he web toolkit is a set of web-based techniques by which Activeʼs direct-to-consumer clients may offer their customers a number of online features:
Within each iframe, another script reads product, customer, and transaction data from the clientʼs Active Club database and displays it dynamically in the browser. The layout and format of the text within the frames is controlled by a number of CSS classes. By modifying the associated style sheets, the designer can select alternate layouts and modify the iframesʼ appearance as needed to match the existing host site. Furthermore, the specific text of most fields and labels within the frames is also defined in the clientʼs database (Frame Configuration), where it can be modified as needed through Manager.
Figure 1 illustrates the relationships among the web toolkit components and the host site.
To implement the toolkit features, the designer copies the appropriate code to a clientʼs web site, modifies a number of parameters to refer to the specific clientʼs database, and adds two sets of CSS styles to the host page. The exact method depends on the development environment in use; see Building the page.
