Exago Theme Maker

Many components in Exago can be themed and styled. Exago provides a Theme Maker that can create component themes for any color palette. Matching themes can be created for ExpressViews (pre-v2021.1), Express Reports, Charts, GeoCharts, and CrossTabs. The Theme Maker is a JavaScript application that runs in a web browser. 


The Theme Maker creates themes for pre-v2021.1 ExpressView. To create a theme for an ExpressView in later versions, refer to the Create a Custom ExpressView Theme (v2021.1+) article.

Launch the Exago Theme Maker

Select which Exago components to create themes for. By default, all available components are selected. Deselect the check box for each component you do not want to create themes for.
