Applicable Versions: 5.50.0001 Onwards
You can configure what images are used for the splash, about and login screens with DataPA OpenAnalytics, and text that appears in the client applications with a small text file. The file should be located in the directory [InstallDir]\Common and called datapa.ini (on most machines the fully qualified pathname of the file should be C:\Program Files (x86)\DataPA\Common\datapa.ini).
The file contains information that specifies the images to be used for the three screens, and the visual attributes of any text on those and other screens. You can download a template for the file below. This template contains the following;
|# Splash screen definition|
# About Screen Definition
# Login Screen Definition
# Dashboard Designer
title=DataPA Dashboard Designer
# Excel Addin
To modify the images, simply copy your images into the same folder as the datapa.ini file and change the appropriate image reference in the text file to the name of your replacement image file. If the text on the splash or about screens no longer appears clearly, you can change the text's visual appearance using the appropriate values in the text file. All colours should be represented as a hexadecimal html RGB colour value.
NB. The excel options are available only with version 6.00.0163 and above
