PoleDisplay

PoleDisplay is an application that allows you to use a PoleDisplay for various different applications. This is perfect if you want to turn off your screen and do basic things with your monitor turned off.

Some of the things I would like to implement are below:
  • Show the current date & time.
  • Play audio files and show the information on the screen - such as the length, track in playlist and the file or song name.
  • A basic calculator.
  • Show whatever contents you want on the screen, realtime, by reading a textfile and refreshing it constantly to send it out to the display. This is great if you want to develop an application yourself and then send text to the display simply by writing the text to a text file when the display needs to be updated.
  • A menu system to choose between implemented features.
  • Keyboard shortcuts to select items on the screen.
I intend to make this compatible with a serial pole display, but may also make this work with a USB pole display as well.
