Changing title of printing preferences window.

    Question

  • I'm developing metro UI for printer drivers. Is there a way to dynamically change title of printing preferences title on the application initialization stage?

  • Hi Sergey,

    That bar's color, title and image are all based on information from your Metro style device app's manifest file. They can't be changed at runtime, but if you fill out everything in your app's manifest file you can make it appear more branded.

    Thanks!

  • The Title, background color, text color, and the small logo on the Advanced Print Settings app is taken from the <Applications><VisualElements> tag in the app manifest.

  • Sergey,

    can you please confirm what title you are looking to change? Are you trying to change the app's splash screen? Or the bar at the top of the print preferences fly out?

    thanks

  • I want to change title (and image, if possible) of the bar at the top of the print preferences fly out.

    Thank you!

    But that means, the title will have to be static. Is there any way to make it show current printer name, for example (like the standard Metro style Printing Preferences does)? I mean the case when I use single Metro-style device app for many drivers.

    Also, if I use a single app for both the Start Experience and the Advances Printer Settings experience - does that mean that I will have to choose some single title that will be appropriate for both of these experiences? I.e I can't have "Fabricam printers" title for Start Experience and "Fabricam Printer Settings" title for printer settings experience at the same time, can I?
