Probe Macro Values

M-Code System Variable Macro Value Probe
M59 P2 ; #12002 1.000000 Tool Probe Selected
M69 P2 ; #12002 0.000000 Work Probe Selected
M59 P3 ; #12003 1.000000 Probe Enable
M69 P3 ; #12003 0.000000 Probe Disable

If you assign the system variable to a viewable global variable, you can see the macro value change in the Macro Vars tab under CURRENT COMMANDS.

For example,

M59 P3 ; #10003=#12003 ;

The global variable #10003 shows the output from M59 P3 ; as 1.000000. This means that either the tool probe or work probe is on.
