Seating Chart display blinds
« on: May 14, 2022, 05:19:36 AM »
Is there a way of adding the current blinds to the seating chart?
Often whilst breaking a table I will lock the screen so players know where to sit but then the blinds are not visible.
Can the seating chart screen be tweaked to add the blinds at the top so players can see a small version of the blinds?

I have searched the forums but can't seem to find if anyone has requested this previously or mentioned how to do this.

Unfortunately not at this time.  The built-in screens don't have the ability to display layout tokens.  There is a <seatingChart> layout token which you could add to your layout.  It doesn't look quite like the Seating Chart screen, but it could suffice.  You could create an additional screen that has the clock, blinds, and seating chart on it (using the <seatingChart> token), and whatever else you want, and display that to your players during a table break down.  As an example, you could name this screen something like "_tablebreak", using an underscore as the first letter to ensure the screen is the first screen in your screen list (screens are ordered alphabetically on the Layout tab).  This has the effect of making it screen number 1.  You don't include this screen in your screen sets, so it doesn't get displayed at any time automatically.  When you break down a table, just press the 1 key to display the first screen and automatically lock the screen.  Now your players see the seating chart as well as the blinds, clock, etc.  Once the break down is complete, press Ctrl+U to unlock the screen.
