Quote board widget - User guide

1Overview

This document describes the configuration options which are available as standard in the Quote Board website widget, by varying the URL. Many of these options are common to all the widgets provided by FX Blue Labs.

1.1Widget iframe HTML

The HTML for the widget is as follows. You need an account on the www.fxblue.com website, and you must fill in the name of your account as the userid=X setting in the URL:

<iframe src="//www.fxblue.com/webwidgets/quoteboard/quoteboard?userid=X" width="300" height="230">

<a href="//www.fxblue.com">FX Blue - free tools and services for FX and CFD traders</a>

</iframe>

Several settings in the widget can be changed by adding options to the URL in the src attribute of the iframe.

You can change the width and height to any value which you want. The recommended minimum size for the widget is 300x230.

2Quote board configuration options

This section describes the options in the widget which can be changed, by adding options to the URL in the src attribute for the iframe. In the following example, the theme option has been added to the URL:

<iframe src="//www.fxblue.com/webwidgets/quoteboard/quoteboard?userid=X&theme=Black">

<a href="//www.fxblue.com">FX Blue - free tools and services for FX and CFD traders</a>

</iframe>

2.1Colours

You can change the colours used by the Quote Board widget either by switching to a complete alternative theme, or by specifying individual colours. But you cannot use both options: the theme, if specified, takes precedence.

All individual colours can be specified using either CSS names such as Red or Goldenrod, or using hex codes such as #E0FFE0. Please note that the # character should be URL-encoded as %23. For example:

//www.fxblue.com/webwidgets/quoteboard/quoteboard?userid=X&clr_bg=%23E0FFE0

2.1.1Theme

The Quote Board widget currently has two built-in colour themes: the standard one (light), and a dark theme. You can switch to the dark theme using the following addition (case-sensitive) to the URL:

The theme cannot be used in combination with the other, individual colour options described here. The theme takes precedence.
