The Interface options are available to help control the size of the avatar relative to the browser and edit the location and style of the interface controls.
Displayed Title #
Your Chat Transcript box has a header (title) you can customize. Enter the text you’d like for that header here.
Text Placeholder #
This is the text that appears in the textbox before the user starts to type or speak.
Interface Style #
We have created some default UIs that your avatar will use on your site. You can select one here. If you are using our API and are creating your own UI for your site or application, choose the “Avatar Only” option.
- Avatar Only – Avatar will resize to the container of the website.
- Bottom Bar – Displays the input text line at the bottom of the browser.
- Bottom Bar with Opaque Avatar – Displays the input text line and avatar at the bottom of the browser.
- Large Chat (Dark Mode) – Displays the text window with a light background and the avatar with a dark background.
- Large Chat (Light Mode) – Displays the text window with a dark background and the avatar with a light background.
- Minimized – Displays the text window collapsed.
UI Container #
This is the DOM object (Document Object Model ) on your site / app where you would like the avatar and its UI to appear. Typically, this will be in the body, but if you are creating your own UI or would like the interface to appear elsewhere (in a specified < div >, for example), you can indicate that here. This is a CSS selector so to specify an object by id use ‘#myObjectId’. This field only works in conjunction with the UI Style when using the Avatar Only option.
Clear conversation on avatar load: #
If “yes” is selected, the avatar will start a new conversation session each time the page is loaded. If “no” is selected the avatar will remember the conversation session if the user returns withing 5 minutes.
Automatically Re-Enable Microphone #
If “yes” is selected, the microphone will be auto re-enabled after the avatar finishes a response. This action will only take place if the previous question was asked using the microphone.
Custom Colors #
Custom Colors displays color chips for the current colors in the color palette. Selecting on a color chip displays a color palette editor. The color for that chip can be modified using the color palette editor.
CSS Overrides #
Show/Hide CSS #
Selecting the Show CSS displays the CSS code in an editable text box.
Your selected UI will include default styles your interface will use. This overrides section lists the styles that are most commonly customized. If you need further customization, you can identify the CSS elements you’d like to override in the default styles for your avatar and add them in here, as well.
Note: There are two cameras included in Character/Cameras and Loading Images: one is a fullbody and one is a headShoulders. Either one can be specified in CSS Overrides for camera.
