I have 3 existing digital signs with things like time/temp, pictures, and general data for our employees. These are displayed in common office areas. I’ve been reaching some limitations with the software and don’t know if we can make the investment in something like tightrope.
So I got to thinking - why not use ignition. I own it and tt already has some of the data I need to display and has plenty of scripting abilities to make the screens change. Here’s some thoughts:
Scrolling Marquee - found some code on the forum that does the trick
Switching windows on a timer - did some tinkering - can be done
Auto Launch full screen - works (except a real fine border line around the window)
Auto launch on boot - there is a script that will do that on the forum (replace the explorer shell)
One final issue I can’t nail: how can I force the client to update when I publish an update to the project? I don’t want the banner up on public screens.
Has anyone this for something that auto launches and is displayed in a public area? What issues did you run into?
