  • How do I display a webpage on my touchscreen

    I want to display a website on one of my touchscreen screens.

    Tried to add the URL (http://hs-01/website/buienradar400x400.html , a website offered from my Homeseer server) to a textbox, imagebox etc. No luck.

    Can anybody point me in the right direction??

    Help is appreciated,


    BTW. Using Beta 15 and the lates HS2 version.

    If you are going to place a image best is to use the imagebox.
    see example.

    for the standard text html page see the second attachment

      Thanks, I tried every property that had URL in the name, why did I not think of Text

      Thanks, now it works!

      BTW. How does it refresh?

        at the moment two options.
        click in the screen and hold...then select refresh
        other option is to reload the page..with some kind of a macro.

        Not sure if this is the best method.
        I'm also looking for a method to do that with rss feeds...

          That is no good! I want a configurable auto refresh!

            for sure there will be update soon.
            I have problems with scrolling on same pages..others are working fine.

            The most amazing part is for me the camera support.
            I can watch my Ip cameras on my PocketPC.
            Since few hours the new HTC HD with 480x800 screen.
            this one just looks WOW

              webpage refresh?

              I've got a webpage displayed on one of my screens, and the only way that I can see to have it refresh is to do it manually - not very friendly. There has to be a better way!

                Looks like this was never addressed formally by HomeSeer. Still no option short of using archaic and mostly unsupported html code to meta refresh.

                  Try setting Is video to yes and then setting a refresh rate. I have it pulling a new snapshot every minute off of a webcam this way
