gladevcp − Virtual Control Panel for LinuxCNC based on Glade, Gtk and HAL widgets
gladevcp [-g WxH+X+Y] [-c component-name] [-u handler] [-U useroption] [-H halfile] [-d] myfile.ui
This sets the initial geometry of the root window. Use ’WxH’ for just size, ’+X+Y’ for just position, or ’WxH+X+Y’ for both. Size / position use pixel units. Position is referenced from top left.
Use component-name as the HAL component name. If the component name is not specified, the basename of the ui file is used.
Instructs gladevcp to inspect the Python script handler for event handlers, and connect them to signals in the ui file.
gladevcp collects all useroption strings and passes them to the handler init() method as a list of strings without further inspection.
Reparent gladevcp into an existing window XID instead of creating a new top level window.
gladevcp runs halfile - a list of HAL commands - by executing halcmd -c halfile after the HAL component is finalized.
enable debug output.
explicitly load a gtkrc file.
set gtk theme. Default is system theme. Different panels can have different themes.
force panel window to maxumize. Together with the -g geometry option one can move the panel to a second monitor and force it to use all of the screen
explicitly deactivate workaround for a gtk bug which makes matches of widget and widget_class matches in gtk theme and gtkrc files fail. Normally not needed.
