Customizing SCMS3 - Part2


In this article we will discuss the possibilities to change the design and the GUI of the SCMS3 applications and the launcher.

1. Changing graphics

Most of the icons and graphics are located in two files: applicationAssets.fla and icons.fla The graphics will be loaded dynamically while the application starts.

See here two screen shots of this files:


As you see it is easy to change everything you want. Be careful if you change the size of the items - maybe there will be occur some wired things or the layout is out of order. Make a copy of the file before editing so you can switch back or lookup some things as size or position. Some icons are located in the applications fla files. Have a look to the libraries of: filemanager.fla texteditor.fla and csseditor.fla All files are seperated in different folders for each application. It will be easy to find the right files.

2. Changing buttons labels and tooltips

This will be a little more work. Labels are located in different files and SCMS3 is standardly written in English. Take this hints to get started. The application titles are located in the applist xml's as attribute for the application entry. Tooltips of buttons are located in the as files of the application, i.e. - for the filemanger - for the rich text editor - for the text editor Tooltip texts for the filemanagers file descriptions and detailled information are located in the php files. Do not hesitate to ask for particular information about the location of such things: please use only the support forum.
