Script Toolkits provide your Scala platform with additional functionality. The toolkits consist of script “building blocks” that you can program yourself or with the help of a technical resource. The “building blocks” allow you to build sophisticated applications without having to start from scratch. The Script Toolkits are provided “as-is” and may require further customization to meet your needs. If you need help configuring one of these Script Toolkits, please contact your authorized Scala Certified Partner for a quote.
How do I get these?
Ask your Scala Certified Partner to download them for you! (You’ll need to be on ‘Scala Advantage’ to have access to these items. If you’re not currently up to date, your Scala Certified Partner will be happy to provide you with a quote)
Enhanced RSS Script Toolkit – A series of templates that allow you to easily add an RSS feed to a crawl, sidebar, or main area of your screen. Simply load these scripts into Designer to make whatever cosmetic changes you desire (fonts, color schemes, etc.), and publish this to your Content Manager. Then login to your Content Manager and create a new message. Select the RSS Template, enter your URL, select a variety of options and save. It’s that easy!
Scala Browser Script Toolkit – Two scripts are included with this Script Toolkit.
Scala Web Browser – A full screen web browser with parameters for URL timeout whether the navigation bar is hidden or not.
Web Snapshot – Captures a snapshot of a URL for display in a playlist as a PNG file.
PDF Print Script Toolkit – This is an EXE program that allows you to print PDFs from your application. This works best with older versions of Acrobat Reader such as 5.X and 6.X.
National Weather Service Script Toolkit – The US Government maintains a website of regional weather stats in the United States. Access to this information is free of charge, but not as detailed as you might get from a “paid” service with forecast information. This contains a series of templates for displaying the current weather conditions by zip code either as a crawl, sidebar or main area.
CSV Schedule Script Toolkit – Using this Script Toolkit with a “Comma Separated Value” (CSV) file from Excel or another program, you can easily import a meeting or event schedule into Scala and display it with a pleasing graphical design. The fields supported here are name of event, name of group, start time, start date, stop time, stop date, and location name.
Useful Templates – Many of the above Script Toolkits use a similar style for display information in the crawl, sidebar, or main area. This collection of templates is designed with the same look and feel, and is easily added to a Content Manager playlist. Five different templates are included – A basic message template, a video and picture template, a time & date template, a TV Tuner template (TV Tuner hardware and TV Tuner EXtension Module are sold separately), and a Windows Media Streaming Video template.
