I have a customer that brought up a concern about the gripper toolbar.  They believe that the gripper toolbar should not be made available to the average operator because of concerns that they could accidentally mess up the program.  I'm not sure I agree, but here are their concerns:

"If you pick something up, move it to a drop off position then opened the grippers to drop it,  if the program did not send an open gripper command before picking something else up (relying on the previous state of the grippers) and the operator closed the grippers before it reached the pickup zone again, the robot will crash into what you were picking up with closed gripper jaws.  This is easy to program around, but this is my understanding of the concern expressed to me."

Is it possible to display the toolbar only when in the "program robot" screen?  Is this a functionality you would consider adding?
