7.26. Branding the IDERI note client¶
By default, the IDERI note client shows the logo of IDERI GmbH on each message displayed on the client in the lower left corner of the message window. If the new messaging look of the IDERI note client version 2.2 is configured, the IDERI logo looks like in figure 7.89.
If the old client look as of IDERI note client version 2.0 is configured, or if messages are too large to be displayed in the messenger user interface look and the user clicks the “Read entire message...” link on the message window, the IDERI logo can be seen in the lower left corner of the dialogbox-like message window. The IDERI logo on these message windows looks like in figure 7.90.
However, it is easily possible for you to replace both logos with your own logo (“Branding”). All you have to do is replace the two files logonew.png (for the messenger-like look) and logoold.png (for the dialogbox-like look), both of which reside with a size of 0 bytes in the IDERI note client installation directory, with your own logo files. You should use PNG files for this that are about the same size as the original IDERI logo. It might require a certain amount of experimentation until you get a pleasant look for your own logos on the IDERI note message windows but note that you can use the transparency feature of the PNG file format to your advantage. Also note that the IDERI note administrative tools package comes with the IDERI note client customization wizard. This wizard allows you to specify two arbitrarily named files for these two logo files and will create a cab file that you can use with your transform to automatically deploy your logo files of choice with the IDERI note client package. For further details please consult the online help page of the client customization wizard’s logo specification page.
