Add new text - special tag from active source

Post by sfu68 » 05 Sep 2021, 23:13

Good evening,

My screensaver is composed of a fixed background and a dynamic image in the center which is automatically modified every 1 minute.
Many thanks for this feature :-), the current date and time are broadcast.

On my background screen (which is fixed) I enter numbers on the image with "paint". I have to regularly update these numbers by modifying the PNG file.
Is there a possibility to modify my figures from the name of a folder that I rename and which would be added as a special tag, to avoid me having to systematically modify the PNG file with "paint"?

thank you in advance for your help

You can use this special tag:

[#ttPictureFolderName#]

to show the folder name of the currently shown picture.

Is this what you wanted?

Good evening ,
thank you for your reply.
alas no that's not what I wanted ...
I finally found a solution by simply replacing my figures shown on my screen background, by a "text" tag that I modify ... But the problem that arises is that they are modified live. I would like to schedule my beacons to be changed automatically at 11:59 p.m. (for the next day's numbers). Is it possible to apply the tag modification later?

thanks in advance

Do you need to display current date?
