Here is an example file: PromoScreen.cfg

Multi The Multi parameter allows starting multiple instances of the ImageLoader simultaneously or to run the ImageLoader while any other StepOver application is already running. But please be aware, that this is generally not recommended because multiple communication attemps with the pad at the same time but frorm different sources can severely interfer with its functionality.!
NoMultiMSG In case the ImageLoader is started while any other StepOver application is already running, the start of the ImageLoader will fail with an Error Message. The parameter NoMultiMSG will suppress this message.
@<filename><filename> filename of Textfile with the used parameters.

Instead of writing all parameters in a long command line, you can also write all parameters in a textfile and call this textfile as parameter, which in turn calls all parameters inside this file.

One commandline parameter per line!

Only standard Windows *.txt file extension allowed.!

UseDir=<directory><directory> path to images to transfer to device

This parameter allows to synchronize the files from any folder with the connected device. The naming of the files should be Promoscreen1(.jpg/png/bmp) , ... , PromoScreen4 and/or respectively PromoscreenP1, ... , PromoscreenP4, SignInput, SignInfoBG, SignInfoBGP

If you do not name the images with their target file names, they will all be handled as PromoScreens and they will be automatically renamed and uploaded in alphabetical order.

Please be aware, that the duraSign Pad 10.0 differentiates between...

  • Promoscreen1(.jpg/png/bmp) --> landscape orientation
  • PromoscreenP1(.jpg/png/bmp) --> portrait orientation
DeviceSubDirWorks only in combination with UseDir

In case you are using different device types you can use the DeviceSubDir parameter to extend the previously defined UseDir folder with a device specific subfolder.

These device specific subfolders have to be created manually. Then the ImageLoader will check the connected device, go to the coresponding subfolder and use the image files found there.
