    Changing the Add to e-Shelf Icon

    With Primo v3, users add items to their e-Shelf by selecting the Star icon that displays next to the item in the brief results. In general, this icon can be changed by adding new images to the server and updating the User Interface Images code table.
    To change the Star icon to a check box:
    1. Save the check box images (icon_checkbox_on.png and icon_checkbox_off.png) to a directory on your Back Office server. For example:
    2. Select the User Interface Images code table on the following page in the Back Office:
      Primo Home > Advanced Configuration > All Code Tables > Front Endsubsystem
      User Interface Images Code Table
    3. Update the Description field to reference the new images that you placed on the Back Office server. For this example, you will have to update the iconstaron and iconstaroff codes, as follows:
