There may be some instances where toggling color in the web client is desirable. While some documents may need to be viewed in color, rendering a black and white or grayscale document may decrease document load times.

You can toggle color in the viewer by following the steps below to edit one of the Square 9 Web Config files.

Steps:

1. Open File Explorer and navigate to: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\GlobalSearchViewer and open the web.config file

In GlobalSearch version 4.5 or older, go to C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Square9API instead

2. Add/change the following attributes. If they do not exist, simply copy and paste them from this KB into the web config under the <appsettings> block and set the value to either True or False (See below)


<appsettings>
	<add key="ViewerDropColor" value="false"></add>
	<add key="ViewerUseGrayscale" value="false"></add>
</appsettings>
XML
  • Toggling ViewerDropColor to True will set the viewer to full black and white for all documents.
  • Toggling ViewerUserGrayscale to True will set the viewer to use grayscale for all documents
  • Toggling False for both will enable full color in the viewer.


3. Save the web.config file.
4. Open CMD as an Administrator and enter command: iisreset
5. Launch GlobalSearch Web. The documents should now Render in accordance with your config file parameters.
