Managing Workstation Settings
The Perspective Workstation application settings are unique to each Perspective Session. To access Workstation settings, click on the "three menu dots" on the My Applications window and select the Manage option. The property setting tables in the Perspective Workstation Application Settings section below shows the settings that can be applied to each session.
When you open the Manage tab and navigate through some of the screens, some of the settings will be pre-populated.
Launch Modes - Windowed and Kiosk
Perspective Workstation has built-in features to run either Windowed mode or in full screen Kiosk mode eliminating any distractions from the underlying operating system.
Tab/Window Links has three settings to select choose from that can either allow users to open links in a web browser, in a window, or block users from accessing the operating system.
Workstation supports launching across multiple monitors. A single application configured in Perspective Workstation can open multiple application windows (operating system windows). Each page is represented on a separate operating system window with each monitor representing a different Perspective page. Users can specify which pages to appear on each monitor on the Page Configuration window.
When configuring multi-monitor settings, Workstation automatically detects and shows you how many monitors are available on the Page Configuration page. The page configuration settings sets the page(s) that the session will start on. Users mount which page they want for each display. If the Page field is empty, nothing will appear. If a Page field contains a URL, a page will be mounted. A Primary display indicates where you will sign in and identify what window will present you with the sign-in dialog box. There is an Identify Display setting that you can set to provide an overlay with what display you are looking at to help you with your configuration.
Note: The default Page Configuration when adding an application is "/" meaning that we load the default page as configured in the Designer when creating a Page Configuration. For more information refer to Page Configuration.
Perspective Component Actions and Scripts
Perspective resources have access to some Workstation only features, allowing you to develop a project that has some built-in Workstation controls.
The Component Events and Actions page highlights the Workstation Component Action, allowing you to switch the mode of a running Workstation Application.
The system.perspective.workstation leads to various system functions that further allow you to manipulate a running Workstation Application.
