Hi,

 

I maybe slightly off topic here but you may like the darker theme we ship with NX 11. To enable it go to Preferences / User Interface / Choose Theme on the left / Choose Light Gray on the right.

Default:

I hope you are not staring at an NX session without a part open for a long time :-). 

I stopped editing ugii_env_file 10 years ago. I cannot help you with that.

 

Regards, **bleep**

Hi **bleep**,

gray theme is not reccomended.

Usually I uso what Siemens reccomend.

Any way, changing theme doesn't change the background on startup.

It's clear I don't start NX session without a part open for a long time, but I would like to understand if there are new setting that had changed NX.

Thank you...

The No Part background is controlled by this file.

 

NX11/ugtips/background/html/background.html

 

I think in your NX 10 version someone overwrote the default installed files with plain background. I was looking for someway to control where this file is called from, an envirorment variable or customer default and I cannot find it right now. I know at sometime in the past it was able to change it.

 

Does anyone know how to control the location of the No Part background html files?

 

Thanks,

Scott

We have UGII_BACKGROUND_URL set to the HTML file to show.

At our place we host our environment variables on the network and everyone's ugii_env.dat files point to that file. Then, in our network-hosted environment file "company-name.dat" we have a line that says the following:

 

UGII_BACKGROUND_URL="\\servername\ugii\NX11\Settings\Background\background.html"

 

That directory has the html file in question, as well as our own background image, etc. Now, any time we launch NX it shows our custom background when no part is loaded.

I've attached a simple background.html file that sets the background to grey (RGB: 200, 200, 200).  You can rename your old file and save this one to  %UGII_BASE_DIR%\UGTIPS\background\html\

Alternatively, in a text editor open style.css from  %UGII_BASE_DIR%\UGTIPS\background\_css  and edit the rgb values on line 24 to 200, 200, 200 (or your own choice).
