Dynamic Macro Issues

Postby zenod » Sat Jun 09, 2012 3:36 am

Hi,

I have the latest QAD 3.0 installed on windows. I am a new user of QT so please excuse me if I am being dense.

The dynamic script "DiningTable" found in library/misc works brilliantly no problems.

The dynamic script "MyRectangle" found in library/misc shows the size menu but fails to draw a rectangle.

The script "CubeCutOut" posted in http://www.ribbonsoft.com/doc/qcad/3.0/ ... ripts.html fails. I followed the detailed instructions. I can see the icon. I do not see a menu when I drop the script into the drawing area. I also tried using QTCreator for the simple form without success, the code generated is very similar to that posted on the page.

Clearly something is not right as the "DiningTable" is very complex indeed compared to the other two examples.

Any newbie help would be welcome.

Hi,

After banging my head on the wall for a while, I got a working version of "CubeCuttingOut" but not of "Myrectangle".

For whatever reason, Windows 7 decided that my file permissions were incorrect and refused to open the form although I could open the .js file. I have no idea why this should be nor do I understand why "MyRectangle" fails as this is installed by QCAD and accessible by QT.

My solution for "Cubecuttingout" was to delete the entire mess, recreate the files on the desktop, copy that to the program file location and it worked first time.

The solution in general may be to avoid "program files" as a useful location for personal scripts.

Note - I am using "64 bit ultimate" with hardware enabled 32 bit emulation so that might be a factor.

Happy w/e all.
