Duplicating X-Controller features

I’m in the process of building my own GRBL-based machine, using an Arduino Uno for a controller. I’d really like to be able to duplicate the Pause and Play functions on the X-Controller as they’ve come in handy more than once.

Can anyone give me some advice on duplicating these commands in standalone hardware? (Like a panel with buttons on it.)

Feed Hold (Pause) & Resume (Play). Connect to ground when your button is pressed.

You just need two switches, hardwired to the Arduino and you are all set.
