Help Me / Re: Screen scroll
« Last post by Corey Cooper on June 22, 2022, 06:04:39 PM »
The built-in screens will only scroll if their content won't fit on the screen.  Are you saying 10 tables fit but you've got more tables configured?

As for automatic scrolling, it's either on or it's off.  And it only scrolls if it can scroll.  That is, if the content is taller than the screen.  You can't configure it to only scroll if the content is too tall AND some other condition (you have more than 10 tables).

Unfortunately not at this time.  The built-in screens don't have the ability to display layout tokens.  There is a <seatingChart> layout token which you could add to your layout.  It doesn't look quite like the Seating Chart screen, but it could suffice.  You could create an additional screen that has the clock, blinds, and seating chart on it (using the <seatingChart> token), and whatever else you want, and display that to your players during a table break down.  As an example, you could name this screen something like "_tablebreak", using an underscore as the first letter to ensure the screen is the first screen in your screen list (screens are ordered alphabetically on the Layout tab).  This has the effect of making it screen number 1.  You don't include this screen in your screen sets, so it doesn't get displayed at any time automatically.  When you break down a table, just press the 1 key to display the first screen and automatically lock the screen.  Now your players see the seating chart as well as the blinds, clock, etc.  Once the break down is complete, press Ctrl+U to unlock the screen.

Is there a way of adding the current blinds to the seating chart?
Often whilst breaking a table I will lock the screen so players know where to sit but then the blinds are not visible.
Can the seating chart screen be tweaked to add the blinds at the top so players can see a small version of the blinds?

I have searched the forums but can't seem to find if anyone has requested this previously or mentioned how to do this.

OK, so update: this is definitely possible.  The Now Playing widget I referenced is essentially for embedding the currently playing song in a web page, which is very similar but different enough that it wasn't really right for the TD.  I played around with it and got it working.

Here is the cell contents I used:
Code: [Select]
What's Playing?<br>
<iframe src="lastfm.html" style="height: 110px; border: none"></iframe>

And the following code is referenced by the cell contents.  Save this to a file named lastfm.html.  Wherever you save it, you'll need to put the full path to it in the "src" attribute in the cell contents (above).  So if you save it to C:\temp\lastfm.html, the above needs to be <iframe src="C:\temp\lastfm.html" style....  Also update it with your API key and user name:

Code: [Select]

  let apiKey = "YOUR-API-KEY-GOES-HERE"
  let username = "YOUR-USERNAME-GOES-HERE"
  let frequency = 3 // check every 3 seconds
  let template = ""

  function update() {
      url: "" + username
        + "&limit=1&nowplaying=true&api_key=" + apiKey + "&format=json",
      dataType: "json"
    }).done(data => {
      try {
        let tracks = data.recenttracks.track

        for(let track of tracks) {
          // Check if track is now playing.  It won't have a timestamp so add one.
   = parseInt(, 10)

        tracks = tracks.sort((a, b) => { return - })

        let track = tracks.length ? tracks[0] : null
        let html = template
          .replace("{track.artist}", track ? track.artist["#text"] : "")
          .replace("{track.title}", track ? : "")
          .replace("{track.album}", track ? track.album["#text"] : "")
      } catch(ex) {

      window.setTimeout(update, frequency * 1000)

  $(document).ready(() => {
    template = $("#songInfo").html()

  <body style="color: #000; font-family: Segoe UI; font-size: 15pt">
      <div id="songInfo">
        <div style="background: #fffc; padding: 5px;">Title: {track.title}</div>
        <div style="background: #fff8; padding: 5px;">Artist: {track.artist}</div>
        <div style="background: #fff4; padding: 5px; color: #fff8;">Album: {track.album}</div>

This uses jquery because the example I took it from used jquery, but the reliance on jquery could pretty easily be removed.

Basically this code queries the API every 3 seconds to find your currently playing track.  If one isn't being played, it should display the last played track.  I am brand new to so there's really very little I know about it, but this seemed to work for the account I created.  There's more data that is returned by the API, including an image, if you want to spruce it up a bit.  With my limited testing, I didn't see any actual album name or album art returned, so your results may vary.

If a simple GET request to a URL returns HTML, then the answer is probably.  I don't use, but I looked briefly through their API documentation and (a) it looks like it requires authentication (doesn't necessarily rule out use, but makes it more complicated for sure) and (b) I couldn't find anything that returns HTML.  It looks like a typical API which will return data as JSON or XML, which would then have to be processed.  If there's an endpoint that returns HTML, it could be put into an iframe:

<iframe src="" style="height: 100px; width: 200px"></iframe>

But of course the above won't work because "html" is not a valid format (json and xml are valid formats).  From the above you'll get back something like:

<lfm status="ok">
  <recenttracks user="USERNAME" page="1" perPage="1" totalPages="0" total="0"/>


  "recenttracks": {
    "track": [],
    "@attr": {
      "user": "USERNAME",
      "totalPages": "0",
      "page": "1",
      "perPage": "1",
      "total": "0"

Neither of these you would want to display.  They would require code to process and build HTML.  You might be able to use something like this:

With that HTML file and JS file just in a folder on your hard drive.  But I can't say if the security features in Chromium will allow it to reach out to another server or not.  If I get some time I'll try this out.

Perhaps a bit of a long shot but does anyone know if it's possible to display the song I'm currently playing, as fetched from to which it's being scrobbled, in a layout cell?

I know that it's possible to pull this information from the api in the form of an html display but I don't know how to use this information in any meaningful way.

<actionSummary> is the token you're looking for.
