Browser Tab switching while using tab

Post#1 by jvercelletto » 11 Oct 2018, 17:13

Hello and thanks for your help

I have tab switching enabled so I can use the kiosk as a digital signage tool as well as a kiosk. So one tab is the kiosk (browser based) and the others are ads interactive web pages. I have the timing set to scroll through the tabs every 30 seconds. The issue is that if they are using the kiosk, it still scrolls through the tabs. Is there a setting to not scroll unless there is not activity for a certain time?

I could use the screensaver option but then the ads would not be interactive and I am limited to jpg's or png's. I am trying to make it more interactive.

Any ideas?

Thanks, John

Hello jvercelletto,

"Is there a setting to not scroll unless there is not activity for a certain time?"
There is no such parameter available at the moment.

"I could use the screensaver option but then the ads would not be interactive and I am limited to jpg's or png's. I am trying to make it more interactive.

I believe you should use 'screensaver_webpage=' for this case:
