Screen Blanker Examples
#1
Does anyone know if there are any screen blanker examples around? I need to time out my new bedroom screens.
Thanks,

You use a command, sent to the Intf. Viewer target, to set the timeout (after no user interactio) in milliseconds. You can also indicate the timeout mode with another command, to just put up the blanker window, the blanker plus blank the display, or to put up the blanker with the clock display.

So you can control the blanker from the interface itself if you want to do so, to enable/disable it or set it for different modes. Or you can just set these commands in the onpreload of the main template. If you only wanted to do it in certain rooms, drive it from an environmental variable as to whether it's done or not and check that variable in the OnPreload.

I guess to be more specific, should I use the Global Action server and set up an ontrigger to start a timer of some sort on interface load. Am I making this more confusing than it needs to be?

The blanker system has a timer built in. Generally that's what people want, to just have it time out after some period of inactivity. Are you looking to do something more than that? You just send a command to the Intf.Viewer target to tell it how many milliseconds of inactivity before it blanks. Or are you looking to force it to blank from somewhere else?

Well actually both; First and easy, I just want to implement the blanker with clock on each screen . I then want to implement a wake up to common area screens that is triggered from an occupancy sensor in the room. I understand how to do that via the action server, I am just having issues with the local blanker method.

I got it. I was making it really hard for some reason. I will attempt the Global Action method on Friday night. I will post if I cna not figure it out.
