Programmer Preview window, change Background colour

Quite some times we hear the question if it is possible to change the background colour in the Preview window. It is – however a few manual steps are required.

Here is a short guide:

  • Edit the file PRGDefault.xml in “C:\Program Files (x86)\ecue\Programmer V7.0\Skins” (or wherever you installed the Programmer).
    You need Administrator rights to do this.
  • Search for “preview“, you’ll find two rows. “PreviewBackground” defines the outer color and “PreviewBackgroundClear” defines the inner color of the background.
  • Restart Programmer after changing the file!

Hope that helps,
