  • Company Event name tags in less than three hours, part 4, Story Teller

    Hi again,
    This will be the fourth and last part of this story, and I will go through the Story Teller design of the Label project. After a question on IT-Toolbox about if it is possible to add images from web locations I decided to add a logotype to the project that is fetched using a URL.
    The idea in this project is to use the Story Teller feature to have a story (all the name tags) flow between several Story frames, one per name tag.

    This is the third part of this series, and here I will walk through the Excel XML data file and the XMLIn event used in this project. The fact that it was decided to use StoryTeller instead of PageOut, made the configuration of the XMLIn much simpler.

    A couple of weeks ago, a colleague of mine, we can call her Karin, got a similar question to the one I described in part 1 of this series. It wasn’t as spectacular as the story in part 1, no CEO rushing through the room, but the need was similar. We had an Excel sheet containing rows of information and we needed to create labels with barcodes. So we created a solution for this and since I thought it had some nice features I thought it would become a good article for this forum. Note that the StreamServe solution I will show you here is written only for this article.
    So our main goal is to as quickly as possible create name tags for a customer event, using the content of an Excel spread sheet. I have therefore cut some corners and made a quick and dirty solution.

    One morning your CEO enters the room and clearly states his presence.
    He walks right through the open-plan, aiming right at you. Half way there, still walking, he says in a clear voice, while everyone else in the room quietly looks at the scenery.
    - Hey you, Mr. Smith, aren't you printing Invoices all day long, fixing the design and everything?
    - This afternoon we will have two hundred customer representatives over for this big event, and I need name tags for them to wear. Here's an Excel sheet with all the names and companies. Have them ready by noon.
    He throws over a USB memory stick, and just as quickly as he came, he vanishes out the door.
