I am creating a script in skill then trying to replay that script.
My debug tells me that it "Can't find window; form.film_control" or some other thing.
The script is created just fine, but the skill program will not find windows to fillin the forms.
Yet, if I manually replay the script from the Allegro command line it runs just fine.
Has anyone tried to do this and had success?
Thanks for any help.
Here is my code:
(setq PORT (outfile "INCHES_PARAM.scr" "w")) (fprintf PORT "# Allegro script\n") (fprintf PORT "scriptmode +invisible\n") (fprintf PORT "scriptmode +continue\n") (fprintf PORT "scriptmode +noerror\n") (fprintf PORT "scriptmode +noinfo\n") (fprintf PORT "scriptmode +beep\n") (fprintf PORT "setwindow pcb\n") (fprintf PORT "etchedit\n") (fprintf PORT "artwork\n") (fprintf PORT "film param \n") (fprintf PORT "setwindow form.film_control\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control General_Parameters\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control gerber_rs274x YES\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control units_english YES\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control error_abort_all YES\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control error_abort_film YES\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control format_int_places 2\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control format_dec_places 5\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control suppress_lead_zeroes NO\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control suppress_lead_zeroes YES\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control suppress_equals NO\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control suppress_equals YES\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control film_max_x 40\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control film_max_y 60\n") (fprintf PORT "FORM film_control ok\n") (fprintf PORT "setwindow pcb\n") (fprintf PORT "etchedit\n") (close PORT) (axlShell "replay INCHES_PARAM.scr")
Load the command as "general", not the default "interactive"
i.e. axlCmdRegister("run" 'piemansFunction ?cmdType "general")
In reply to eDave:
1) remove the (fprintf PORT "etchedit\n") lines. These are not required and may create problems.
2) either delete the "artwork" or "film param" script statement. Both invoke the artwork dialog.
3) all of the scriptmode items can be combined into a single line
scriptmode +invisible +continue ...
4) If you use the Skill outfile API you may wish to open the file with a leading "./"
(setq PORT (outfile "./INCHES_PARAM.scr" "w"))
This will eliminate the possibility of a user that is missing a leading "."in getSkillPath. Altermatively use axlDMOpenFile
In reply to fxffxf:
In reply to Pieman:
Don't see that happening in my world.
I assume you are doing this from the allegro command line
skill load "<skill file>
It is worked following the suggestion of eDave
Thank YOU Dave,
I thought that the default definition of function is " general",
Now my script runing well from in Skill function.
