Re: Drop Down Box, 3.8 compatibility?

Apologies for bringing an old post to the front, but has "Begin Dialog" been deprecated in 3.8? I have numerous programs that measure multiple variations of parts depending on the result of a Select Case statement, and they rely on a custom dialog such as this one to let the user select which variat...

Re: DDE Reports not closing

I'm seeing this same issue lately, and it appears that the excel process that continues to run is tied in "symbiotically" to the CMM-M process. If I force kill Excel from the task manager, CMM-M loses the ability to read or write from excel files until CMM-M is restarted (I'm running 3.5). However, ...

Re: Extract report header data for external command prompt

Figured out a roundabout way to do this, if anone's interested... Since I'm trying to extract the Serial Number from the report header, I use DDE to report it out to what will be a dummy Excel file that overwrites every time the program runs: Capture.JPG Then with VB Script, open said file and read ...

Re: Extract report header data for external command prompt

Create a String variable in VB then use variable for External Command argument. That's what I tried to do here: dim Export as String Export = "\\fs\Engineering\StockCar\Manufacturing\Quality Control\Simulation Component Definitions\Chassis\Engineering\PRS-"+InputBox("Enter serial number")+".csv" Bu...

Re: Extract report header data for external command prompt

Ah... that space definitely isn't intended, but there's still an inherent space between each argument in the external command that I can't seem to get rid of.

Extract report header data for external command prompt

I'm trying to write an external command into a program that will open a CSV file at the end for analysis. I'm using Notepad as an example, but the intent is for a separate in-house program to open the csv. The name of the text file is dependent on the serial number of the measured part, and as such,...

Re: System Error 20 with Romer Absolute arm

We tried 2 Win10 PC's, and a Win7. We saw the same super-lag on all three with the RDS 4.2, only tried RDS 4.0 on the Win7, which gave us the least lag so far. Right now, we're rolling one of the Win10 laptops back to Win7 and we're going to reinstall everything to it with the RDS 4.0. I'll update ...

Re: System Error 20 with Romer Absolute arm

It's connected via USB, is the ethernet just for a handheld scanner? Or is that required for regular arm operation as well? EDIT: Tried an older version of RDS (Hexagon 4.0) and the lag has been reduced significantly, down to about half a second from pressing the button to CMM-M registering the poin...

Re: System Error 20 with Romer Absolute arm

Update: I disabled User Account Control on a whim (I was getting annoyed with it popping up every time I opened CMM-M), and now the arm is connecting in CMM-M... It's very laggy though, takes several seconds to take a point after I've hit the button on the arm.
