Customizing the Look of the GUI

The institutional effectiveness graphical user interface (GUI) doesn't have to look like the out-of-the-box IGOR setup. You can change the background color, font, and font color. The /cgi-bin/config/ file now includes lines like these:

# Set Background Color
# use C-type hex notation, like 0xFF0000 for red (0 = zero)
$IEbgcolor = '0xECE9D8';
# set font = Times New Roman, Arial, Courier
$IEfont = "Arial";
# set color of text
$IEtextcolor = '0x666666';

You can try other fonts than the ones listed, but results may vary according to what is loaded on the client machines.
