This was posted on the Bugzilla site but the response was that the feature IS NOT supported (uh, but it USED TO BE):

A feature that used to work in the v1.4.0.27 firmware is now broken.

Specifically, if you had an M-Variable defined such as:

CycleStopPBOff->Acc65E[0].DataReg[0].2.1; // (CYCLE STOP Pushbutton OFF)

and you attempt to add it to a gather by selecting under a Detailed Plot via

the defined User Globals, you now get the message:

"Acc65E[0].DataReg[0].2.a is not a valid command."

That used to work.

 

Also, if you attempt to use a previously setup Gather using the same variable,

you will receive the message:

"/var/ftp/gather/GatherSetting.txt:22:17 error #31: invalid function in

equation: gather.addr[15]=Acc65E[0].DataReg[0].2.a UnlinkGatherThread:

root@147.185.x.xxx:/opt/ppmac#"

You cannot gather a user bit field you must gather the entire register.

Please implement (or reimplement?) this feature. It is EXTREMELY powerful to plot your IO bits on the machine instead of dragging out a scope or logic analyser!

 

If I were to try and sell people on this system that would be one feature I would push on customers because not alot of controllers have sub millisecond plotting of any signal on the machine. Mixing plots of servo commands/feedback to solenoid valves turning on and prox signal inputs is very helpful and gives much insight into how the machine is behaving.

 

I might have been the one to bugzilla that one, its been a while. I was hoping they fixed it by now.
