This is the documentation the latest work-in-progress version of MPF!

This is the documentation for MPF 0.57, which is the “dev” (next) release of MPF that is a work-in-progress. This is probably ok, and means you’ll be on the latest, cutting-edge version of MPF.

However, if you want a more stable version, select the v:stable version from the lower-left corner of this page. You can always update to the latest at any time.


MPF-MC Event

The display target called (name) is now ready and available to show slides. This event is useful with display widgets where you want to add a display to an existing slide which shows some content, but you need to make sure the display exists before showing a slide. So if you have a display called “overlay”, then you can add it to a slide however you want, and when it’s added, the event “display_overlay_ready” will be posted, and then you can use that event in your slide_player to trigger the first slide you want to show. Note that this event is posted by MPF-MC and will not exist on the MPF side. So you can use this event for slide_player, widget_player, etc., but not to start shows or other things controlled by MPF.

This event does not have any keyword arguments
