So far it works amazing and you just saved me a lot of money. What was your workflow for making it usable? I dug into it a little bit but the amount of time it looked like it was going to require didn't seem worthwhile. You nailed it.

So many people are going to come out of the woodwork thanking you because like me they probably bought it without realizing that this exact model didn't have a working plug in already.

Do you intend on releasing the information you acquired while reverse engineering this undocumented pendant?

Are the Alternate "FN" buttons adjustable?

Yes, alternate buttons are usable too.
Information was gathered from the various sources (Linux CNC machinekit project) and of course had to sniffer the USB port.

Are they adjustable like the Macro buttons?

I ask because I know that M-Home homes the machine but w-home button doesn't make any sense to me.

I just came across this post as I have just added a laser to my CNC machine. I had been using Mach 3 with ESS and kept having so many errors with the ESS that I switched to UC 300ETH and it has been fantastic for milling. But now with the laser the Mach 3 post processors for Inventor CAM that I use are poor to say the least so I ran into the issue that using Mach 3 with the UC 300ETH is not a good combination. So I decided to give UCCNC a try but found that it did not have support for either my Huanyang VFD with modbus or the wireless pendant WHB04B-4 so left it well alone till your posting of the latest plugin. I too did not want to go and buy a new one so with great hopes I rushed to my machine loaded up UCCNC and installed your plugin but alas it does connect and show the coordinates correctly on the Pendant and on the DRO's of UCCNC but no movement or any further commands are enabled or controlled. The plugin once set to both call and enable just causes the Pendant window to open it says its found it but then hangs and I have to reboot UCCNC to get rid of the pop up window.
I'm running Windows 10 not connected to the internet or anything totally stand alone also UCCNC version 1.2111 the previous Mach 3 UC300ETH setup has been running flawlessly for 2 years. This would be my ultimate dream to have this working because I have also since found another potential plugin for the VFD so I could make the switch to UCCNC permanent.

Any guidelines or help you can give me to get this running would be much appreciated.

OK an update since I've now spent some more time testing it out.

The pendant will work all axis with only the step command no continuous motion, spindle start stop works perfectly, reset works, Fn Feed + and Feed - work correctly.

So we are very close to having it fully functional exciting times!
