Bootup Splash Screen

Postby jealand on Tue May 14, 2024 3:20 pm

I am trying to display a page for a set time like 10 seconds and then load the next page.

Using it like a splash screen to display a logo animation.

Is there a better way? Can someone help me how to automatically change display page or set the display page value after a image sequence runs or a set time,

Thanks in advance.

In display creator Page 0 is your default page so shows when none of the other pages conditions are true
Your splash page needs to have a condition that will display it for the required amount of time, this is best done using a timer.

The timers trigger condition could be battery Volts > 5v for .02s
The timer would run for 10s, then reset itself.
The splash page condition would be - splash page timer is running = true

I've not tried it but give that a go, and let us know how it goes.

I use the built-in channel "Device Up Time [s]". This starts at zero when the dash is powered on. You can have an extra page (your splash screen) that has the condition "Device Up Time [s] < 10 [s]"

Hi David a while back Adrian suggested against using device up time in user conditions, does this apply here or is it a different scenario?
