Changing the Font Color on the Navigation Pane Tabs in WebWorks Help

The tabs in the navigation pane all share the same font and text style properties. These style properties are specified in the wwhelp_settings.xml file.

To change the font color on all the tabs in the navigation pane

  1. Identify the theme in use for your WebWorks Help target that you want to modify. For more information, see “Selecting a Theme” on page 190.

  2. In Windows Explorer, open your project folder. For more information about override files and locations, see “Understanding Stationery, Projects, and Overrides” on page 327.

  3. If you want to override the tab font color for 'all WebWorks Help targets, create the Formats\WebWorks Help 5.0\Skins\theme folder in your projectname folder, where theme is the name of the WebWorks Help theme you want to override, such as Lobby_Blue, and projectname is the name of your ePublisher project. If the theme name is two words, include an underscore instead of a space between the words.

  4. If you want to override the tab font color for one WebWorks Help 'target, create the Targets\WebWorks Help 5.0\Skins\theme folder in your projectname folder, where theme is the name of the WebWorks Help theme you want to override, such as Lobby_Blue, and projectname is the name of your ePublisher project. If the theme name is two words, include an underscore instead of a space between the words.

  5. Copy the wwhelp_settings.xml file from the following folder to the theme override folder you created within your project folder:

Program Files\WebWorks\ePublisher Pro\Formats\WebWorks Help 5.0\ Skins\theme

  1. Open the wwhelp_settings.xml file you copied to your project override folder.

  2. Find the following block of code:

<Tabs>
  <DefaultColors foreground="#666666" />
  <SelectedColors foreground="#FFFFFF" />
</Tabs>

  1. If you want to change the color of the text on the 'unselected' tabs, replace #666666 with the RGB color value you want to use for the text on those tabs.

  2. If you want to change the color of the text on the 'selected' tab, replace #FFFFFF with the RGB color value you want to use for the text on that tab.

  3. Save and close the wwhelp_settings.xml file.

  4. Regenerate your project to review the changes.
