QtPYVCP - MACRO VAR Page - Persistent macro vars

03 Jan 2020 01:19 #153845 by Donb9261
Hello all,

I have been plugging away, mostly pulling my hair out trying to come up with a meaningful solution to Volatile macro vars. As you know most macro vars outside those required by LCNC will only last as long as the control is up. If you shut down or lose power the file can become corrupted or worse simply dumped. With that in mind I set on a journey to find a way that makes sense and is easily added to your current VCP or maybe if everyone likes the idea, a widget can be made.

Currently, the code is good and fully functional. But it loses a lot due to a forced repeating of code. Not hard coding the UI has advantages and disadvantages.Regardless, if it works, don't fix it. I will try to DRY it up more as I go through coding iterations over time.

Here is what it looks like:



Now, I am working on a VCP I will release soon so the UI looks different than all others. But, it is the same. Kinda like woman. Lol. Ladies, I apologize in advance for my toxic masculine sense of humor.

So, for the meat and potatoes of how to use it. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THE IMPORTS. All are a must have.

I have sufficiently commented all the code but if you have questions, feel free to hit me back. I like attention... My therapist says I need deep electro treatments to cure me. :)

First we need to build the UI in designer. Pretty simple. Need status labels for each lineEdit. I used VCPLineEedits but a standard line edit works fine. You can choose where in the group you want your macro params to start. Given I use Renishaw macros 500~599 are standard for their macros. They also use some 100's but I typically move them from the 100's to 500's on Fanuc controls so they are persistent. 100-199 on Fanuc are volatile. On Siemens you use GUD params. I will see how that can be done to help with those more comfortable with Siemens. Heidenhain is a whole other story.

According to LCNC docs, 31~5000 are volatile user variables. For me I typically use sections for specific purposes. 500~529 (Tool Setter Params) 530~559 (Touch Probe Params) 560~599 (Custom Macro for Coordinate System Rotations and Kinematic Euler Angles). 1000~1999 (Display and Program Settings) and so on. This is so custom and should be done to fit your needs.

In the pic you see the first page with each label showing the number of the macro variable and the acronym for what it means. That is also your choice. 500 - TPXR == Tool Probe X Basic Reference Position 503 - TPXC == Tool Probe X Calibration Position and so on,...

Each LineEdit has routine in main_window.py for getting the value and also monitoring the enterPressed event. Should work with both phy keyboards and virt keyboads.

Typing in the value and pressing enter will do a few things in the main_window.py file.

1. Store the value of the text
2. Set the parameter number to be changed
3. issue_mdi (#xxx = xxx)
4. call getMacroVars.

getMacroVars is complex but simple at the same time. Read the parameter file and parse to a python dictionary. Store the values and set each lineEdit to the value from the file. As long as you are using VCP 3.0 the file will auto save and reload. Currently, LCNC loads at start up uses memory to hold all values and rewrites the memory to disk at shutdown as long as it exits nicely.

This method ensures that at least once the file will be saved. I will be writing a routine that will rewrite the file at anytime the machine is idle for longer than 120 seconds. That way you always have a solid copy to rely on. Later, I will also implement shelve. Which will further ensure a persistent variable storage through power cycles or power loss. Shelve is a database for storage of small data sets. Works great but parsing back to the .var file is a pain.

setMacroVars will read in the parameter file, parse it and then write the file back out. Takes roughly 100ms. Easy peasy. It writes all values stored in the file. Not just macro vars. All offsets as well to keep the file linear and in the proper order. LCNC will crash if not in order. Anytime you change a Macro Var this is called and hard writes the var file. ;)

That is about it really. The code looks scary but it is actually not.

Please make any suggestions or comments (be nice) as I think this will be a big help for more complex users. Especially for probers.

main_window.py - Cutting and pasting requires PyCharm or IntelliJ. Python can gotcha.

+ or - Input button for offsets.

I tried with an mdibutton and offset label but it doesn't work

doable but a challenge based on how you play it. If you you increment by the smallest value .0001" or .001mm only it may make it a pain. I suppose a third btn for inc size would allow you to set .0001, .001, .01, ,1, 1. inc.

Let me wrap it in code and see. May be a four button setup to add a save button. This could then call a version of my macro save function to write it and reload once save is pressed.

One thing worth pointing out, that doesn't particularly jump out in the docs, is that any numbered parameter that is added to the .var file will become persistent.

I wonder how hard it would be to make named parameters work the same way?

It would be desirable to load and save parameters from and to the Linuxcnc.var File

then set actual parameters for use in grinding macro may be in a Qtvcp tab in Touchy

may be parallel use of a extra Qtvcp CamView window

jog with relevant joint to position behind workpiece, press yellow button "teach in behind workpiece"
jog with relevant joint to position ahead of workpiece, press yellow button "teach in ahead of workpiece"
jog with relevant joint to position over top of workpiece, press yellow button "teach in secure top of workpiece"
input grinding allowance some way, press yellow button "teach in grinding allowance of workpiece"
and so on for all needed parameters

then with relevant macro press start button for grinding

Any value between 30-5000 added to the .var file will become persistent once added. Named parameters are in-memory only and cannot be saved into the .var file from my understanding nor should they be. You could use a function to temp store the value into a variable not stored in the .var file and then place that value into a text file and then write function to recall it from the file back into the temp variable for use again but this becomes redundant.

Named parameters are best suited for internal O calls only for descriptive purposes. If you plan to store them by convention you should use a valid variable number in your .var file and provide a comment in you macro above each call to describe the use so that in many cases you can easily transfer the macro with minimal changes to and other cnc controller that uses a Macro B typing system such as Fanuc. Siemens would be the exception as Siemens uses modified Pascal(YUCK!) for macros.

You can if I understand the docs, use named params in a py file but do not know how and as stated above would not follow convention so I would never seek to know how.

Hope that helps.
