External Screen API: Requirements

To run successfully, this code requires the following:

Kiosk Pro Enterprise, version 7.8 or later

While the JavaScript included in this code sample is compatible with earlier versions of Kiosk Pro, those versions require a different 'kiosk_functions.js' file to access this functionality.

For live projects, we highly recommend hosting the 'kiosk_functions.js' file with your own files, whether they are placed on a server or stored locally on the iPad, and checking the app's change logs before updating. The 'kiosk_functions.js' file referenced in the sample may be updated or moved without warning - if you are referencing this file directly, this would prevent your kiosks from working correctly.

To run the demo on earlier versions of the app, generate the 'kiosk_functions.js' for that version from the settings menu under 'JavaScript API > Generate API Functions File'. Transfer the file from the device using iTunes so you can place it where you need it, then change the reference in the sample code to point at the file.

Connection to an External Monitor

iOS device must be connected to an external monitor, either through AirPlay over a local WiFi network or directly through Apple's digital AV adapters (available for both 30-pin and Lightning connections).

For more information about setting up AirPlay for your device, visit this page. For more information about using Apple's digital AV adapters, visit this page.
