-out-abs

Your net names may be slightly different, but that's the idea.
