json 'str' data type issue - PPP

Recommended Posts

In Post-Processing Plugins, if I use the 'str' data type for an input field, it appears to disable that field if there is nothing in it:

 

#               "line1":               {                   "label": "First Line",                   "description": "First Inserted Line",                   "type": "str",                   "default_value": "This",                   "enabled": true               },

 

If I set the default_value to "", then I can't type anything into that field in the PPP. If I leave it as 'This', I can type into the field. If I delete all the characters, then it locks the field and I can no longer type anything into it...except a period (.) and only a period - nothing else even after that.

Am I missing something?

I have a hunch that you can type numbers, right?

Silly me, didn't try that.

Yes, I can type numbers any time.

I can type letters in fields that already have letters.

But once its blank, only numbers and a decimal/comma are allowed.

So if I want to have a field that I can enter gCode into, what should I 'type' it to?

Thanks!

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
