Halogen initializes the Title property using the initialPage Name with spaces in place of underscore characters.
|Preview Page combination button and drop-down selector||
Clicking on the Preview Page button opens a window that displays the currently selected control page using the selected page viewer. The default page viewer is a web browser that connects to the control page web server, either on your PC (if not connected to a HAL) or on the HAL itself when you are connected.

The menu shows all DR6 devices that include the currently selected control page. Clicking on a DR6 in the list opens the DR6 Viewer window and displays the currently selected control page. For more information see DR6 Viewer Dialog Box.
note: Halogen remembers the page viewer option and indicates this with the green checkmark. It uses this option the next time you click on the Preview Page button.
The Device IP Address portion of the drop-down menu displays all of the IP addresses assigned to the control page web server. If not connected to a HAL, this list includes all of your PC's local IP addresses. When connected to a HAL, however, the list changes to show all of the IP addresses assigned to the HAL device.
