QtDragon feature request go_to_zero

I was wondering weather it would be possible to put in a feature (for QtDragon) request to have two buttons added to the jogging interface.
One to goto machine zero and one to go to WCO zero (G54)
There is a nice place on either side of the z+ & z- buttons where it could go without cluttering up the interface too much & this would seem like the logical place from a work flow point of view.

I see that there are similar buttons in QtDragon_hd & it would be convenient to have them for those of us that sue smaller screens.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there

I was just having a quick play with the new screen & trying to figure out if it is referencing a macro (ngc) file.
If it is could you tell me where it is getting that from of if it is embedded could I suggest adding...

G53 G0 Z0

at the beginning so that the spindle does not collide with the fixtures on the table.

I have added the file that I use to go work zero just as an illustration. ( it goes to z -5 for traveling)

Thanks

Sorry to keep hassling you, but I spoke to you on one of the other threads earlier about jog rates & you added a hal pin for me.
qtdragon.jog-rate
That doesn't seem to be there. I can see it in the git pull I did but cannot see it in halshow on my simulation I've setup.
I was wondering if you could check that I'm not missing something.

Thanks

The pin will be 'qtdragon.slider_jog_linear'

I should have thought of the Z problem.
I have now pushed a change (to master) so qtdragon uses INI based MDi commands for the buttons.
ADD this to your INI:

[MDI_COMMAND_LIST]
MDI_COMMAND = G0 Z0;X0 Y0
MDI_COMMAND = G53 G0 Z0;G53 G0 X0 Y0

Hope that helps.

Hi there

Just a not to confirm that that all works.
I have uploaded a default ini file (for qtdragon) with some comments added which I thought it might be a good thing so that people will know what is these are for.

I have run this and tested it on a real machine to confirm that everything works as expected & just to confirm you can substitute you own gcode file in the form of...
MDI_COMMAND = O<go_to_zero> call
for those that want to do so (which makes this a really flexable tool)

On a side note I noticed that when I went through the pconf wizard to setup a new machine that the probe screen button was missing, however when I created a sim machine the probe button was there.
Am I missing something that I have to setup?

I don't see the uploaded file.
Thanks for the feedback.
I should add something to the docs.

for probing add this to INI

[PROBE]
#USE_PROBE = versaprobe
USE_PROBE = basicprobe

I updated the docs a bit for qtdragon in master.
