Below are screen shots of the Universal Display File (COLORSD) being created the Universal Designer. There are 3 record formats representing the parts of an HTML page, the HeaderBody, and Footer. The middle image shows CONAME and COHEX as the bound fields. CONAME (color name) is the variable containing names of colors, the example CONAME is defined as CHAR(30)COHEX (color hex) is the variable containing the hex values of CONAME's colors, the example CONAME is defined as CHAR(7) and the records include the '#' along with the hex color value (i.e. #FF0022). If you would prefer, you can use valid CSS color names instead of the hex color value and the example will still work. You will need to make sure your fields are properly defined for the length and type of field. Our Universal Display File will access the information in these bound fields and display them in our program. Please refer to the  for more information with this step.

The Body  format is used to define a section of the file/object that will be printed one or more times depending on an input source. The Body format in this example defines an Option for the List Box and will be printed to the JSON object as many times as there are records in the COLORSP database file. Please notice that the separator property is set. This property will add the separator after each WRITE.
