In Tiger version 3.0+ and MS2000 version 9.2g+ the Button Function assignment has been rewritten to be more flexible. Every possible button function is now assigned a number. This function can be assigned to any button (@,Home and Joystick Button) and any press duration (Normal, Long and Extra Long press) thru the BCA commands X,Y,Z,F,T,R and M arguments.
The settings of BCUSTOM are automatically saved in non-volatile memory when changed, they will be available even on controller restart.
As of Tiger version 3.18 and MS2000 version 9.2l a button function can be initiated over serial using the
BE F command (BENABLE). The function doesn't need to be assigned to a particular button for this to work.
Note: Behavior of this command is very different pre Tiger version 3.0 and MS2000 version 9.2g
* When button is held down for an instant to 1 sec, it's a Normal Press * When button is held down for 1sec to 3sec, it's a Long Press * When button is held down for 3sec and more, it's an Extra Long Press

Take a firmware build like
STD_XY . This firmware is packed with modules like,
In a built like this there are a lot of modules fighting for control of the buttons. There is a priority list that sets up the defaults button function . Lets Query the controller on what the default assignments ended up being.
1BCA X? Y? Z? F? T? R? M? X=0 Y=0 Z=0 F=0 T=0 R=28 M=18 X: @ Normal Y: @ Long Z: @ Ext Long F: Home Long T: Home Ext Long R: Js btn Normal M: Js btn Long <LF>
BCA X? Y? Z? F? T? R? M? X=0 Y=0 Z=0 F=0 T=0 R=28 M=18 X: @ Normal Y: @ Long Z: @ Ext Long F: Home Long T: Home Ext Long R: Js btn Normal M: Js btn Long <LF>
So @ normal press, does nothing @ long press, does nothing @ extra long press, does nothing Home long press, does nothing Home extra long press, does nothing Joystick button normal press, toggles joystick speed Joystick button long press, loads current position into ring buffer.
If user wants the Ring Buffer to be more prominent, then following command can be issued.
1BCA X=6 F=24 R=18 M=28 :A <LF>
BCA X=6 F=24 R=18 M=28 :A <LF>
Now, @ normal press, moves to next ring buffer position Home long press, clear the ring buffer Joystick button normal press, loads current stage position into ring buffer Joystick button long press, toggles joystick speed

A user with a Tiger system in the above configuration has two clocked position devices. A filter slider on card #2 and turret on card#3. They would like to move these devices with button presses. Lets set it up so that on short '@' button press (less than 1-sec press) Filter slider moves, then on long'@' button press (1 to 3-sec press) the turret moves. The button function that does this is '# 4' (see the table above). '@' short press assigned with 'X' variable, and '@' long press is assigned with 'Y' variable.
2BCA X=4 Y=0 , this tells card#2 which drives the filter slider to respond to short @ press with slider move, and ignore any long @ button presses.
3BCA X=0 Y=4 , this tells card#3 which drives the turret to respond to long @press with turret move and ignore any short @ button presses.
1BCA X=0 Y=0 , this tells card#1 which drives XY stage to ignore any short or long @ button presses.
Try it out. If you like the behavior, commit it to systems onboard memory with serial commands
