Web Slices
« on: November 20, 2009, 10:30:38 PM »
Hi,

I am trying to incorporate a webslice from theweathernetwork.com into the screen, but it doesnt display properly.

Has anyone tried to do something like this? If so, were you able to make it work and are you willing to let me know what to do?

Thanks,

-Brian

Brian, this is very effective with magicinfopro. I use BBC website, however the one you use is fine too. You can publish a webpage and pan to a certain area. There are offsets parameters that you can set when you create a web frame. I use Offset Left -200 and Offset Top -200 and set the appropriate width and height and I get the BBC iPlayer (ie BBC 24-hour news). The same can be done with the weather.

I find that this is one of the best ways to use magicinfo pro.

Thanks for the reply Bill,

I have created a web spot on the screen, but the window handles show on the screen. How do I eliminate those?

Thanks again,

-Brian

Brian, there are some parameters that you can set and that includes to get rid off the scroll bars - if  that is what you mean. Check on the right hands side, click on the Web Frame, Screen and then select the Scroll to Off. And that's it!

Thank you Bill!

It works well. I just used the actual web page and had it refresh every 15 minutes.

Thanks for your help.

Is there an easy way to configure the offset for a page or is trial and error the only way?

I put the offsets to where they look good while creating the screen, but when I preview the screen (tools, preview screen) things are cut off or look wrong. Is the preview inside the screen creation not accurate? I have zoom set to 100%
