I also tried loading the pyvcp panel in the hal file but it does not embed into Axis. Unless there is a loadusr command string that will embed it into Axis???

Would you mind showing me where in the xml code I would be defining its size?


Unfortunately it does not work like that at present

If you call pyvcp directly you can use the -g [<WxH><+X+Y>] switch, but then you end up with a floating window

Axis does this to embed the pyvcp widgets
   if vcp:
        import vcpparse
        comp.setprefix("pyvcp")
        f = Tkinter.Frame(root_window)
        f.grid(row=0, column=4, rowspan=6, sticky="nw", padx=4, pady=4)
        vcpparse.filename = vcp
        vcpparse.create_vcp(f, comp)
    comp.ready()

vcpparse is a seperate file which parses the xml and creates the widgets.

I am going to have to look through pyvcp_widgets again, I may have to make some more changes, if it can be done at xml level

The only thing that might embed is something like
EMBED_TAB_COMMAND = halrun loadusr -Wn tab pyvcp -c tab tab.xml {XID}
in the ini file

I will try that in a bit

So if I am understanding correctly what I am trying to do is not possible at this time?

No that doesnt work, it is spookly similar to how you embed a gladeVCP widget through

Will keep on trying.

It should be, but appears not to work with embedded widgets, because of the way they are created.
I am playing with tkInter.pack() at present, because that is what is used underneath.

EDIT
Well in fact the widget is based upon bWidget.notebook I have just found

I will have a dig into it to see what can be changed in pyvcp_widgets that might display the contents of a nested widget properly

Hi

Afraid I am giving up on this, the only solution I have found that works, is to create the pyvcp panel in a postgui.hal file with something like
loadusr -Wn tab pyvcp -c tab -g 200x300 tab.xml



If you must have nested tabs AND have it embedded, will probably be simpler to create the panel with glade.

JT did a tutorial for glade
www.gnipsel.com/glade/index.html

The main wiki is here
www.linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gui/gladevcp.html

The examples are in configs/gladevcp in a RIP build or probably /usr/share/linuxcnc/configs/ on an installed system ( I haven't used one for a while)

Then there is the forum section
www.linuxcnc.org/index.php/english/forum/48-gladevcp

good luck
