How do you make a URCap that replaces the main screen?

Hi there,

I am in the process of developing a URCap. Just two questions I have in this process are:

  1. How do you make the URCap show up on the Installation screen? Mine don’t, and they don’t throw any errors in the console from which I run URSim.

  2. Is it possible to make the URCap show on the main screen, instead of the normal screen in Polyscope 3.6? We want to have a Run program button that does what the run program button already does, and a Move Robot button that goes to the Move Robot screen, where you can manipulate the robot to move in different directions.

Do let me know if these are possible.

Thanks in advance

In respect to question 1, did you remember to register your Installation Node Service in the Activator?
