Hi
I am working on a custom gscreen gui. I cannot figure out how to open a gcode file programmatically. Actually, what I would like to do is simply store the current file upon exit, then reload it when LCNC starts. I am able to store the current file but I cannot seem to open a new one. 

I am a complete newbie to python, so any help will be appreciated. Pointers to working code examples or programming manuals would be particularly helpful.

Thanks

[DISPLAY]

OPEN_FILE = cncbytoma.ngc
Add the file name in the display section of the .ini file, file must be in the config folder, or add the full path to it.
Not sure if it works on GScreen though.

Unfortunately for me, gscreen does not appear to support OPEN_FILE ...

I learned how to do this by looking at gmoccapy.py. Thanks!

You use the HAL widgets:
self.widgets.vcp_filechooser.set_filename(file)
self.widgets.vcp_action_open.load_file(file)
