_In K-Touch, an entrance is a user-definable macro that executes when a panel is loaded.
Entrances are commonly used to query 3rd party devices so that when a page loads, the page syncs to the current state of these devices._
- Locate Entrances
Entrances are contained inside a panel.
- Add an Entrance
- With Entrances selected, click the + button or right-click and choose Add Entrance.
- Entrance Properties
After creating an entrance, set the properties:
Name: Give the entrance a name.
Repeatable: To send the entrance macro one time when the page loads, select No. To resend the entrance macro at a constant interval, select Yes.
Repeat Every: If repeatable is Yes, set the interval value (in seconds) for how often the entrance macro is sent.
- Create the Entrance Macro
- To add device commands or actions to the entrance macro, drag them to the entrance.
