You'd be better off building an HTML based template. The old .rlt files are no longer supported (we can't continue to support Flash when it's effectively dead). Templates built this way will still work of course, but you ought to really build an HTML one because it will be easier for you to understand and easy to implement in XOT.

Subject: [Xerte] Starting to develop new page templates

Hi all,

The past week I have been working on my first page template in Xerte, following the guideline „Creating Templates" in the help-file. It seems to work, but it took long to make something simple.  It was also my first experience with action script.  A few questions came up when I was creating the page template :

1. Is there some information about the logic of the xerte-objects :
properties, methods, …

For example in Numcalc.rlt i see that sometimes the property id is selected (ex. Progressbar) and in other object the property rs (ex. Judge
button) is selected to identify the object in action script. Is there somewhere a file where the properties and methods are explained for these objects?

2. When I have made a page template how can I share it with my colleagues through Xerte Online Toolkits? So they can use the page without having know the program language.

I have tried to put the .rlt-file into a template directory of XOT and then went to the management page in XET to update the templates but nothing happens.

3. When I put a Text Entry on the page and give the background the color white (#FFFFFF of #ffffff) or another color. It shows a black background?
I’m probably doing something wrong here.

Some technical information : I’m working on an Macbook Air. XOT is installed on the standard apache/php server of Mac OSX. Xerte 2.18 is running in een emulation window within Virtual box.
