Programming

The LED panel or pharmacy cross are sent a set of scripts to be played according to a schedule. You may submit up to three scripts. Each script consists of a sequence of scenes, each can be made of an animation background, a message, and a fringe that framed it. To explain the operation of the program we will explore all its options explaining their functionalities.

Main Window

Ussually you will be working with the main window shown down here. As shown in this screenshot, it has a small menu, and the remaining area is used to edit the schedule which subsequently be sent to the LED display.

Ventana Principal

Menu Bar

It has four parts: Script, Communications and Device Parameters. In each section we have several options that are explained in more detail in chapter 2.

Barra Menus

List of Scenes

In this section we have a list of scenes corresponding to the selected script from the tabs: "Open", "Closed" and "Special" If you select a scene from the list you can see its features in the scene setup (3) and (4 ). If you double click on one of them, you will see a simulation of it. If you want to simulate the sequence you shall use the "Play Scenario" button. Also you can modify your order or delete some scenes by clicking on the buttons "Forward", "Backward" and "Delete" . The scripts under 'Open', 'Closed' and 'Special' will play in the pharmacy cross or LED panel according to the schedule.

Lista de Escenas

Scenes Editor

This box is used to compose new scenes or modify an existing one. The "New", "Add", "Save Changes" and "Preview" buttons are used to create a new scene, add it to the script, save changes to the script (if it was already created) and simulate it.

With the other controls you can (from top to bottom): -Insert a name for the scene so you can identify it in the list. -Specify the number of consecutive repetitions you want to have. -Choose The type of scene.

Create a New Scene

First you should choose the schedule tab (open, closed, special) in which you want to add the new scene. Then you have to press the New Scene button from the form. Once you decided the name and type you can begin to select the other features. Before adding it to the list, it can be previewed using the Preview button. After pressing the Add button, the new scene is added at the end of the list. If the text is set as 'immediately' and is too long to display, then the system will notify us by marking the oversized part as blue text.

Editing a Scene

To edit a scene simply select it in the list. With this, its parameters are displayed on the form. From that moment the contents of the form can be modified. Upon completion of the modifications just press the Save Changes button.

Scene Types

When you are about to generate a scene, you must specify the type in the form (3), these are the types: animation, text, time, date, temperature and ultraviolet.

Animation

Select an animation from the list as well as its speed and number of repetitions. You can optionally specify a border. It is also valid to specify a border without any animation.

Text

It allows you to type the text to be displayed on the cross. How to represent this text can be selected from three options: immediate, horizontal displacement and vertical displacement.

For the text you can also specify the font type, duration if the speed is immediate and if horizontal or vertical scrolling.

Optionally you can select a background animation. The text will always appear above the animation, so that the animation will never interfere with the text visualization.

Optionally, you can also select a border. The border always appears above the text and animation so that the border is always visible. This must be taken into account when writing an immediate text as the border could cover a part if it is too large.

Hour

This type of scene displays the time in HH: MM format. It has the same characteristics as the Text type.

Date

This type of scene displays the date with the format DD.MM.YY. It has the same characteristics as Text type.
