The Graphic Settings tab allows you to configure the status colors, fan colors, and state colors that appear in standard and dynamic graphics, along with alarm flash settings. These settings apply to the Site Management Portal UI (online mode), SCT, and the Metasys UI. The status color settings may also be used by summaries or other views (Tailored Summaries, for example) to provide a consistent indication of an object’s status.

The following table describes the attributes of the Graphic Settings tab.
