MacroButton User’s Interface

Sardana provides a button widget to operate a macro execution. As all Taurus widget it needs a model, in that case the model points to a Door device. This widget also needs the set the macro macro and its parameters in case it has.

The MacroButton can execute/pause/abort the configured macro.

Once you clicking in the button, if it is possible the macro will be run. On the bottom of the widget there is a progress bar that shows an estimated progress of a macro (in %)


If you click again on the button, when a macro is still running a dialog box will be showed to allow you to choose to abort the current macro. If the executed macro implements pause points the macro will be paused utill you take the decision (resume or abort).
