Changing the Basic Colors

You can change the colors for the background, for text, and for links — basic links, visited links, and active links. Changes in the appearance of the myAccess Links page are controlled by the camconfig.properties file.

Note Before editing the properties file, we recommend that you first make a back-up copy for safekeeping.
To change the basic colors
  1. Open the text file camconfig.properties, located in the directory MCS install root/components/PresentationBuilder/camconfig/.

    You can open this file using any standard text editor.

  2. Change the values of the following variables:
    BGCOLOR            TEXT
    LINK VLINK
    ALINK
    Caution Change only the values of the variables to the right of the equal sign. Changing the names of the variables may produce undesirable results or cause all settings to revert to standard Attachmate defaults.

    Use only hexadecimal color values. For more information on these variables, refer to Additional myAccess Links Properties.

  3. Save and close the camconfig.properties file.
