Automatic Cycling of Specific Displays on a given monitor
We have a customer inquiring as to how to implement the following functionality:
With a single mouse click or function key initiate the cycling of a specific set of displays on a given screen (for instance there could be an xA client set up in a read only mode at a location different from the main operating area). A second mouse click/function key press would disable the display cycling.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
In PG2 you can use the now() function together with the MOD math function (maybe the percent sign, '%'m that return 0 at some configurable interval) to have a View Invoker to call a new display. Together with a General Property and some logic you can have a group of displays automatically exchanged given a specific value on the General Property (who's value you control with a push button, etc visible in the displays).
The now() function is used a lot in the PG2 demo displays (load them from the bundled .bat file below, I believe C:\...\Process Portal A\demo\...)
