Files not shown in DWC or PanelDue, but M20 shows them



  • It seems DWC and PanelDue do not show newer files if there are too many files in the gcodes folder.
    I suppose the OutputBuffer gets full at a certain file count and then just early-exits the file listing.
    M20 still shows them. For me this happened at around 85 files.

    I consider this a bug because neither DWC nor PanelDue show any indication of an error. One way to solve it would be a "pagination" approach (in DWC) and a dynamic reloading of the file list in PanelDue.



  • I think this is a known issue. Making (sub) folders within the gcode folder and putting files in these folders works.

    I actually have a problem now that folders have stopped showing up. It seems like there may be a maximum number of those, too. (And its not big, I have maybe a dozen, and the last one I created no longer shows up in PanelDue.



  • Hmm - that's not right. I have about 20 folders and thinking about it I think the number of files within a folder is a lot higher than 85. Faulty DC card? Just guessing….

    Folders and files are both enumerated in the same list. So if the list is full, then new folders as well as new files may fail to be displayed.
