  • Losing Graphics Display Window

    Running 4.2Mr1, The Hexigon cal. tech has been here this week calibrating our CMMs and (it seems) when they leave, I have some type of software problem. Anyway, when I execute my programs from the edit window (normally the screen changes to the graphics display screen and I can view the probe measuring the part) ... now, the graphics display screen disappears and the tool bar is the only view on the screen. When the program is complete ... the graphics display returns and doesn't go back to the edit window. Any suggestions?? Is this one of the corrupt gbarstat.dat file things? Thanks

    You need to set up a windows layout the way you want it. Let me know if you need help with that.

          That worked ... now toolbar is re-arranged and "grayed"????? I'll pause again and put my toolbar back in-order. Thanks

            Which one is grayed? You shouldn't need all your toolbars on there when executing a program. That's probably why they're gray cause you can't use them during execution.

              Note that PC-DMIS remembers has two different states for your windows and toolbars:

              1) During programming.
              2) During execution.

              This means windows and toolbars that were set up for your programming environment may not be the same during execution. Simply pause execution set things as you want them and resume. The next time you execute, PC-DMIS should remember what you have opened and where you positioned them.

                Thanks guys ... eveything is back to normal. I didn't know you could pause during execution and make changes! Learn something new everyday. Thanks again.
