Background of region while loading Webpage

I Have a Layout with one region. In the region there is only one item - a webpage is loaded.
The page is black with white characters. If the webpage is reloading, the whole region gets white. although the background of the layout is black.
How can I change the color of the loading region?

We are using xibo 1.7.9

Best regards, Udito

The colour of the loading region cannot be changed, however you can set the Background of your Web page Widget to transparent on Android Players, which may resolve your issue.

To do this, open the Layout in question, Edit the Timeline of the Region and choose the Edit option on your Web page Widget. You should see a checkbox named “Background Transparent?”, tick this box and Save.

On my Android Player, I found that the region would go briefly white between loads of the web page. Setting the Background Transparent box instead makes the region appear black, with a Black Background set for the Layout. Please note I have tested this on Version 1.8.11.

If this does not resolve the issue, please let me know.

Many Thanks.

This is the solution, it works very good, now the loading moments are black, so it appears that only the text is reloading! This was exactly what I was looking for.

I am using also android players but with 1.7.9

Thank you so much!
