as promised here (http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=3609.msg20529#msg20529
), I talked to Chris (Pluto developer) and asked about current state of adding support for showing data for various devices on Orbiter floorplans. It seems that this interests more and more LMCE users, since currently only very limited number of devices can be properl shown and controlled from floorplans.
Chris agreed to help with necessary info - originally Eugene was meant to code this, but he cannot do that... Chris added few comments on this mantis thread for a start :http://mantis.linuxmce.org/view.php?id=3456
I'd be glad for your comments and if there is anyone willing to contribute work in this direction. Chris will help with all info needed - he claims that it's pretty straight forward... He will respond to mantis thread notes...
The whole idea is pretty simple (no new events or whatever). Just ability to add another device data to device templates that would specify what will be shown on floorplan (if at all) - this could be another device data entry or just simply device state... Orbiters will refresh that info every few seconds and I think this is good enough...
I also described few more info about how Orbiters show info for devices on floorplan (but don't know if that info applies) :http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Adding_support_for_floorplan_devices
Anyone willing to help and work with Chris ? Any other opinion ?
Thanks in advance,
