myCNCG - cross platform graphical gcode sender

Post by ariffinastute » Thu Jul 19, 2012 12:04 pm

Hello all, this is my first post in this forum. I'm happy we can have conversation in this forum.

Yesterday, I found very useful and interesting g-code sender build on Processing, develop by damellis (David A. Mellis)
I already test the gctrl g-code sender on my CNC, it's run smoothly.
I found it here: https://github.com/damellis/gctrl

I made a decision to make little modification, on adding GUI on the gctrl g-code sender.
this is what its looks like:

but, I have these problems, I hope members can help me how to make it done:

1. How to show file name on the Processing, the location is after "File name:" as on the picture above.
2. I have run the g-code sender and the running g-code is shown on the Processing text area. Is it possible to show the running g-code on the interface, the location is on the box below the "File name:" box as on the picture above.

The edited gctrl code: http://www.mediafire.com/?4k450e0kxn7phgo

Pre-compiled gctrl (windows-32bit): http://www.mediafire.com/?ailgsxcwxy282dj
Pre-compiled gctrl (macosx-32bit): http://www.mediafire.com/?epu2qcbhamwpp6t
Pre-compiled gctrl (linux): http://www.mediafire.com/?cd5y2gyyh7uxfbt
* I'm sorry I only have Windows OS, its run smoothly on Windows. I hope members can help me try on other platform.

I hope somebody can point me to right direction.
Still learning tough.

Thank You very much :)
I'm happy to see your comments and feedback.

I have tried to run my Shapeoko with this software and it run nicely.
I like the reset function as I didnt have to push the reset switch button on the board,
I am not a software guy so I cant help much.
Hope somebody here will help to get the real time streaming to the window :)
