Hello everybody. I have a wireless joystick that uses the hal_input component.

the problem is that when disconnecting it the pins are lost and to use it again I have to execute the hal commands to reload the hal component.

I would like to implement a button to execute a file containing the hal command to use the joystick again.

i am using axis and linuxcnc 2.8 on raspberry pi 4.

You can probably use a custom user m code that issues a number of hal commands. Look at the m codes doc

There are ways to call this m code using a bitton

Hello . Thank you, your answer served me. I already have the functional M code that configures the joystick for me now as I link it to a button

This is a bit old but still valid. Links a MDI command to a pyvcp panel button.
