You can create new form themes using the Web forms Theme Editor. After you have created a form theme, you can use your theme in any form component (such as the Form Builder component).
Before you can create a theme, you must have the images that you want to use in your theme. You need eight images for a background. Backgrounds are not a single image; they are a series of repeated, layered images.
You can also use images for control styles, such as the Button component.
Open the Web forms Theme Editor (Start > Programs > Symantec > Workflow Designer > Tools > WebForms Theme Editor).
Click File > New.
Click Theme > Add Image, and then add an image you need to create your theme. Add all the images you need for your theme.
All the images you add appear under the Images header in the tree structure in the left pane.
Under the Border Setup tab, enter the width (in pixels) of the left, right, top, and bottom images of the theme background.
Remember that the left border images and the right border images must be the same width as the corner images. Also, the top images and the bottom images must be the same height as the corner images.
Under the Border Images tab, set which image you want to use for each section of the background.
(Optional) Under the Background tab, set the background color, page color, and background image.
Symantec recommends setting the background and the page color to white and using no background image. The background image refers to the image that fills the middle of the background.
(Optional) Under the Size tab, set the fixed size of the theme background.
Symantec recommends not using a fixed size unless the background style requires it. If you use a fixed size, users cannot resize the form during design-time.
To create a form theme control style
In the Web forms Theme Editor, click Theme > Add Standard Control Style or Add Custom Style.
Symantec recommends using only standard control styles unless the control you want to edit is not available in the standard control styles.
Under the Font tab, configure the font settings.
These settings are applied to all text that appears in this control style.
(Optional) Under the Borders tab, set the width (in pixels), style, and color for the border of the control style. You can also set the border padding, which refers to the marginal area between the border and the text.
(Optional) Under the Background tab, set the background color or image.
(Optional) Under the Paragraph tab, set the alignment for the text.
