As a Viewlet Author, you are aware of the stages involved in the creation process. Configuring compiling/publishing options for your project is a vital one. This is accomplished within the Project Properties dialog. In this dialog you set options for the Viewlet profile, image and sound quality, timing, language, skin and more--and it must be done for each Viewlet project! This can be a time-consuming task. Here are some tips for streamlining the process.

To set 'default' options for your existing and ALL of your new Viewlet projects within the Project Properties dialog:

  1. Open a project within ViewletBuilder or ViewletQuiz.
  2. Select Project > Project Properties from the menu bar.
  3. In the dialog that displays, go through the left navigation menu (Viewlet Profile, Image Quality, Sound Quality and so on) and select the options in each of these areas as desired.

  5. Click the 'OK' button to close the dialog.

Keep in mind, once you click the 'Save as Default Properties' button in the Project Properties dialog, this will save the current settings you have selected in this dialog and apply them as the baseline/default options to this and new projects.

Configuring your default publishing options will speed up this part of the creation process and all publishing options can be modified, on-the-fly on a project-per-project basis. That makes this a Viewlet Authoring tip worth checking out!

Until next time...
Happy Viewleting!
