Create a booth

Last Updated: Aug 24, 2021

With the booth management function provided by MCDP, you can customize and manage the booths to effectively control the traffic. Before delivering an advertisement, create a booth in advance, specify the client page, position, type, material type, and height of the booth as needed, so that when you create a marketing campaign, you can directly select the booth and add the corresponding advertisement content or elements. Each created booth can be reused in different advertisement deliveries to facilitate marketing campaigns.

According to the different configuration modes, booths can be divided into the following three categories:

  • Dynamic booth

    After you added the MCDP SDK to the client, directly configure all the booth properties on the console, including the ID, page, display style, position, material, and height of the booth, without any operation on the client.

    Dynamic booths do not support configuring a booth in the center position.

  • Client preset booth

    After you added the MCDP SDK to the client, preset some of the booth properties on the client by coding (including the ID, page, position, and height of the booth), then create a booth on the console, and enter the booth parameters preset on the client. When the information configured on the console does not match the information configured on the client, the actual booth information on the client shall prevail.

    • Applicable scenario: The client configuration mode is available to support booth positions that are not supported by the dynamic configuration mode (for example, the center position).
    • Recommended mode: For ease of adjustment, the ID, page, and position of the booth are preset on the client, and all other booth properties are configured on the console.
  • Splash booth

    A special preset booth. Only one splash booth can be created in an App, and by default, the splash booth ID is STARTPAGE and cannot be modified.

Take the search box as an example, on the console, you can define the content of the copy in the search box, but you cannot set the position, width, or height of the search box, these properties need to be configured through the client.
  • In Android client, the top floating layer or the top of the page must contain the ViewGroup control with tag h5_titlebar, or the layout must contain the AUTitleBar control from the antui-build component; the head/bottom of the list must contain the ListView control.
