I am obviously doing something totally wrong and will hopefully feel stupid when I figure it out but now the keys don’t work at all.
I have a Win 10 laptop with an external USB Number Pad that I bought just for this since the laptop does not have a number pad. I disconnected it first and still nothing. Pressing the buttons on screen works fine and all other functions work just like they should.
I installed an external keyboard with a num pad and still doesn’t work. I made sure numlock was on. There is no response from the software or CNC when I press the numpad keys.
I then brought in the other laptop with LB on it that I use for design work that has a keypad and it doesn’t work either.
I have reset the computers, reset the CNC, used Carbide Motion to move it around then exited and went back to LB and ran the Use Laser macro and still the keypad does not work.
Capturing the keystroke reports this for the 8 and 2 keys:
keydown keyCode=104 (h) which=104 (h) charCode=0
keypress keyCode=56 (8) which=56 (8) charCode=56 (8)
keyup keyCode=104 (h) which=104 (h) charCode=0
keydown keyCode=98 (b) which=98 (b) charCode=0
keypress keyCode=50 (2) which=50 (2) charCode=50 (2)
keyup keyCode=98 (b) which=98 (b) charCode=0
The only thing I haven’t replaced is the guy behind the keyboard.
To recap I have a Shapeoko XXL, grbl 1.1f and all other CNC and Laser functions are working great.
Thanks for the help on this
Edit: Forgot to add I am running version 9.04
