Read and write to teh tool table

Postby Vmax549 » Tue Jul 30, 2019 1:58 am

I am working on the M6 macro code for a new double arm look ahead tool changer. Are we going to be able to read and write to the tool table anytime soon ?

You should be able to read it now, the plugininterface.dll was added to the macros and macroloops in 1.2112.

Yes I already tested that part BUT what about writing to teh tool table. IF you cannot write to teh table there is nothing to read.

Yes I do know that you can manually write to teh table but that will not work when dealing with an ATC and variable slot assigments.

At teh very least we need to be able to update teh tooltable from teh PRO file on teh fly. That will at least allow us to update teh table to current values.

As is every thing you try to update via scripting gets overwritten with different values when you save. Not good.

Yes, writting will be the next step, can't make everything from a single step. :(
