  • Choose a color style: soft, light, or dark. These colors are set by your administrator.
  • Or, select a custom color for the background of your widget's titlebar.
  • Note  If you select a gradient fill type, two color pickers appear: the gradient's top color on the left, and bottom on the right.

Note  To help you meet visual accessibility standards, there is a built-in WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guideline) checker on the Widget Settings page. Be aware that if you choose a shade that does not meet these guidelines (for example, the contrast between the text color and the background color is too low), the check mark by WCAG AA will be replaced by a warning or error icon to alert you to possible accessibility issues.
