Lesson 9. Using Templates > Modifying an Editable Tag Attribute

Modifying an Editable Tag Attribute

The ability to create editable tag attributes makes the possibilities for creating templates much greater. You can potentially make a wide variety of tag attributes editable which will give you a great deal of control over the individual documents created from your original template. Attributes such as background color, alignment, and size can increase the usefulness and flexibility of your template-based documents.

1.
Open the pt_cabrillo.html document and choose Modify > Template Properties.

The Template Properties dialog box opens, and the bgcolor tag attribute that you made editable in the previous exercise now appears in the Name list. You can see in the Value column that the default setting for this attribute is #FFFFFF.

2.
Select the bgcolor attribute.

Options for editing the tag appear below the list. In this case, you are provided with a text field in which you can change the color.

3.
Replace #FFFFFF in the bgcolor text field with #99CC99 and click OK to close the dialog box.

The color of the cell is now changed to light green.

You can save and close the pt_cabrillo.html file.
