    Post Loading and executing a G-code file from outside KmotionCNC

    We currently use the Kflop to control a robot for a testing application. We use a C# form to create a G-code routine then use KmotionCNC to execute it. We would like to be able to automatically execute load and execute the G-code in KmotionCNC with the C# form (external call). At one point in V4.33q this functionality existed:
    ON_COMMAND(ID_ReloadGCodeFile, OnReloadGCodeFile)
    ON_COMMAND(ID_OpenGCodeFile, OnOpenGCodeFile)
    ON_WM_COPYDATA()
    However, it seems this wasn't included in the 4.33 final release. What would I have to do to get this functionality with 4.33?

    Thanks,
    Troy

    Hi Troy,

    Sorry for the delay. Somehow I missed this post. Is it resolved?

    The functionality should be in V4.34i

    Hi Tom,

    Yes. V4.34i allows us to use C# to open the Gcode file in KMCNC per the example in C:\KMotion434i\PC VCS Examples\SimpleFormsCS, and DoPC(PC-COMM_EXECUTE) to execute it.

    Thank you!
    Troy
