Make installation file that boots to URCap directly?


I was wondering how to boot directly to a URCap, without having to go to Installation, then select the URCap, and then do the work from there? As in, I want to show the URCap on boot, and not show any of the other options that Polyscope normally shows on boot.

Also, how do I make buttons that link to the Run Program functionality of the tablet? I need that, as well as a button that goes to the Move Robot screen. It will go to the screen with the blue arrows. Please let me know ASAP.

Thank you in advance, and Best Regards

i would recommend to build your own Robot UI on a client Interface and use the RTDE to communicate with the robot.
It is neither possible to show up a URCap on boot not to build your own run Program button inside Polyscope (this could only be achieved by a physical button using digital Inputs when a Program is active).
The only thing that works is to open the Move Robot Screen when using the getRobotCallback Method.

Where is the getRobotCallback method? And what do you mean by build your own UI on a client interface? Is there a guide on how to do so, or do you just build one out on python? Please elaborate.

Thank you so much!
