Does anyone know if it is possible to build Wizards in LinuxCNC ??? They would probably run in python.

AH the simple gcode generators is what I am looking for. It has all teh basics for a simple wizard/widget. Looking at the Python file IF you take out teh drawing code it gets fairly simple to duplicate code wise.

Just a couple of questions if you have time . Where do you store the Python file and how do you call it into play ?

I am working with PathPilot and this is just an experiment to see IF one can duplicate a Wizard function as we know it work.

Looks promising depending on how you call it into play (;-) TP

I noticed the teh simple Gcode Gens are written for AXIS I wonder if they will work for PathPilot ?? I have one running from teh desktop but have not figured out how to start it from PathPilot yet.

IF it can be made to run in a simple call from teh MDI in PathPilot that would be the Cats meow . But I fear like all things PathPilot it will be 10xs harder than it needs to be (;-) Or perhaps we will get lucky and it be simple to use.

PP is going to look for python mainly in ~/tmc/python

simplest way to add to python is in admincmd.py
add a new command there then in the MDI ADMIN WIZNAME
if you got fancy you could add a new tab for wizards and pick the one you want

I ws hoping it would as simple as drop a PY file in a folder then call it from PathPilot MDI . Like everyone else does it (;-) I will try your method though. Something is always better than nothing.

I can see where ADMIN will be handy for a few things but not Wizards.

The wizard would be just as easy to create as others are but teh calling has to be simple as well.

It works in linuxcnc by outputting the gcode to 'standard output' and the screen reads that output - called filtering in linuxcnc.
It depends if PP kept that same behavior.

Some may allow saving the output to a file - so then it would be a two step process.

The 2 save options on this Wiz is post to Axis and save to clipboard. Things like save can be worked out through Python BUT I first have to figure out how to load teh WIZ in pathpilot.

I am currently stripping down a Wiz to use as a base model. Getting it down to bare essentials as an example code.

Does PP support filter programs?
