Themes Generator

Themes Generator is a feature that enables you to easily generate a CSS file that you can use to customize the look and feel of your AcuToWeb applications. The editor is WYSIWYG and so very little CSS scripting knowledge is required.

When creating a theme, you can apply styles to the different types of controls used in your applications.

Each type of control has a number of pre-defined styles. Select one of the styles to use it in your stylesheet. The other styles remain dormant in the stylesheet until one of them is selected for use. You can edit the color properties of each style using the color picker or by manually entering a Hex value.

Note: If you have any styles applied to controls using the ATW-CSS-CLASS or ATW-CSS-ID properties, these styles will be overridden by the stylesheet in effect.

When you have finished editing your theme, use the Export option ( to generate a CSS file.

Once you have exported your finished stylesheet, configure it as an available theme by adding a customize_css entry to the gateway configuration file; for example:

customize_css neon=c:\css\myNeonTheme.css

Add multiple entries, for multiple stylesheets, to create a list of available stylesheets to choose from on the Themes option on the Gateway Connection Setup screen.

If you need to edit an existing stylesheet, you can also import it into the Themes Generator, where you can edit and select existing styles, and then export it again.
