Good day

Please see the attached diagram


logicaly the signal for spindle.0.speed-out is coming from the user interface

let us say we are using gmoccapy

Where such connection between spindle.0.speed-out and the user interface of gmoccapy is made (which file)

best regards 

Philip

Thanks cmorley

If I understood the article in the link you posted correctly, the link between spindle.0.speed-out and the graphical user interface is internal and not in a file like machine.hal.

So to map each signal generated by the stepconf wizard to a button (on gmoccapy user interface), I used the hal meter and just keep trying to see which button change the signal of my interrest.

I was hoping that there is some kind of a spread sheet that link the signal to the GUI button, but thats OK, I will map it manualy, it will stick better the hardway.

Best regards

Have you tried halshow and look for your signal it should then show you all the instances that the signal is connect to.

yes

I am playing with halcmd. 

it will take me a while to connect the dots, very steep learning curve for non-sofware background person, but I will be there.

thanks

i would suggest that when asking questions to explain what you are trying to do rather then just asking a specific question of process.

Sounds like you wish to change what the buttons do in Gmoccapy?
These are set is gmoccapy's python files mostly gmoccapy.py and gmoccapy.glade.

spindle.0.speed-out is controlled by an NML message (internal to LInuxCNC).

Typically it would be the result of an M3 / M4 command from the interpreter getting to the front of the motion queue.

However GUI's can also generate spindle command messages, as can user-written code using the Python interface
linuxcnc.org/docs/2.8/html/config/python-interface.html
or pins in HAL using halui.

This is exactly what I was looking for

Now a lot of things that were confusing me make sense.

I extended the gmoccapy and added a little check box, that is why I was looking for the a postgui file for the native gmoccapy user interface buttons, which now I understand that the signals from those buttons to the other hal components is internal.
