Qtaxis and probing was created by Roguish
So, transitioning an old BP mill from axis to qtaxis.  Had to update linuxcnc from 2.7 to 2.9pre.....
I see panels available to include in qtaxis.
Could someone make a panel for versa_probe.ui ???  and the necessary handler file (if necessary)....
and include them in the distributed panels in /usr/share/ptvcp/panels ????

I've made a panel by copying the test_probe panel and deleting the button, adding the versa_probe widget, and renaming to versa_probe_panel.
Added it to the [DISPLAY] section.   It starts up but fails.  No clue what the handler file needs to be.....

attached here is the qtaxis.ini   and the output from running it in a cmd terminal - shows the errors.

even if I could figure this out, I really don't want any custom panel of my own.  Much better to just add a few lines in the .ini [DISPLAY] section and maybe a few more lines.........   that way it always gets updated as required.....

thanks.

I pushed a new panel versaprobe.
It was already on my computer - but I have not actually tested it integrated with qtaxis

i might point out versaprobe is already available in qtaxis as a popup panel - select it from drop down menu.

OK,  tried it, still get errors.
Did a new install from buildbot2 (seb's repository  : buildbot2.highlab.com)
checked and the latest deb includes your addition...cool.
see the files attached.  one is the cmd terminal output, other is the qtaxis.ini
Questions:  what should the EMBED_TAB_COMMAND   line actually be?  exactly?  document reference?

also, I see the 'view tooltable' and 'view Origintable' in the File tab, and they both come up with panel.
so, same request.  How about making panel files for the tooltable and origintable???  would be very handy to make as embed tabs.

try the -c option to change the component name or the panel.
linuxcnc.org/docs/2.9/html/gui/qtvcp.html#_ini_settings

You could try your hand at making panels yourself.
It will be at least a couple weeks before I can put any real time on linuxcnc.

The error seems to be:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/qtvcp/core.py", line 154, in newpin
    p = QPin(_hal.component.newpin(self.comp, *a, **kw))
ValueError: Duplicate pin name 'enable'
Which is to be expected if you try to load versa probe in a config that already has versa probe loaded.

I edited the qtaxis.ui file and changed the following true to false:
      <property name="versaProbeDialog_option" stdset="0">
       <bool>[b]true[/b]</bool>
      </property>
And after using the embedding commands from your ini file this is the result:
Warning: Spoiler!

That's a better way for sure. Thanks Phill

well, I can try an make the panel ui's, it's the handler files that I can't handle.... if they take simple generic handler files, like the one you included with the versaprobe.ui panel, then it's easy copy and rename...

A little more pressing issue is that on my new install on my mill, I had to run the qtvcp install script to get anything to run, as it was not installed via the linuxcnc deb I used. the deb file was from Seb's buildbot2, so maybe this is a Seb question/issue.

Probing....
in the qtdragon section of the docs, section 12. Probing, section 12.1 is Basic Probe, but there is no section on VersaProbe. In particular, what the heck are the 'Adj Offset' fields and what are they used for? I have used Probe_Screen by Vers and those factors aren't in it.....a little documentation would help.
And, how about a calibration routine for both Basic Probe and Versa Probe. Several other UI's have one...

Phill's change make the pop-up version not work.
Why was the pop-up version not to your liking?

Versa probe is based on vers probe version2. I believe that the adjustment just adds an direct offset. I am not sure if the purpose. Have you read the help dialog. It's pretty terse but that is all I found.

I didn't make either probe basic or versa probe. Jim made one and I adapted one. Jim worked on both to consolidate the code.

I don't know what calibration entails.
I'm sure that won't happen for 2.9
