attached captures of my in-progress experiments with a bedside alarm clock plus...
The 2nd screen is a screensaver which fades in to almost completely blank the screen, but it leaves the clock display visible (but dimmed) - this is how I'd envisage it running most of the time. - a press anywhere on the screen restores screen1. The clock element is positioned at exactly the same coordinates so that changing between screens is very smooth & seamless. - Only problem is, without a client-side timer, I can't figure out how to get it to behave like a real screensaver & display automatically after X mins of inactivity, - right now, I have to press the button to bring it up... :-(whilst
I also seem to have discovered a bug whilst working on the up & down arrow functions for setting the alarm time, - but that's posted in another thread...
These are my 1st 4 screens. Though, for the most part, they are similar recreations of my mainlobby screens. Still a lot more data to pull through, and most of the main screen icons dont do anything yet
Edit: The floor plans of the house show future planned additions that are not built yet. My house is not this big... yet
2nd Garage, and Theatre room is the next part. Then the back wing (3 beds and a bath).

Here is a version of my thermostat control. The cool part about this is that two of the thermostats are ZWave TZ16's and two are TX16's controlled via DooStat events. I would like to add a Red/Blue/Off button image for mode being Heat/Cool/Off but I haven't worked out how to do that yet.
After getting tired of changing the background and all of the buttons to change the color scheme... here's my first pass at a transparent frame and button.
The only difference between the test screens is the Screen Background Color Property.
** BUG ALERT **
When you copy a screen, Graphics Objects that are "Locked to the Background" become unlocked in the copy.
The frame on these screens is a Graphic Object, which is locked to the background.
** BUG ALERT **
If you load this same frame as a background, The transparency only works when you first add it to the screen. After that, screen background color changes are not reflected to the screen. It looks like it merges the background color with the background graphic when you drag the background to the screen, then stores the result. After that, background color changes are ignored.
Great Program So Far, But Yes It's a BETA.
