This thread is intended to be a collection of code snippets for modifying the PathPilot GUI.  In an effort to try to keep this thread clean, please keep discussion about the code snippets in separate threads. 

Other than the code, please include the version it was applied to, what the code does, where it's applied, and known issues/barriers with the code, etc.

These are code snippits to build Hotkeys in PathPilot. There are usefull in all version 2.0 and up.
To use you DO have to modify PathPilot's tormach_mill_ui.py file. IF you mess up with the mod it CAN
and will crash PathPilot on loading. Then you will need to know HOW to go back and fix it. That part is
a seperate discussion (;-)

To use open the tormach_mill_ui.py file. I use Gedit to edit the file. Do a search of the file for the
words " # Escape key for stop ". That will put you in the area you need to modify. It is IN one of PathPilot's
Monitoring LOOPS. That way PathPilot sees it all the time.

WARNING: PathPilot is extremly case and indent sensitive. Look at the sections of code above and below where you are
working to make sure everything lines up.

Then Make sure you save the file (;-) Been there done that.

What the hotkey does is when you press it it switches you directly to that page without having to use a mouse. I included the text file
to make it easier to cut and paste.

I hope it is useful, (;-) TP


Insert the code snipit after that section.

# Escape key for stop
if kv == gtk.keysyms.Escape:
self.error_handler.log("ESC key - queueing stop button event")
self.enqueue_button_press_release(self.button_list)
self.tool_descript_entry.shutdown_view()
tooltipmgr.TTMgr().on_esc_key()
return True

### Insert code after this section



# F5 key for Main page
if kv == gtk.keysyms.F5:
self.error_handler.log("F5 key-Goto Main page")
ui_misc.set_current_notebook_page_by_id(UI.notebook, 'notebook_main_fixed')
self.window.show()
return True

# F6 key for work Probe page
if kv == gtk.keysyms.F6:
self.error_handler.log("F6 key-Goto File page")
ui_misc.set_current_notebook_page_by_id(UI.notebook, 'notebook_file_util_wrapping_eventbox')
self.window.show()
return True

# F7 key for Alarm Status page
if kv == gtk.keysyms.F7:
self.error_handler.log("F7 key-Goto Tool Offsets Page")
self.window.show()
return True

# F8 key for tool offsets page
if kv == gtk.keysyms.F8:
self.error_handler.log("F8 key-Goto Probe page")
ui_misc.set_current_notebook_page_by_id(UI.notebook,"probe_fixed")
self.window.show()
return True

# F9 key for Main page
if kv == gtk.keysyms.F9:
self.error_handler.log("F9 key-Goto Status page")
ui_misc.set_current_notebook_page_by_id(UI.notebook, 'alarms_fixed')
self.window.show()
return True

# F10 key for work offsets page
if kv == gtk.keysyms.F10:
self.error_handler.log("F10 key-Goto Work Offsets page")
ui_misc.set_current_notebook_page_by_id(self.notebook, 'notebook_offsets_fixed')
ui_misc.set_current_notebook_page_by_id(self.offsets_notebook, 'work_offsets_fixed')
self.window.show()
return True

# F11 key for Alarm Status page
if kv == gtk.keysyms.F11:
self.error_handler.log("F11 key-Goto Tool Offsets Page")
ui_misc.set_current_notebook_page_by_id(self.notebook, 'notebook_offsets_fixed')
ui_misc.set_current_notebook_page_by_id(self.offsets_notebook, 'tool_offsets_fixed')
self.window.show()
return True

What the hotkey does is when you press it it TOOGLES the Jog incr/cont directly without having to use a mouse. (;-) TP
# F12 key for tool offsets page
if kv == gtk.keysyms.F12:
self.error_handler.log("F12 key-Toogle Jog to INCR or Cont ")

Here is a Sub Routine that lets you PECK rigid tap if your machine can do rigid tapping. Copy the file to your Sub Routine folder. It can be used in a Gcode File or from the MDI. To Call it is  o<rtp> call [ ] [ ] [ ] where the 3 bracketsets are parameters. They read from left to right as 1 2 3. 1= thread depth, 2 = thread pitch and 3 = peck depth.
 In the example call you would declare it as o<rtp> call [-.500] [.050] [-.1]  . That would tap to -.500 using a pitch of .050 and a peck depth of -.1. It starts from the current positions of XYZ and taps down to -.1 and retracts then repeats down to -.2 and retracts , etc,etc. When the distance left to tap is less than peck value it taps to the max depth and retracts.

This is NOT a canned cycle so it is a 1 shot call. Taps one hole. It is strictly a test article to proof the function.

It can be very useful with reduced HP spindles and working with sticky,gummy or hard materials. You can also deep tap 1 thread at a time letting the coolant flush the chips out of the hole as you go.

o<rtp> sub

(Rigid Peck Tapping 2023-03-26 09:54:08 )
M3 S100
M8

#<zbot> = #1  ( -.500   Z thread depth)
#<pitch> = #2 ( .050   K thread pitch)
#<zpec> = #3  ( -.1     Q peck depth)

#<ztap> = 0   (Current Tap Depth)

o100 while[#<ztap> GE  #<zbot>]
o101 if[[#<zbot> - #<ztap>] LT #<zpec>]
#<ztap> = #<ztap>
o101 else

#<ztap> = #<zbot>
o101 endif


G33.1 Z#<ztap> K#<pitch>

#<ztap> = [#<ztap> + #<zpec>]
o100 endwhile

M5
o<rtp> endsub

Here is a section of code that creates hotkeys to change the Work Offsets G54 -G59.3. When in use use the Ctrl_NUMBER to shift the work offset.

Ctrl_4 = G54
Ctrl_5 = G55
Ctrl_6 = G56
etc
etc
Ctrl_1 = G59.1
Ctrl_2 = G59.2
Ctrl_3 = G59.3

It works with both keyboard numbers and Keypad(tenkey) numbers

(;-) TP

For anyone interested in trying Wizards in PP here is the scripts to crate a Wizards Menu in the MDI Admin function.


##### Add to end of Admincmd ***********************


class WizardMenuCmd(AdminCmd):
def __init__(self, name, doc, uibase):
super(WizardMenuCmd, self).__init__(name, doc)
self.uibase = uibase
self._help = 'Load PathPilot Wizards.'


def activate(self, arglist):
# arglist is remaining args in case we need our own parser for that.
self.uibase._run_mdi_admin_program()


##### End of Add to AdminCMD **************************************************

##### Add The file Wizard_Menu.py to the TMC scripts folder *******************************

#!/usr/bin/env python
# coding=utf-8
#
import os
from Tkinter import *
import tkFileDialog
from tkFileDialog import askopenfilename

path = "/home/operator/gcode/wizards"

filename = tkFileDialog.askopenfilename(initialdir = ""+path,
title = "Select a Wizard File",
filetypes = (("Wizard Files","*.ppw*"),("All Files","*.py")))

os.chdir("/home/operator/gcode/wizards/")
os.system(""+filename )


##### End of add to file folder **************************************************

For the Wizard Menu, you also need to add:

admincmd.WizardMenuCmd(name='WIZARD_MENU', doc=True, uibase=self)
to the end of init_admin_commands in ui_common.py (around line 3896 in V2.9.4)

And the line self.uibase._run_mdi_admin_program()'
needs to read self.uibase._run_mdi_admin_program() as well as setting the Execute flag on Wizard_Menu.py

Last, any script you intend to run must have #!/usr/bin/env python at top of file. the wizrds on github won't run unless you make this change.
Thank you vmax549 for making this happen, it is very useful.
Gerrit
