Second function for on/off button

This is not related to SDK, but the teach panel. When I am testing my programs and robot does not go where I want, I find it really hard to press Pause (or Stop) button.
Wouldn’t it be great if current physical button on the teach pendant would Start/Pause program (or at least just Pause) on short press and display Shutdown/Restart/Cancel dialog on long press? I find E-Stop too dramatic for most situations and would rather use it for real emergencies.
I mean, if you were making a car, you wouldn’t put brakes on touch screen, right?

Check out the I/O section in installation.
You can configure any standard digital input for external play, pause or stop button.
