    Own GUI buttons with menu functions

    Hello.

    I have a touchscreen and would like to add my own buttons to the GUI, with which menu functions such as "measure / corner" can be activated.

    Is that possible, and if so how?

    A Description can be found at

    Add the following to the txt for the toolbar you want to add the button to and you get a Inside Corner button
    Code:
    cmd: "Machine.Measure.Inside_Corner" "Inside"

    OK. That worked.
    Now I would like to make small drawings for the buttons in the SVG. What resolution is needed there?

    SVG is vector file. Resolution does not apply.

    Yes, I thought so too.
    But then QCAD does something wrong when exporting to SVG. The .svg from QCAD are very small as buttons.

    Send SVG to my email and I'll examine it.
    and include your profile zip file.

    When using Inkscape I found that I had to set a custom document size of 50px by 50px for it to display properly in TNG. I found this by looking at the svg files provided and that was the page size used in those.

    Thanks.
    I also tried inkscape. The buttons are not centered there.
    I also downloaded some from the Internet, they are too small or not centered, or both.

    Thank you for the effort. I've got it now with QCAD.
    I had to enlarge the objects exorbitantly.
    I can live with the current situation.

    Re: Own GUI buttons with menu functions

    Nothing, it is my error. I used incorrect name:
    cmd: "Machine.Advanced.Start_From_Selected_Line"
    but I fixed it and in next version it will be:
    cmd: "Machine.Start_Option.Start_From_Selected_Line "

    Yes, I have now found out. I looked in the language-text files.
