    Maybe I'm missing it but I don't see a way to edit in the graphic editor other than to add new. If I place a button in the wrong spot I have to edit the raw XML file to change it. I thought maybe I could at least do it in the lower left text area but I cant change that either. Other than that (and not being able to use the keypad) this is working great.

    Is there a way to set a timer on a digital output, in other words once a command is given by a button to activate an output can this be set to turn off after X minutes/seconds automagicly

    When the image is in the pre-lock status, right click it. It will bring up the edit menu.

    So you can right or left click what you want to change 1 time. It will change the other images to low-detail, and change the icon in the top right to an unlocked lock instead of the red circle x. Now, if you left click it, it will move the image around your cursor. If you right click it, it will bring up the editor.

    Yes there is a way through logic right now that works. Set a variable to -1 or something. Have a button change the variable to 0. In the logic section say if between 0 and x then turn on digital output also make it increment the variable by 1. Then have a if variable is x, then set to -1. So it fires it, increments it, and after so many iterations, the variable becomes x and then changes to -1 and stops.

    I will be making an animation section so you just select the time/iterations and it will do this part for you. But that will take a bit.

    Thanks, thats working now, I don't know why but earlier I was able to do that with the background image but not the button images-probably wasn't holding my mouth right.

    Now I will try to figure out the other part of your reply, Looks like gibberish but I am sure once I start working through it I will understand what it says ..as well as learn a thing or two while I'm at it!

    Allrighty then, Now that I have blood oozing from my ears and a softer forehead from banging it on the desk, I am ready to ask more questions so I can find out just how far away from what you told me to do I am!

    I made a numerical variable named "Timed Off" But I couldn't figure out how to give it a negative value as you suggested so I gave it a value of "0". Then I changed my button to a "Change Variable", Target ="Timed Off" and Opinion ="+1".

    Next I went to Configure Behind scenes Logic, this is where the Hemorrhaging began! A picture is worth a thousand words so here is what I did;

    Now I have no clue if this even close to what I was supposed to do and even less of an Idea of how to go on from here if it is.

    no not quite like that. I will draw something up for you and send you the designer and config files for you. The beauty of modular programming.



    And to go with this, I finally got logic to load. It connects all the nodes, makes all the modules, but it doesnt place them. This is because, the config file doesn't save designer info for root modules. I am going to try to make it automatically try and place things. But I have never done any algorithm like that. I have an idea though. So right now they all end up 1 ontop of the other in the top left corner. You can click them and move them back to where you want and they will stay there as long as the program is open. But onec you close the program and open a file from scratch they bunch back up in the corner.

    To tell you guys the truth, I never thought a self taught non-programmer like myself could ever create a program as advanced as this or the base MDX program! So it is all learn as you go, and I think I have got the base correct this time!

    GREAT..I am still steadily beating a dent in my desk with my head!!! something I can dissect and figure the whyfors and howtoos about would be great!
    Thanks

    Oh when I got the right click to change button properties thing working it was without a background image, if I put a background image in it doesn't seem to work?

    Whoops. I went to reply and clicked edit accidentally. Sorry about that. I think I put it back.

    You cannot right click a background image. To change a background image, just click the background image button again and it will keep your settings.

    Well What I meant though is that I cannot edit the button properties any longer once I have a background image, no biggie, I can always just wait to add the background after i have it all set the way i want it.
