Application Personalization

Applications developed with XAF look similar because in most cases, the same sets of built-in UI templates, controls themes and images are used. This topic describes how you can personalize the following aspects of your application:

Expanded Application Logo and Info

Application logo and info are displayed in the About window of a WinForms application, and at the top-left and bottom-right corners of an ASP.NET application's main page.

The logo image and info texts are specified in the Model Editor using properties of the Application root node. For details, refer to the How to: Change an Application Logo and Info topic.

Expanded Application Icon

In WinForms XAF applications, the application icon is set in the standard manner used in any .NET WinForms application - via the Icon property within the Application page of the Project Designer (see How to: Specify an Application Icon). This icon is displayed for the compiled application at the top-left corner of the form, in Windows Explorer and in the Windows taskbar. By default, the ExpressApp.ico icon located in the WinForms application project folder is used.

Expanded Splash Screen

WinForms applications display the following Splash Screen on startup:

If the Security System with the Logon Form are enabled, the Overlay Form is shown.

You can customize the startup behavior as described in the Splash Forms and ModuleBase.GetStartupActions articles.
