It can be very helpful when you can make your employees aware of any maintenance that might affect the systems and applications they access. Below I will detail a few simple customizations in StoreFront 3.0 you can use to do just that.

As you can see in the above image I have added a green bar with the scrolling text “Everything is working great! Test.” The great thing with StoreFront 3.0 is this shows in the StoreFront web page as well as the desktop Receiver.

How to do this

Step 1

Open Receiver.html in “C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\<StoreWebName>” and Overwrite existing code

<div id=”pluginTop”><div id=”customTop”></div></div>

with the following

<div id=”pluginTop”><div id=”customTop”><div class=”StoreMarquee”><span></span></div></div></div>

Step 2

Manually edit or use provided utility to modify the Style.css located in “C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\<StoreWebName>\custom”

/* StoreFront messaging begin */

#customTop {




.StoreMarquee {

width: 0 auto;

margin: 0 auto;

white-space: nowrap;

overflow: hidden;

box-sizing: border-box;


.StoreMarquee span:after {

Content: ‘Everything is working’; /*what the element will contain*/

display: inline;


.StoreMarquee span {

font-family:’Arial Black’, sans-serif;




display: inline-block;

padding-left: 100%; /* show the marquee just outside the paragraph */

animation: StoreMarquee 15s linear infinite;

-moz-animation: StoreMarquee 15s linear infinite;

-webkit-animation: StoreMarquee 15s linear infinite;


/* Make it move */

@keyframes StoreMarquee {

0% { transform: translate(0, 0); }

100% { transform: translate(-100%, 0); }


@-moz-keyframes StoreMarquee {

0% { -moz-transform: translate(0, 0); }

100% { -moz-transform: translate(-100%, 0); }


@-webkit-keyframes StoreMarquee {

0% { -webkit-transform: translate(0, 0); }

100% { -webkit-transform: translate(-100%, 0); }


/* StoreFront messaging end */

Done! For the Receiver.html change to apply you will want to do an iisreset. Afterwards you can make the Style.css changes on the fly.

In addition, to enable/disable the scrolling message use the utility or comment out the “#customTop” section


/*#customTop {
