Display Current Date / Time / Temp on matrix
« on: March 22, 2018, 10:23:35 PM »
I have a matrix setup that I would like to rotate at least the current date and time, Temp would be a bonus, in with my other matrix sequences.   I have found countdown clocks and searched google and have found nothing.  Any help would be great.


Thank you

Xscheduler appears to have what you need. you will have to retrieve the date and time and temp from somewhere but that is "relatively easy". google how.
see https://github.com/smeighan/xLights/blob/master/xSchedule/API%20Documentation.txt
for the api you can use to do text on predefined matrices.
