Plugin - Can I get the job start timing in Repetier-host plugin

edited April 28 in Repetier-Host
I am implementing a plugin for Repetier-host, and I would like to get the timing when a print job is started like the events to get job stop timing such as JobFinishedEvent or JobStoppedEvent. Is there a way to achieve this?

Currently, I create a timer event with Windows form and make the timer monitor "IsJobRunning" at a certain interval.
However, in this way, it is impossible to get information at the moment of actual initiation...

Thank you!


  • No there is no event at the moment.   I added
    event FunctionVoid JobStartedEvent;

    for next release, but that will probably end of june as server release is first due.

  • > I added event FunctionVoid JobStartedEvent;

    I am looking forward to the release.

    Oh, could you add an event at the moment Pause print is pressed too?
    Because (at)pause command doesn't seem to generate any log, it is helpful if I can get that.

    Thank you again.
  • Actually all this is not needed. I saw there is a function to register named events in IHost.Because I'm lasy here core events informer registers to

                host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:printjobStarted", EventCatcher);
                host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:printjobFinished", EventCatcher);
                host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:printjobKilled", EventCatcher);
                host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:printjobPaused", EventCatcher);
                host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:fatalError", EventCatcher);
                host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:slicingFinished", EventCatcher);
                host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:sdprintStarted", EventCatcher);
                host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:sdprintFinished", EventCatcher);
                host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:progress_sd", EventCatcher);
                host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:progress", EventCatcher);
                host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:filamentchangeRequired", EventCatcher);

    For continue there are 2 more events:

    so guess everything you need is already there.
  • Thank you for your explanations!! The event registration perfectly works.

    I wrote the following registration in an initialization method.

    host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:printjobStarted", JobStartedEvent);
    host.RegisterNamedEvent("core:printjobPaused", JobPausedEvent);
    Then, made these methods as event catchers.

    private void JobStartedEvent(string text, object val){
       host.LogMessage("JOB STARTED");

    private void JobPausedEvent(string text, object val){
      host.LogMessage("JOB PAUSED");
