Themes and Icons

Themes define the arrangement of application components and the color scheme of the application, viz., the colors that will be applied to the header strip, the component header, the buttons on the Forms, the overall font that will be applied to the application, the different styles that will be applied to the headers/tabs/component headers/forms/reports etc. Zoho Creator supports over 2000+ built-in icons that you can use for various components present in your application. You can set a theme and icon of your choice directly from the live application.


  • Themes and Icons can be configured only by the application admin and the members to whom the admin has granted access to edit the application.
  • Themes and Icons are supported only for new live enabled users. For clarifications, contact
