Still having to keep a tally of how many times you've clicked a button? This feature might be able to remove the need for pen and paper. With button counters, you can enable the option to show how many times a button has been pressed in the upper right hand corner of the button. This count can be reset as necessary in the settings menu.

Answer/Steps

  1. To enable the Button Counter, click the Display Studio Hub to open the Main Menu.
  2. Then, select the Properties submenu. Click Settings to open the Display Studio Properties dialog box.

Note: This button click count is shared across workstations.  The view of the button count does not need to be enabled on every workstation for this to work.
