Create a custom symbol for switching assets in client view (kiosk + hidetoolbar)

I would like to create the possibility for our client to switch assets in their view (kiosk + hidetoolbar) by clicking on "prev"/"next" buttons (custom symbol). I am not a 100% sure which method to adapt to achieve this goal.


I was thinking of using the whether I should choose an injection of webServices as suggested here for another problem:

Loading PI Vision Displays from Toolpane


or use displayProvider for changing each symbol individually as for another problem presented in

Creating PI Vision Symbols that Interact with Each Other


or perhaps even another approach which lets me just switch to next/previous asset and updates all symbols automically (probably the most elegant way).


So here are my two questions:

1. Could you perhaps point me in the right direction to my solution?


2. Where do I find documentation or references on webServices, displayProvider and other objects used in PIVision?

(So far I only found the document "PI Vision 2017 Custom Extension Creation")


Thanks a lot in advance,


have a good day,
