[dotLX] Creating a New Project [Customisation Options]
When creating a new project in Moxo QuickWeb Studio, you have the ability to set certain options for your application. These customisation options are explained in detail, here on this page.
App URL: The App URL textbox field is responsible for customising the URL that the application will target. This URL should be the destination of the web-application that you wish to turn into a Windows application.
Window Height: The height of the window that will open (measured in pixels). For example, if your web app is specifically designed to be viewed like a mobile app, you would want the window height to reflect that of a mobile phone, tall and skinny. You might have the height set to 1600 and the width of the window to 800, for example.
Window Width: The width of the window that will open (measured in pixels). For example, if your web app is specifically designed to be viewed in widescreen, you may want to ensure that the window is 1600 pixels wide and 900 pixels high, for widescreen.
Include a "Back" Button: When checked, the application will generate with a user interface button that allows the user to navigate back, to a previous page. The user can still use a right click menu to navigate backward, even if this is disabled.
Include a "Forward" Button: When checked, the application will generate with a user interface button that allows the user to navigate forward, in the event that they have navigated to a previous page and wish to return. The user can still use a right click menu to navigate forward, even if this is disabled.
Include a "Refresh" Button: When checked, the application will generate with a user interface button that allows the user to refresh the current page being displayed in the application. The user can still use a right click menu to refresh the page, even if this is disabled.
There is no visible default value for these options, however, if the user does attempt to create an application leaving these fields blank, the following values will be applied automatically:
|Include a Back Button
|Include a Forward Button
|Include a Refresh Button
Moxo QuickWeb Studio for dotLX allows the user to select a custom icon that will be used in the title bar of the application and in the Windows taskbar. By default, if the user does not supply an icon it will use the Moxo default. Pictured below, is a workflow where the user has started with the default icon, clicked browse, and replaced it with a ChatGPT icon.
The file must be an ICO file. If the user wants to supply a PNG image, they must first convert the image to an ICO file using a conversion tool like CloudConvert. Simply changing the file extension will not suffice. As of version 230303, the application will warn the user when it detects an ICO file with a different MIME type.
