Can one change/suppress the Pega Robotic Process Icons & Splash screen
Want/Need to brand the RDA bots being deployed to employee desktops. As part of this we want to use a custom ICO and project title.. I understand how to assign the ICO to various forms, but want/need to know:
1) Can I change/suppress the Pega icon in the toolbar, and/or replace the current Pega ICO?
2) As the load of the robot project happens there is a Pega splash screen. Can this be swapped out, hidden or override with a custom splash screen...
3) any other customization spots I may have forgotten.
You can customize all of this by editing the various config files. To make this brief and suitable for a quick post, I'll detail the specific files and keys for each and allow you to ask any follow-up questions as needed as each is pretty self-explanatory. You'll want to push these changes to these configuration files before the initial launch as the RuntimeConfig.xml is generally read from the user profile after the initial launch. If changing after a wide, release, you'll need to push to each user's directory. This is made easier via the Management Console, but that is decsribed elsewhere in much more detail.
RuntimeConfig.xml - Located by default in %AppData%\OpenSpan
OpenSpan.Runtime.exe.config - Located in the installation directory
1. To change the tray icon (you may also hide it entirely), edit the RuntimeConfig.xml. The appropriate keys are below.
<add key="TrayIconFileName" value="" />
<add key="ShowSystemTrayIcon" value="true" />
2. The splash screen can be customized by editing the OpenSpan.Runtime.exe.config file located in the installation directory. The relevant section is below.
<enabled value="true" />
<!-- Custom splash screen required parameters -->
<!-- Image could either be jpg, gif, bmp or png, and is scaled to 420x320 -->
<!-- We look for file name w/o path in: application, user documents and pictures folder -->
<fileName value="" />
<productName value="" />
<!-- Custom splash screen optional parameters -->
<productVersion value="" />
<productCoordinate value="0, 0" />
<status value="true" />
<statusText value="" />
3. These are the main ones for changing the look and feel of you project especially if you have changed the icons on your windows forms.
