Customize visitor badges

Create your own visitor badges according to your corporate identity

All badges are located on each PC running Pronestor Visitor. The files are located in the program data folder:

Windows XP
c:\program and documents\all users\application files\Pronestor visitor

Windows 7/8
c:\programdata\Pronestor visitor

In the program data folder you’ll find 5 badge files – each numerated from 1 – 5, starting with badge_1.xml. Each badge is editable with Notepad or equally.

Badge Structure

Each badge design consists of a series of elements. An element can be either an image (imageelement), an input field (inputelement), a text field (textelement) or a barcode tag (barcodeelement).

Each element will be positioned according to an x- and y-coordinate.

ImageElement / Logos

Images/logos of type bmp or png can be added to your badge.

A default company logo has been added by default - this logo can be changed by overwriting it with your company logo instead.

The logo - customer_logo.bmp - is to be found in the program data folder as described above. To fit in the default design, the logo should not be more than 480x180px (Width x Height)

If Zebra printer is used please ensure an image resolution of minimum 300 dpi and in white/black only (not gray).

You can add several images to the same badge. If two images are overlaps, then the element added last in the badge design will be on top.

Tags:
