Customizing Web Stations
To access the customization view of a Web Station, use the URL below:
where <server> is the name of a computer where a your web server is installed, <station> is the name of the Web Station, and WinAuth is the Windows authentication parameter.
The customization view is a page with an <iframe> element that opens an embedded version of the corresponding Web Station.
The <iframe> element opens only the workspace of the Web Station, without the header and the footer. The layout of the page can be changed to comply with your company's design guidelines. The page can be additionally customized to include action buttons that will control the contents of <iframe> and web links.
Changing the logo, header, and footer
To change the logo, replace the logo.png file in the customContent directory and, if needed, configure its display in the custom.css file.
Note: You can also edit the page layout by making changes to Index.cshtml.
Changing links to your company website and other resources
You can add links to third-party resources into Index.cshtml.
Changing the Web Station's icon to be shown in the browser window
To change the icon of the Web Station, replace the icon.ico file.
Note: If required, modify the icon parameters and the path to the icon in Index.cshtml.
Changing the name of the page to be shown in the browser window
The name of the page can be set in the <title> tag in the Index.cshtml file.
Hiding the drop-down list of languages
To hide the list of languages, remove the corresponding element from Index.cshtml or hide it by modifying the corresponding style in custom.css.
Note: To set a default language, use the FCUserLang cookie file, where a user interface language can be specified using a standard abbreviation like "en," "ru," etc.
Opening a Web Station
To open a desired Web Station in <iframe>, call one of the following two methods in the onLoad() function in the custom.js file.
- To open the Web Verification Station, call the verify() method.
- To open the Web Scanning Station, call the scan() method.
These methods can also be called from page elements, so as to switch between Web Stations interactively.
Changing the session lifetime
To set the lifetime of an user session, modify the values of the following keys in the web.config file of the corresponding Web Station:
- Set SessionRefreshInterval to 1000.
- Set SessionInactiveLifetimeInMinutes to the preferred time in minutes.
If the user remains inactive for the specified period of time, he/she will be logged out and redirected to the login page.
Since the user page uses embedded versions of Web Stations, you can also use the API messages described in Integrating Web Stations into third-party systems.
