Voting system

Postby videodsh » Fri Oct 20, 2017 4:23 pm

Hey ,

my challenge:
I am planning a show, where the audience will have a voting system. The result should influence the content on my projector.
The voting system will end up in an Excel sheet.
the results of every vote will be written in a new line in the excel sheet.
so what i basically need is a button to read out the "next " line of my XLS worksheet after the audience has finished voting
after that, the read out values move an image i.e. on the y Axis to have somtehing like a graph.
Does anyone have an idea how to realize that, or has ever done that?
first thing I noticed, that the Read-Excel Node will not read a value until the excel file has been saved.

I will be very grateful for any suggestion.

I would do that with a Listview and if you also need to save the list for viewing it in Excel then I would save it as a Csv file.
