Different Homing buttons and values in different browsers



  • With the latest firmware and DWC I'm seeing different behavior in different browsers on my Mac.

    Firmware Name: RepRapFirmware for Duet WiFi
    Firmware Electronics: Duet WiFi 1.0
    Firmware Version: 1.20.1RC2 (2018-01-01)
    WiFi Server Version: 1.20+1
    Web Interface Version: 1.20

    The X, Y, and Z homing values are different. They actually command the amount of travel shown.

    Firefox

    Safari

    Chrome



  • I don't know anything about Macs but on a PC, DWC changes the layout to suit the window width. So dragging the side of a window to make it narrower will change the layout. I'd guess this is normal and desirable as otherwise the buttons would become too small.



  • Ian I think the point he is making here is that in Safari it shows a Home All button (Normal for a delta but not Cartesian/CoreXY) but in Firefox and Chrome he gets the individual Axis Homeing buttons I guess this is an Issue with Safari and the very reason I use Chrome on My Mac Also the Z Hight is different in Safari for some reason.

    I think you may have a problem with some of the browsers using a cached older version of the .js file.



  • Is it not a font size issue? DWC reduces informations if there is not enough space. And a larger font reduces space…



  • Just zoom in and out (ctrl-wheel or ctrl+, ctrl-) and you will see the layout change. Bootstrap (which I think is the framework being used) alters the layout depending on the window width and the scaling.

    Hi Doug,

    Bit confused. I see home all button then the individual axes all stacked vertically in one layout but then the same buttons stacked left to right in the other layout - unless my old eyes are deceiving me 🙂

    My Bad I hadn't spotted the vertical stacking very weird and that is how my Chrome looks as well will have to try Firefox I think and see what that does I do know Google has messed with quite a bit of stuff lately



  • You also have more moving boxes (+100/-100). I don't see any problems: it depends on the available space. Different browsers uses different font sizes, so manage space in different ways. DWC adjusts itself. As it adds a line, it regroups buttons on the same line.

    I was wondering what they were talking about also. Same stuff, different layout.

    No worries mate. For info, I use Firefox and see the same layouts depending on how I resize the window.



  • Yeah I see that now if I narrow down my Chrome screen then they move at a certain width to be horizontal rather than vertical stacked



  • Sorry, I guess I buried the lead in that message:

    @JohnOCFII:

    I now see that changing the window width shows the additonal buttons for each axis, but Firefox actually has different values for the Z axis than the other two browsers:

    Chrome and Safari show:

    Z-50 Z-5 Z-0.5 Z-0.05

    While Firefox shows:

    Z-100 Z-10 Z-1 Z-0.1

    for those 4 or 8 movement buttons.



  • Settings -> Machine Control -> Half Z Movements

    The state of this is probably stored in the browser, not the Duet.

    That was it! Thanks.

    In this day and age when it is common (for me anyway) to interact with two to three web browsers on multiple devices (laptop, tablet, phone), even across the duration of a single print, I wonder if this information could be saved and loaded from the Duet itself. It feels like DWC was not designed with the multiple simultaneous browser environment in mind.

    Correct, it is only designed for 1 consecutive connection at a time. It’s so fast that it’s normally irrelevant, but it does raise questions like these.
    If everything were set on Duet you wouldn’t be able to do custom things or client basis, so guess it’s a trade off as always ?

    It would be possible by adding a username to the initial login.
    Then the settings could be saved on a per user basis.
