webOS Display Commands


#1

Settings for the Xibo for webOS Player and the monitor itself can be controlled in the Xibo CMS. This can be done by Commands sent directly to the Display or via webOS Display Profile settings.

This page will explain what Commands can be sent to the webOS Player and what impact will they have on the Player and monitor.

Basic Commands

Commands need to be first created and configured as explained on the Command Functionality page.

Display Commands available for the webOS Player are very straightforward, as listed below:

displayon
displayoff
reboot

Advanced commands

Please note: The following settings are only available on Xibo for webOS 1.8R10 or later.

Advanced Commands can be sent from the CMS to set specific Monitor Settings for the Xibo for webOS Player and are created in the same way as all other Commands in Xibo.

Set using the following format:

backlight 0
brightness 50

A full list of the available Commands and their ranges is shown below:

Lock

Please note: The following settings are only available on Xibo for webOS 1.8R10 or later.

It is also possible to send osdlock and usblock with true or false values via a Display Command.

osdlock - with this Command you will not be able to access the monitor settings, change volume, brightness etc from the remote control.

usblock - with this Command any device that you plug into the monitor using the USB port will not work, the monitor will not accept input from it/will not read from it.

It is important to note that Settings applied to a Display Profile will override individually sent Commands.

Scenario:
The Display Setting has brightness set to 60,
A Command is sent to that Display to set the brightness to 100
At some future point (most likely at the next collection interval) the Display will revert to the original setting applied - brightness 60.

In this case, the best practice to control brightness via a Command on an ad-hoc basis, a preset value in the Display Setting should not be configured.
