gladevcp — Virtual Control Panel for Machinekit based on Glade, Gtk and HAL widgets
gladevcp [-g WxH+X+Y] [-c component-name] [-u handler] [-U useroption] [-H halfile] [-d] myfile.ui
-g WxH+X+Y 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.
-c component-name Use component-name as the HAL component name. If the component name is not specified, the basename of the ui file is used.
-u handler Instructs gladevcp to inspect the Python script handler for event handlers, and connect them to signals in the ui file.
-U useroption gladevcp collects all useroption strings and passes them to the handler init() method as a list of strings without further inspection.
-x XID Reparent gladevcp into an existing window XID instead of creating a new top level window.
-H halfile gladevcp runs halfile - a list of HAL commands - by executing halcmd -c halfile after the HAL component is finalized.
-d enable debug output.
-R gtkrcfile explicitly load a gtkrc file.
-t THEME set gtk theme. Default is system theme. Different panels can have different themes.
-m MAXIMUM 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
-R 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.
