Not sure why you are getting an apparent change in the size of your box, but there's an easier way to change the color of the header: Select the Header label by clicking it, then select the desired fill color and your entire header will change to the color you select.
I can change all the other boxes in the starter solutions "Contact Management" but not the top header. Could you do me a favor and try it and see what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!
Hi Mary Ellen,
There is a graphic at the top of Contact Management but it's not in the header (it's in the body); it has no header. It is set to resize (see Inspector > Position and Autosizing). The far right lock means resize width. Many of the objects on that layout are set to resize.
You cannot change the color of this graphic. There are a few things you can do if you remove that graphic (when in layout mode, select the layout to the right of the right-most button and you'll see the four handles appear, defining the layout):
1) Add a header (layout part) and color the background of the header as you wish (after you delete the prior graphic).
2) Replace it with a different graphic of your color choice or
3) Simplest way ... create a rectangle, color the background as you wish and place it in the header area. To get it precisely as before, measure the existing graphic in px (height and width) and also location (position left and position top) and create your rectangle the same. You may have to Arrange > Send to Back so everything in that area sits on top of your new 'graphic.'
Remember also to check autosizing (to width) if you want to match the existing style.
