QML window timing out in plugin

Recommended Posts

Posted · QML window timing out in plugin

I'm adding a feature to my plugin (HRNautilus in the Marketplace) that largely mimics Cura's WelcomePagesModel. The user installs the plugin and on initial reboot of Cura it pops a flow of windows that makes setting up Cura for the Nautilus easier. I have adapted the WelcomePagesModel to successfully guide the user through the flow and it works great on the Windows machine I've been testing with. For some reason on my Macbook, the window disappears after anywhere from 1-10 seconds. Does anyone have an idea what might be causing this timeout? I've looked into the Log and there are no statements timed up with the disappearing of the window. I also added a button to manually start the welcome flow and the same issue occurs, though the window stays visible for slightly longer before vanishing.

 

Source code for the plugin with all of the welcome flow can be found here. The welcome flow is run by HydraWelcome.py (in /files) and all the qml is in /files/qml/welcome. If anyone wants to test this, I'm happy to send or post a .curapackage for easy install.

A welcome flow should be handled by adding a machine action, which can be triggered when a machine is added. An example of this can be found in the custom fff printer (custom.def.json). When that is added it always shows the machineSettingsAction (It does this by setting "first_start_actions": ["MachineSettingsAction"])

 

You could just have a machine action that in itself has a few steps.

Thanks @nallath! I think I can make it work by tying in to the machine action. For my own learning, do you have any idea why the window might be timing out on Mac? Is there a place I could look to figure that out?

I have no idea what could cause that. There shouldn't be a difference for this on the operating system.
