Customize Widget for Gateway

There are times when a customer, normally a dealer, will want to rebrand the Yahoo Widget.

In order to do so, you will need a software designer who is somewhat familiar with JavaScript. You will also need a graphics designer who can scale your logo images to the appropriate size and convert them to .png file format.


A widget file is nothing more than a zip file containing the JavaScript code which is interpreted inside the engine. The data files, including all the graphics, are also bundled in the zip file. The zip file is unpacked into C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\Application Data\Yahoo\Widget Engine\Unzipped. Browse through the directory structure and you will find a directory with Xantrex branding image files.


Please go to the Yahoo! Widget web site at and click on the "Create Widgets" link in the header for more information. It shouldn't take more than a day to change the branding of the widget.
