Scrolling text remote updater
« on: September 17, 2015, 09:44:29 AM »
Looking for more advice from the forum on a feature my customer wants...
The customer wants to make changes remotely to the scrolling text feed in his signage campaign.  The customer does not have access to the software so it would have to be one of the components that allows the customer to interact with the presentation using one of the other tools.  The catch is that the component needs to update the scrolling text at the bottom of the screen.  Does anyone have an idea of how to accomplish this?

Thx

There many ways to load custom data.
JSON is prob best, and you can use transition between items. Host your data anywhere and just point to it via http.
See this: http://www.digitalsignage.com/_html/video_tutorials.html?videoNumber=JSON

Unfortunately, I am not a developer and after watching the video I am still unclear on how to accomplish this.  If there are any developers out in the forum that knows how to build a custom component that will allow a customer that does not have access to the studio pro application a process or tool that will allow the customer to update the campaign with text, pictures or video would be stored on my server, please contact me.
Thanks
Greg

Use an RSS feed component and have a dev write a front-end to update the RSS feed.
