Hi all,

I'm just after a nice way to implement a projector warm-up/cool-down message on screen for a commercial install?

I was thinking along the lines of a hidden panel using the timeout function, with the panel being called when the projector on/off command is executed and appearing in front of other page object to stop the user clicking anything until the projector has warmed up of cooled down - basically just to stop the projector getting out of sync with commands if executed by the user in quick succession.

Can anyone please comment on the above and let me know if any better/more bulletproof options for this? Being for a commercial install I want it to be as rock-solid as possible.

Cheers

Got this working nicely using popups with specified timeouts for anyone interested.
