(EXE) Assistant Stage Manager's View

Post by RobertBell » Thu Oct 09, 2008 9:39 pm

This project started when I was working on Tale of Two Cities on B-Way this summer. See this topic.
I've changed it now so that User configuration is dead simple - NO NEED TO RUN VB.NET to customize your display. Objects in view are click and drag and shift-click to change the font (including colour and underline etc.) Layouts are stored automatically so there is no need to save files are anything. It's as simple as entering in the IP address of your console and you're all set.

This is an example of how you may want to set it up:

This is what the Options box looks like now:

Here is the exe zipped up:

There is only one file (ASMView.exe). Place it anywhere and double click on it. It's that simple. Let me know how it turns out.

I'll post the code in a response to this post so as to not freak out those scared by code.

I tried to install but when I try to run the ASMView.exe it says:

Cannot initialise correctly (0x00000135). Click OK to quit the application.

Do I need to install any additional software such as .net frameworks?

Latest .net framework is required on all OpenPalette applications.

Thank you. Now it does work.
Is there any chance the Followspot app. will come online anytime soon? I would really like to have a look at that one too.

Robert mentioned that it won't actually work until 10.5 is released. Something in there that he was using last summer for Tale of Two Cities that doesn't exist in 10.4.x.

Keep an eye on
OpenPalette.org
for the latest applications, etc.

Andrew is correct, most of the other apps require 10.5.
Many experimental things dealing with text in that version.

Hopefully it will shift to Beta soon.

Robert, could we talk to Gordon about this as another tab option for a VN touch screen?

Sure. He and talked a bit at LDI. He got a good demo of it all. The code for Cue Tip SM (as this is now called) is truely trivial. He could whip this off in less than a day.

I've been using this one alot recently. Very nice.

2 small things.

If there is no label on the next few cues it won't display the next cue number for me. Until it is the current cue.

I'd like to be able to save the window size. What are the dimensions of the window? To be able to fit a image in without stretching.
