Auto Export
« on: April 25, 2011, 08:58:40 PM »
Hi All,

Wondered if it is possible to setup an Event or preference to auto export the seating chart to a pre-defined folder with a pre-defined file-name every the tables are balanced?

Thanks,
Brian

Hi Timmer,

Thanks for your response. The reason that I'm looking to export the seating chart relates to how I run multiple monitors.

My setup today is basically as follows -

Video Card #1 ------ Monitor 1 (Not a player facing monitor, used only for Tournament setup dialogs)

Video Card #2 ------ Monitor 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 (player facing monitors, used to display the active tournament screen)

I want to add the following (JodiBingo got me thinking about this idea last year) -

Video Card #3 ------ Monitor 7 (Dedicated screen specifically for the seating chart, big monitor in full view of all players)

I do not believe that TD currently allows me to send particular non-active screens (seating chart) to different extended displays - I can only send the current active TD screen to one extended display. I can however, export the seating chart in HTML format and open it in Firefox. I can then send firefox / seating chart to a specific extended display (monitor 7). I can setup Firefox to automatically refresh in predefined intervals. So it was my hope that if I can get TD to auto-export the seating chart then I'd be able to pull off a dedicated display just for the seat chart that would be updated every 15 seconds (or however long I setup the Firefox auto refresh for.

Hope that made sense,
Thanks,
Brian

I agree with you Timmer, it does make sense, even to a low-level personal user... lol... I would "go all in" on the thought that many commercial users at casinos especially would benefit from this idea :)

No, there's no way to do that.  But I have considered allowing multiple windows, so you could display the Tournament screen on one display and, say, the Seating Chart on another.  Just another one of those "to-dos".
