Additionaly Placeholder can be used for the HTML page generator. Please see below.

What does the placeholder stand for?

&DocumentName& or &CameraName&

Name of the current configuration document


The current time. See the description of TIME_PLACEHOLDER below.


The number of images in the list


The path where the images are saved to.


The name of the current image


The number of changes registered for this image


The time when this image was saved. See the description of TIME_PLACEHOLDER below.

&IPAddress& Add  the current IP address.
&ExtFile:FILENAME& Add the contents of the file FILENAME. (Usefully to add contents from another program.)

A TIME_PLACEHOLDER can include one or more of the following strings:











For instance the message string in your "Send Message" configuration is the following:

"Camera "&CameraName&" detected a motion on &ImageTime%d.%m.%y at %H:%M&. The image was saved on &ImagePathName&&ImageName&.

The receiver will get the following message:

"Camera "Corridor" detected an motion on 17.08.1999 at 07:57. The image was saved on C:\ Corridor1\SV 99-08-17 07-57-22.jpg"

Additionaly Placeholder can be used in the HTML source file to describe lists of images.

With <!TableEntryStart Max = x Type=SV > you start a new list where x is the maximum number of image entries to include and only images of the type SV (supervision) will be included. The type can also be TS for time scheduled images.

With <!TableEntryEnd> you need to mark the end of the list.


<!TableEntryStart Max = 20 Type=SV >

<A href="&ImageName&">&ImageName& </A><!TableEntryEnd>

This code adds a list of links to a maximum of 20 SV images last saved in your HTML page.
