scrolling text field

Postby maik » Mon Jun 04, 2007 11:22 am

Is there a scrolling text field button or a way to make one? I would like to have more information displaying in a smaller area.

requested numerous times. I think I had some beta versions, but I don't think that Mario ever put one into a production library.

Mario keeps getting "hung up" with the "perfect" one that is completely customizable and I keep telling him something is better than nothing :)
I am sure we are both "right".

I know Mario has a full plate, but a scrollable text field button is a must, now that we have access to large amounts of data to display in ML. Could we move it up on the list of To Do's PLEASE :)

I don't know if this has been addressed yet? I don't see anything in subsequent posts. I too would like to access a scrolling text field. In my case I want to display weather warnings. This was never an issue in the NY area but with the continuous thunderstorms coming through (seems like it is every other day) the weather service now provides very accurate predictions on when they will pass over our town.

Scrolling text is included in the latest MainLobby client releases. See the MLCalendar sample scene or the DVDLobby 3.75 scenes for examples. Also documented in the Release notes of MainLobby 3 client.

Interestiing - do you do an 'alert' like on TV? How do you kick it off and where is the feed coming from?

Frank,
One way is via an RSS feed. MLRSS can grab the RSS message. Then, you can display it, including using the Text Scroll option to scroll thru your text if longer than the MultiLine text box screen real estate.

There is also a WeatherAlerts script in Homeseer that can grab the messages. It's been a long while, but my guess is same could be done in MLScripts without Homeseer.

I'm pulling it down through a homeseer script and then sending it to MainLobby.
