I have just started to learn how to customize my own post, one thing I have successfully has done is to automatically open the output NC-file with a external editor (In this case Cimco).
But I would like to be able to control if the file should be opened or not with a checkbox inside the postprocess dialog. Just the same way that "List output" works.
Is there a way to and a checkbox to the postprocess dialog?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I don't think so.
But you could do a couple things (not quite as good, but I know they can be done):
1) Use a TK dialog after posting to ask the user if they want it opened
2) [I think] Use Menuscript and a "ACTIONS/POST" to pop up a dialog with the same question.
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2
I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
The dialog cannot be customized.
I would put a UDE on the PROGRAM group, like we do with the operatior message.
Then the post can check that.
Thanks for your help!
I was afraid that it wasn't possible. I think that have a dialog box to come up every time you postprocess can be annoying.
I ended up to control it with a custom UDE
