Having a hard time figuring out where to start

Hi all,

I’m trying to use the HTML URCaps thing to create a UI for our UR Robot - however, I’m having a hard time figuring out where to begin. I loaded up eclipse, am able to package and add a URCap file to the simulated robot, but unable to create my own. How do I create my own URCap, that has buttons that do different actions? Do let me know!

I want to create a UI for our UR5 Robot, as well as a UR3 Robot. Please help me create this if you can!

Hello Vayalur,
Have you seen this article? https://plus.universal-robots.com/download-center/urcaps-starter-package/
In the /Instructions section, start around step 5 to create your own URCap.

Thank you @prichlin. I have been able to make the URCap since my time making this post, but how do you make a button in URCap? Just use HTML? Or is there a different way? Trying to find some documentation, but I can only find instructions for input text fields.

The URCaps HTML Tutorial available here talks about this: https://plus.universal-robots.com/download-center/urcaps-tutorial/

Additionally many of the samples included in the starter package include buttons so you can use those for reference. More info on samples here: https://forum.universal-robots.com/c/urcaps-plugins/samples
