According to Appeon's own website:


I am able to do 'Codeless UI Theme'. However I have some questions:

1) Am I able to create my own theme without using any code?
2) If 1 is applicable, then how would I be able to theme my software without using any code?

If you provide a DDLB of all theme folders using DirList( "theme" ) method in the UI which applies the selected theme, you can add as many custom theme folders as you want to the theme folder (even after the app is deployed) and the DDLB grows/shrinks dynamically with DirList( 'theme' ) based on the number of custom theme folders in the theme folder - without having to change any code. When the user chooses a theme name from the DDLB, your app has logic to apply the chosen theme using the ApplyTheme() function.

Hi Steve,

You can create custom themes. You don't need coding in PowerBuilder but you have to specify the themes properties in a JSON file.
