    PI Vision - Editing in Kiosk Mode?

    MikeRay

      Hi All,

       

      Our team is developing some PI Vision screens to display content on a video wall and as such will be running in kiosk mode,with tool and time bars hidden and the browser in full screen.

       

      The issue we are facing is the ability to reliably and quickly get our content pushed out the the absolute edge of the screens. Using the the "FitAll" button that hovers in the bottom right of the screen seems to always leave a relatively large gap of free space on the bottom of the screen. Ideally what I would like to do is maximize our screen real-estate by loading the screen with both tool and time bars hidden, in kiosk mode AND in edit mode as well, so we can push all our content out to the edges. Is there a way to do this, say with query string parameters on the URL?

       

      Thanks!

       

      Mike.

          Take a look at the LiveLibrary URL section: PI Vision

           

          There's nothing stopping you from hiding the time and tool bar without kiosk mode, is there?

           

          /Start?mode=kiosk

          /Start?hidetoolbar

          /Start?hidetimebar

          /Start?mode=kiosk&hidetoolbar&hidetimebar

          /Start?hidetoolbar&hidetimebar

              Hi Asle,

              Thanks for you reply!

              There is no problem doing all three at once we use: ?hidetoolbar&hidetimebar&mode=kiosk

              We would like to be able to then get the screen into edit mode so we can re position the symbols on the display to use the full screen real-estate. We are finding that when we use the "Fit All" button in this mode that we get a strip of unused space a the bottom. We can edit / shuffle things around, then test the screen again in kisok mode with "Fit All" but its a multi step, trial and error type process. If we were in edit mode we could position our symbols on exactly on the canvas as they would displayed.

              Thanks!

              Mike.
