Wyn Enterprise offers a wide range of options to customize the overall appearance of the dashboard. Use dashboard's Document Settings to change the appearance, layout, and other global settings to create a visually rich dashboard.
In this video, we will show you how to customize built-in themes and color palettes in Wyn Enterprise.
Wyn Dashboards provide a variety of predefined themes that you can apply to enhance the look and feel of your dashboard without spending time in formatting. Themes control color palette, fonts, and other important elements for a dashboard. By default, you use the Casual theme in Wyn Dashboards, which consists of white background, Arial font, and black font color. You can specify the theme and background color of the dashboard under the Document Appearance section in Document Settings.
You may want to customize the layout of the dashboard to organize and display the scenarios the way you want. To achieve this, you can either move or resize the scenarios in the design area and specify the height and width of the document page. You can also select from some pre-defined templates or sizes from a dropdown while going for a Fixed Size layout for the dashboard in addition to the custom settings under the Layout settings as shown below.
When setting the layout, you can set the Self-adaptive Font Size property to True, then the font size in the visual component adapts to the size displayed by the component during preview and runtime. By default, the value for this property is set to No.
You can set the Canvas Size to Auto or Fixed Size. When fixed size is selected then you can select the screen from 8 pre-defined screen templates as listed below:
Large Screen 23(57602160)
Large Screen 24(76802160)
Large Screen 34(76803240)
When you select Custom, then the default page width and height are displayed in Canvas Width and Canvas Height properties.
You can set the screen fit ability using the Screen Fit Type property. It has the following options: Fit to size, Fit to screen, Fit to width, Fit to Height, and No Fit. No Fit is not available for the Auto canvas option.
Note: If the chart size position exceeds the default value, Page Width and Page Height display the current page size.
Color palette plays an important role when designing an effective dashboard. Choosing the correct color palette can help the user to focus attention on the key indicators in the dashboard. You can customize the dashboard using Theme, Standard, and Custom color palettes. When creating a custom color palette in Wyn Dashboards, three modes are available: Custom Color, Gradient Series, and Gradient Color. You can create a new custom palette in any mode. The color palette affects all the individual scenarios in the dashboard. You can choose a color palette under the Global Settings section in the Document Settings.
