Hi Guys!

Can any of you help me in how to make an ask to the user through Teach Pendant. I didn't find any information in the manuals or even the internet about it. Would that be an option?

Sorry, I don't.  We don't use it here, I was just aware of its availability.

Hi, here's an example using DIALOG. (See attached TXT file). This is a macro job. You need to define your message strings, and button strings, set the x-y coordinates for the position of each string and button, then construct an argument dependant on what you want to use the DIALOG UI for. I did this one on the fly so it's not perfect (declared more local variables than I needed) but works perfectly.

In this example we look to see if the controller is in Teach mode, and check to see if we are in single or multi-job mode. If the controller is in Teach and single-job mode the dialog appears telling the technician to switch to multi. Simple!  :yesyesyes:
