Big thanks to BigJohnT.
One more question:
How to make "Log" buttons on XHC-HB04_B controller? it's for the big 5 axis cnc machine MAKA.
I still can't walk between the workpiece and the keyboard. It is 5m.
It is possible?

It should be. Assuming that you can get a button-press on the pendant to appear in HAL.

.py file from Position Logger.

self.logPB.clicked.connect(self.log)
...
...
def log(self):
axes = []
for checkbox in self.axesGB.findChildren(QCheckBox): # get axes list
if checkbox.isChecked():
axes.insert(0, str(checkbox.objectName()[-1]))
...
...
return

from .ui file
<item row="0" column="4">
<widget class="QPushButton" name="logPB">
<property name="text">
<string>Log</string>
</property>
</widget>
</item>


I need to activate this "log" button using some WHB04B button.

I think that the neatest way would be to modify emclog.py so that it creates a HAL pin with the same action as the logPB gui control.

You would then net that HAL pin to an XHC HAL pin.

All the info you need is here:http://linuxcnc.org/docs/2.8/html/hal/halmodule.html
Though admittedly buried in lots of info that you don't need.
Section 10 looks to be the most relevant to what you want to do.

Done. You will need to connect to a digital input pin your pendant pen and select the pin you used in the Position Logger... hmm I need to make it save the pin.. tomorrow I'll add the save pin.

This is the latest Position Logger
github.com/jethornton/emclog

Opps, forgot to build the deb...

Done
