Hi folks, I hope someone out there can help me.....

I want to add a variable to tormach_mill_ui.py, I want to initialise it at a value of 100 and i would line to increment of decrement this value under keyboard functions further down the code as suggested in the discussion

forum.linuxcnc.org/pathpilot/48745-gui-m...ode-snippets-toolbox

I would like to use this variable as shown

#initialise or define somwhere......
new_variable = 100

#under keyboard functions

            if kv == gtk.keysyms.a:

[b]                new_variable=new_variable + 2
               if new_variable  > 100 then new_variable = 100

               self.sliders['jog_speed'].adjustment.set_value(new_variable)
                return True



This way I can use a keystroke to both increment and decrement jog_speed.
I know I can write to jog_speed with a static value but that would require a keystroke for each value!

I also know my syntax is bad for the bold letters but that's where your help also comes in

If i add the following i can send a static value, but that's not what I want..



[code]#under keyboard functions

            if kv == gtk.keysyms.a:
                 new_variable = 100
               self.sliders['jog_speed'].adjustment.set_value(new_variable)
                return True


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

cheers,

Ian
