Changing the PMF Look Using Styling and Skins

A section of the Look settings control the look and style of the user interface through different indicators, HTML style sheets, graph palettes, and WebFOCUS style sheet settings.

In coordination with these look options, a series of artist rendered skins have been included. These skins provide a stylized combination of colors, fonts, indicators, palettes, and designs that together produce a distinctive look. These skins also include coordinated WebFOCUS Business Intelligence Portal templates that are installed with PMF.

You can create new skins to follow any corporate standards without adversely affecting the operation of PMF.
