After importing the device follow the steps below for best results:

  1. Change category to ‘Video Processing’
  2. Click and drag ‘User Status’ state to UI
  3. Adjust properties of the ‘List Box’
    • Change ‘Item Type’ from Text/Text to Text/Image
    • Change any additional property including size, font, font size etc to match the rest of the UI
    • Change ‘Text’ field to something more specific to the widget, example User Status
  4. Double Click on the newly created ‘List Box’
  5. Drag ‘Toggle Status’ from Kramer VIA device to the command section
  6. Within event section, add a conditional
  7. Drag the ‘User Status’ state to the newly created IF statement
    • In the ‘Operator’ field select ‘=’
    • In the ‘User Status’ field select Presenting or Not Presenting
  8. Add an ‘Update Property’ to the IF statement
    • The default property that will appear is ‘Update Property: List items on the widget to’ with a blank image area
  9. Drag an image that you want to represent the State that you chose in the previous step to the blank image area
    • This image will indicate the Presenting/Not Presenting state of any user
  10. Click on the ‘+ Condition’ button to the right of the IF statement
  11. Add an ELSEIF
  12. Drag the ‘User Status’ state from the device to the ELSEIF field
    • In the ‘Operator’ field select ‘=’
    • In the ‘User Status’ field select Presenting or Not Presenting (choose the opposite option then what was previously selected in the IF statement)
  13. Add an update property to the ELSEIF statement
  14. Drag image to the ‘Update Property’ blank space
    • This image will indicate the Presenting/Not presenting state of any user

Note There are more User Status results than Presenting and Not Presenting. You can repeat the ELSEIF steps for each Status, or you can add an ELSE. The image below shows the use of ELSE to reset the image to a default state.

  4. Click ‘Create’
  5. Drag the device to the ‘Drop Compatible Device Here’ section of the center pane
