Hello and good day to you! I'm looking for an application under Windows that is capable of showing fullscreen letter-numerical content on the second display of dual-monitor PC, while being command from the first one. For example I'm at the office in front of the first monitor and the second one is on my store's shop window and shows what is ordered from inside. Thanks!
is something like this, but the 7-seg display must be fullscreen on monitor N2 and separated from the input window on monitor N1. With other words, monitor N2 must act like fullscreen 7-seg (or matrix, does not matter) display and show the numbers entered on the input line on monitor N1 in real time. People, watching N2 must see only a fullscreen display with 7-seg or matrix numbers, entered from N1, nothing else. Thanks!
Monitors are 2-3 meters away each other, the videocard has two DVI ports.
So if the person using the computer types the symbols into a field/box being shown on monitor N1 the symbols are then shown in a second window, full screen, on monitor N2.
May be doable via some Kiosk software. The computer and monitor N1 to control what is to be shown via a window extended to monitor N2.
Did some research but did not note any kiosk applications actually doing that: e.g., some form of "live display". Seems overly complicating things.
I believe that you can probably create the same effect via Excel without too much effort.
(Or Visual Basic, Access, Python, any programming language. Should not be difficult if you have anyone with a reasonable amount of programming experience.)
Create a source spreadsheet with a cell or cells for data entry and a second linked Excel target spreadsheet (or page even) for display.
Open both spreadsheets, enlarge the target spreadsheet to full screen size and drag over to extended monitor N2 for fullscreen display.
Leave the source spreadsheet displayed but small on monitor N1.
Enter the symbols into the source spreadsheet using whatever fonts, sizes, colors, and emphasis you wish.
The target spreadsheet being linked would reference the source spreadsheet cell contents and display them accordingly. However you can change the fonts, sizes, colors, and emphasis and make the contents different for display purposes.
Try the concept out. Experiment some. Gives you full control over everything and you will not be dependent on some 3rd party. And free to make changes however you wish or require.
Thank you very much for your efforts to help, but I don't think linked Excel sheets to help in my case. At least the tool bars of the Excel window and the window itself are not allowed to manifest here. The screen N2 must look like this:
only with more numbers. This is just an example of how it must be, it can be with different colors or backgrounds, but the main line is that. I think I got other solution which involves other technical methods, different from using software. One more time, thank you very much for the help!
