[Feature Request] Load on Detect

Request: Allow wallpaper loading to begin based on an event, such as detection of a drive.

Reason: In cases such as where wallpapers are stored on encrypted drives, the first load fails and results in a white screen as the user does not have a chance to decrypt the drive first. If we could set wallpaper loading/rotation to begin based on an event at startup it would save the need for manual intervention.

Do the users usually mount the drive shortly after first boot? If so, you could setup a "DisplayFusion Starts" Trigger rule (Settings > Triggers) that has a 5 or 10 minute wait, then loads the Wallpaper Profile.

Keith - thank you, that got me about 90% of the way to where I'd like to be.

Currently - when logging in the correct wallpaper set is used, then nearly immediately disappears and is replaced with a black screen, then loaded correctly again several minutes later as the trigger kicks in.

Is there any way to cause Display Fusion to just not load a new wallpaper at all if it can't find or open the files and stick with the temporary file its already created?

There isn't at the moment, no, but I will add that to our list

Excellent - thank you. Looking forward to it then, and then the reload should suffice in the meantime.

If this loading is happening when you login to Windows then you could just set DisplayFusion to not load on login and create a script to run on login that handles running DisplayFusion manually after the drive is available.

If DisplayFusion doesn't load it's not going to configure icons/taskbar for the other two monitors correctly on login.
