Using DataSets in 1.8

Use DataSets to design and store tabular data so you can easily produce Layouts that will automatically update from information held in a created DataSet.
DataSets come in two parts..

  • The DataSet (Data structure and data)
  • The Display (DataSet View / Ticker / a source of data for a custom Module)

Once defined in the Library the DataSet can be reused across multiple DataSet views and Layouts!

Take a look at our handy guides which will walk you through how to simply display 'Meeting room bookings' or build an ‘Hours since last incident’ counter which show you how you can easily utilise DataSets with Xibo!
