Change #var value

Postby Alberto FUL » Sat Nov 10, 2018 6:15 am

I run automatic tool grinding machine with UCCNC.
The programs runs in neverending loop. All is parametric (positioning, movements, I/Os).
Is there any possibilty to change vars without stopping the program? Now i placed some M1 in order to do that but I'd like to do "on the fly".
Thanks

Yes, of course. You can use e.g. #1=3*[#2+1]. For details see chapter 4.2 Parametric programming in manual.

You are right Vmax549.
I'm more g-code programmer than C#. I tried to look at sample code included in UCCNC but I still do not understand it very well. Which editor should I use ? Now I'm using a modified 2017 screenset where I have check boxes to activate various options in my g-code. I'm thinking that default UC screenset with my personal plugin would be (maybe) better .
Can anybody help me doing this?
Thanks

Wanted to make it to read variables also but pressed for time, on my way out to brunch. Let me know if this is what you needed and will finish up later tonight.

Create a button or HotKey and give it a # 8989.
Enable plugin in Configure Plugins

No need to come up with anything if you have something that will help the op. Post it.

Thank You Dan,

That's what I need.
Am I too unpolite to ask for source code of this plugin?
I'd like to play around and add some "cosmetics".
THANKS ;)

Sorry Alberto, I had only numbers and decimal allowed, I added minus(negative), I also added Get variables to check there value, plugin is still being developed.
