SignageStudio / Javascript horizontal ticker extremely slow
« on: September 11, 2013, 10:38:28 AM »
I tried the RSS new horizontal ticker but when I increased the font size, the ticker items actually overlapped and became unreadable.

Since that didn't work, I tried a swf ticker I downloaded from the web. That was too slow and since I didn't know how to change the timing, I finally decided to write a ticker in Javascript/HTML5 using the canvas component. It runs great in a local browser but when I include it as in my campaign presentation as an HTML component it's 5 or 6 times slower, literally creeping across the screen.

How can I get the HTML component to play at the same speed as it does in the browser. Is this just an Adobe AIR problem? I hope there is some way to get a fast, good looking horizontal scrolling ticker in Mediasignage.

I watched the XML video but I was wondering how to get at the data inside an element tag's opening and closing brackets vs. the data in a field tag. Here's what I mean. If this were my file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding='UTF-8'?>


<arg1>I'm not using this</arg1>
<arg2>It will be read in a different component</arg2>


<row id="1">
<column1>This is the data I care about</column1>
<column2>Blah Blah Blah</column2>
<column3>Blah Blah Blah</column3>

<row id="2">
<column1>Blah Blah Blah</column1>
<column2>Blah Blah Blah</column2>
<column3>Blah Blah Blah</column3>



How would I get at all of the column data (all the "Blah Blah Blah" statements)? Is there even a way to get at something that isn't a field?


General discussion on the mediaSERVER / XML Component for server
« on: December 13, 2012, 01:24:47 PM »
Will there be an XML Component for the Server edition? I noticed that one exists for the Enterprise, but not for the free media cloud. I sure hope there is one!

SignageStudio / Reading from a text file/XML?
« on: November 29, 2010, 08:46:03 AM »
I was wondering if it's possible to read data from a text file into a signageplayer, specifically an xml file.  I have the file available as a URL and want to just map it into various labels/boxes on a screen.  The only thing I see under components that looks like it might do this is Catalog Item but I don't know how that works or if that's even the way to go.  Is this even possible with this software?
