Introduction to User Interface Options

The User Interface Options (UI Options) component allows users to transform the presentation of the user interface and content resources so that they are personalized to the individual user’s needs.

UI Options does three things:

  • places a preferences editor dialog with a set of adjusters in a collapsible panel at the top of the page, accessible through a button in the upper right corner of the page;
  • instantiates a cookie-based Settings Store for storing the user’s preferences; and
  • acts upon the user’s preferences.
