I have started work on integrating a web view in panel.xml so it can be used on OR consoles.
At this stage, the idea is not to integrate a full web browser but to point it at a given page to display information like a video feed, a dynamic image (e.g. consumption data updated from a server), ...
Currently the element looks like this in the panel.xml
<absolute left="80" top="58" width="640" height="240">
<web id="6" src="http://192.168.1.117/control/faststream.jpg?stream=full&fps=8.0" username="admin" password="meinsm"/>
A web tag, embedded in a positioning element. Attributes are the URL and potentially a username/password if content is protected with basic authentication.
Any comments, requirements, ideas are welcomed.
