Just another Touch screen project

Hi,

I'm having trouble getting my touch screen menu to work correctly.

I currently have 3 fullscreen zones that I switch between. They are: Menu zone, Video overlay zone and Video zone. I'm using the hide/show command with linked zones events to control everything. The overlay zone is interactive too.

 

The main problem is how I display a volume variable on the video overlay? I need to be able to hide it once I go back to the menu zone.

BA doesn't let me use link zones event with live text.

Cheers.

    You can try and use the Zone Message event, instead of the link zones event.

    You could also provide a link to your presentation file, so we can take a closer look.

    Hooray, that worked! Thank you very much.

    As a side question, got a RS232 command that turns on a projector, but it doesn't work each time. Is there some obvious reason for it?

    rs232 is usually pretty reliable. How often does the rs232 command fail? when you publish, on the publish tab, do you have serial debugging enabled? If you do, that can cause problems with serial commands sent to devices.

    So far it seems random, same touch area might not respond a few times and then it suddenly works. I don't recall having debugging on.
    When i make a change to the presentation, does it remove all the previous settings?

    I'm using a Optoma projector.
    Sending a serial string with EOL which looks like this: "~0000 1".

    Ok, the issue is with the touch, not with the serial? If you log into the players ip address, from your browser, you can look into the system log of the player when you touch the screen to see if there are touch inputs reported in the log. when you publish, enable debug to the system log so you can see output from the brightauthro project on the log tab. 

     

    Either the touch points aren't being read or the serial commands aren't being sent even though touch is recognized.

    No, the touch area responds by changing menu state. Visually the menu works fine, it's just that the RS232 commands that are tied to the touch event don't work as intended.

    WIll it malfunction if I put the same 232 command twice in a row as event and entry command?

    The player is not connected to the network currently.
