Feature request - PanelDue ATX power on/off



  • Hi,

    Did not find a wish list for PanelDue.

    I'm sorely missing power on and off M80 / M81 on the PanelDue. I keep opening the console and touch keyboard to do this because the printer turns it self off every time i press STOP. I do not want to turn on ATX power when I power on the printer mains.

    I have the 7" V2

  • Taking a quick look at the code it does not look daunting to fix my self

    Looks like I could add something similar to the stop button on row 2 after all the heaters. Then fix the event code.

    	DisplayField::SetDefaultColours(colours.powerOnButtonTextColour, colours.powerOnButtonBackColour);
    	mgr.AddField(new TextButton(row2, margin, bedColumn - fieldSpacing - margin - 16, strings->pwrOn, evPowerOn));

    Why not set up a macro to do this?



  • It would make it easier but having power on/off on the main screen on paneldue would be better 🙂

    As most users have fewer than the maximum 6 tools, I am considering using the right hand side of the temperatures area on the Control page to show buttons for some of the macros.



  • Macro buttons would do nicely. That would even be better.



  • I was just getting ready to ask for this same feature this morning. I do use a macro right now but an atx on/off button or macro buttons on the main screen would be great.

    Just out of curiosity, what would happen for users of 6 tools? I do have 6 by default when using my 5 colour hot end (one for each of the primary inputs plus one which is a mix of all 5). It's no big deal as I can do what I need from DWC. So if the needs of the many would better be served by utilising the space for something else, then I' not going to make a fuss. Just curious what DWC will display when I'm using 6 tools that's all.

    I was thinking of displaying the first few macros only if there are 2 or fewer tools defined when using the 5" or 7" screen, and only if there is just 1 tool defined when using the 4.3" screen.

    Ah OK. That works for me.
