Montage View

Post by bbunge » Tue Sep 04, 2018 8:20 pm

Need a way to have a montage view like the current 1.30.4 version. Or a way to get rid of the header menu. My customers who have the montage up on big screens with a bunch of cameras will surely complain about the "extra"menu at the top of the page.

This one's for you:

Good to know I'm still liked...

A possible alternative would be a dedicated montage viewing page that would show the monitors a user has access to after login. Something to consider down the road?

For other users I would solicit comments on what you or your customers have up on the screen. In the several installs I have there are large screen monitors with up to 15 cameras displayed for management to "watch."

Things have been incredibly busy at my day job with no end in sight.... so in case anyone wonders, that is why I have not been posting much in the user forum.

The current header at the top of the console uses a bootstrap navbar. This inserts some javascript that makes an expand/collapse button automagically appear in the right corner when the screen width becomes too narrow to show all the menu items. This feature cannot be used while simultaneously trying to add a traditional expand/collapse feature. It's either one or the other, not both... hence, my attempt to create a different header just for the montage screen.

In the use case I am considering, the montage view is already at full screen. The issue is the real estate the header bar + montage layout bar consumes on the monitor at any resolution. Once you've got montage set the way you want it, neither of these bars are actively used when you've got it running on an overhead monitor. Hence the desire to find a good way to hide it.

Maybe we will end up redesigning the underlying javascript supporting the header bar, but something like that won't make it into Wednesday's release of 1.32.0. Wait. Did I just say what I think I just said? :-)
