Creating the font settings file for imported applications


To ensure that your imported mobile app is displayed properly with the Mobile – Slide Up layout, you customize the icon font for the native elements of your mobile app. After you upload the converted font file, create an empty text file for font settings.

Pega Platform stores font settings for Pega Infinity Mobile Client in the pyMobileFontsList file. When you import a mobile app that uses UI Kit in a version that is earlier than version 14, the pyMobileFontsList file is missing from the mobile app definition, and you must create that file manually.
Upload the font files. For more information, see Uploading custom font files.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click Create Technical Text File .

  2. On the Create Binary File form, in the Identifier field, enter the font name, pyMobileFontsList.

  3. In the App Name (Directory) field, enter the name of the folder that contains the font settings file, for example, myAppName.

  4. In the File Type (extension) field, enter txt.

  5. Click Create and Open.

  6. Click Save as Specialize by class or ruleset , and then select your application in the Context area.

Modify the fonts list to add the font for icons in your imported mobile app. For more information, see Modifying the font settings file for imported applications.

  • Mobile app branding and layout

    Before you build a mobile app, you can customize its branding and layout to meet your company's specific requirements. Upload images to Pega Platform, and then use them to customize the splash screen, application icon, and other branding assets.

  • Replacing the icon font in imported applications

    Ensure that your mobile app is displayed properly with the Mobile – Slide Up layout, by replacing the font for icons on the header or the bottom bar. Complete this procedure when the UI Kit in your application is in an earlier version than version 14, and you do not add the latest UI Kit to your application stack.
