Theme settings in Arrigo

NOTE: There is an issue with old theme files (prior to 16 March, 2022), read more here.

All theme settings resides in the theme file, in frontend folder. Prepare with the following steps:

You can now override the theme settings.

Remember to back up your theme settings, including the images in the image folder. Easiest way is to create a backupfolder with two folders inside, one for images, and one for theme folder.

Arrigo BMS legacy theme from EXOscada.

We now support legacy theming in views!

By inserting //LegacyTheme as the first row in the OnOpen-attribute of the View in ViewDesigner, Arrigo theming will be ignored when opening the view, letting font families and sizes be determined from the Shared/theme/Standard.cwvt.json-file instead.

Change pictures on login page

Imagine you want to change the images on the login page. You can add or modify the left large image, the top centered images and an image at the bottom right.

Make sure your images are located in the “images” folder (Program Files\Arrigo\Arrigo Local\Frontend\images). Normal graphics formats are supported such as jpg, png, svg.

Change theme.json in theme folder as follows:

  "login": {
    "layout": {
      "name": "splash",
      "left_splash_image": "/arrigo/images/my_new_left_splash_image.png",
      "top_center_image": "/arrigo/images/a_logo_or_something_else.png",
      "bottom_right_image": "/arrigo/images/yet_another_logo_or_image.png"

Make sure the name field is set to “splash” and that the path to the images are included.

Save the file. Reload Arrigo with Ctrl+F5 to fetch the new theme settings.

Change logo in header

Put your new myLogo.png in images folder.

If you need to adjust the height of the header, simply increase the numbers in the height section of the theme.json. small is mobile settings, and normal is desktop.

Change theme.json in theme folder to set the new logo:

 "header": {
    "images": {
      "logo": "myLogo.png"
    "height": {
      "normal": "70px",
      "small": "55px"

Change theme colors

Edit the colors.light.json and colors.dark.json to match your logo and visual style of your project.
