Adding color to your kiosks

Colors
The possibility to include web content in any of the 5 areas on the screen allows you to be as creative as you want with your Internet kiosks or information terminals.

Since the web content is kept behind other objects such as the title for the top area or buttons for the side and bottom areas, web content can be used to display a simple background.

For example, if you want to add a yellow backgroung to the top area, create an html file stored locally on the drive or on a web server with the following code:

1
<body bgcolor="yellow"></body>

I created such a file and  uploaded it as http://ecrisper.com/yellow.htm. If you specify this value for webview URL, it will display a yellow background.
Of course “yellow” can be replaced by any color (most likely an Hex value).

For an easy way to get the Hex value for a color, go to http://www.ficml.org/jemimap/style/color/wheel.html

When you add the URL value for the webview, one quick way to see the result right away is to uncheck then re-check the Display webview checkbox.
