Creating a Theme

Creating a Theme

When a guide runs, the default background colors, button styles, and other style elements are defined in HTML/CSS format in files deployed to the Process Server and made available to Guide Designer. You can modify the default theme or create new themes. In Guide Designer, the contributed themes are listed in the
Settings
dialog.
To create and deploy your own theme
:
  1. View a running or simulated guide to see the default look and feel.
  2. In the guide designer, open the
    Settings
    dialog to see the default runtime and optional preview themes.
    Note that when you are trying out different themes at the guide level, you do not have to save the guide to see the new theme in action. Just start a simulation by clicking the
    Simulate
    button.
  3. For ideas on what to add to a theme, view the Guide Designer Customization Starter orchestration project, which contains themes files.
  4. Create your theme HTML/CSS files.
  5. Create a themes.xml deployment descriptor. The default descriptor is in the Process Server catalog.
    The themes.xml schema is
    avosThemeDiscovery.xsd
    ., which is located in the
    com.activevos.socrates.repository.services\schema
    Process Developer plugin. Refer to the documentation within the schema for hints on using images and descriptions.
  6. Deploy the theme files and descriptor to the server as a deployment contribution. Refer to
    Creating and Deploying a Business Process Archive Contribution
    elsewhere in this help.
