Chat Widget Styling
In the Chat Widget Configuration application, you can edit the style of your chat widget to suit your organization's brand, website style, logo, and so forth.
The following properties determine the overall appearance of the chat widget. As you edit style properties, the preview pane on the right side of the screen will display the changes you are making to the widget.
Highlight color is the color shown at the top of the widget, as the text color of the system's automatically sent messages (e.g., "Chat session ended"), and as the background color of the customer's text. You can select this color from the given list of 40 web colors.
Highlight text color
Highlight text color is the color of the customer's text. You can select from the given list of 40 web colors to help differentiate the customer's text from the agent's.
Title is the name of your chat widget. Having a title is helpful when you have multiple chat widget configurations and need to identify them quickly.
