initialize_widgets() is where to put initialization code.

status,command and error can be accessed by initializing an instance of them in the __INIT__() function with:

self.command = linuxcnc.command()
self.status = linuxcnc.stat()
self.error = linuxcnc.error_channel()

It's probably available through some other code but that is surely the easiest to work with.
In some cases using GSTAT is a better way to go.
GSTAT monitors some key status and will tell you when they change.

Is Gscreen being phased out ? If it is ,what avenues are there to upgrade or convert an existing Gscreen user interface.

There is no immediate plan to phase out Gscreen.
I just gets harder to get the editor to work on newer distributions to modify it.
I heard rumors of python2 support coming to an end in the future but i bet that will still take awhile.

I hope in time to update Gscreen and Gladevcp for gtk3 and python3 but that would be in long time from now (if ever)

QTvcp is the the next in-tree project for machine control in linuxcnc.

I should mention there is a separate PyQtVCP project too.

Thanks Chris,
Can I open my current Gscreen glade file using the newer QTvcp software and make changes to it or would I need to start all over again?

Unfortunately no. QTvcp is not compatible.
