Display a image at the start of each round/Break
« on: May 12, 2011, 08:36:39 AM »
Hi

Dont know if this is possible but thought i'd ask.....I know that you can use the display a message before each round or break,is there a way so that for example at the start of each round I can design an image that will display for say 10 secs at the start of each round and at the start of each break.

Thanks In advance

There are several ways to do this.  You could design a screen that is displayed at a specific time in your tournament.  You could use a Banner within your layout.  Or you could use an event to display a message over the screen and include an image in that.  What are you trying to do?

Hi Corey

Thanks for your help..I'm wanting to make an image that I can just change the blinds on..So for example I have an image of a royal flush and using adobe photoshop put the text on the blinds have gone up to 100/200,than make anothe for my next round, so i will end up with 14 copies of the same image with the different blind levels on and want the releavant image to show for around 10 seconds at the start of that round, also I have three breaks so will need to sort an image for them as well.

Thanks

Arthur, this seems a little a complex mode of creating an image for each blind level, would you not be better with the blinds simply being displayed over your image?  If you have a look at the UK Casino layout you will see the images I embed on the layout with the clock over the top, you can use the same method to use your own image for rounds or breaks, you will note from that layout it's red with REMAINING during rounds and blue with BREAK TIME during breaks.

Download the layout and have a look anyway, I think you will get a better feel for what you are wanting to do from it.

Regards
Stu

  • On the Events tab, create a new event.  Select Create a new event from scratch.
  • Enter a Description
  • For Trigger, select A level starts
  • In Conditions, enter:

    isRound and roundNum = 1

  • Press the New Action button
  • Select Display Message
  • Enter for the message:

    <img src="path-to-your-image-file" height=100 width=100 border=0>

    * Of course, you need to enter the actual path to your image file for the blue text above.  An easy way to do this is to find the image using Windows Explorer, then right-click on the image while holding down the Shift key, then select Copy as path.  Then just insert the copied path.

  • Press the OK button to close out the dialogs and create the event.
  • Now, move the event to the top of the list by pressing the Sort Events button.

An easy way to test how it looks is to assign the event a Hotkey and then press the hotkey to display the message.  To assign a hotkey, edit the event and enter a hotkey in the Hotkey field next to the Trigger field.
