How to create a background (bottom underlay) Window


In this tutorial, we will explore how to create a background (bottom underlay) window within EasyBuilder Pro to enhance the visual design of your project.

Software Version:

EasyBuilder Pro


  1. Start by navigating to the “View” tab and selecting “Window Tree.” This action will enable you to view and manage your project’s windows, allowing you to add and customize them as needed:

  2. On the left side of EasyBuilder Pro, select the “Windows Tree” tab. Right-click on any window and choose “New” to create a new window. In this demonstration, we will create a background window that will serve as the foundation for our main window, which we’ll designate as Window 10:

  3. Within the “Window Settings” of the newly created window, in the “Size” section, you have the option to adjust its dimensions to cover a specific portion of the main window. Additionally, you can insert text and shapes into this background window, as these objects will appear within the base window:

  4. Next, right-click on the window to which you want to apply the background you’ve created. Then, access the “Settings” for that window:

  5. Within the “Settings,” locate the “Underlay window” section, select the background window you’ve created (Window 15 in this demo) from the “Bottom” drop-down list. By doing so, all objects from the background window will be positioned beneath the objects in the base window. It’s important to note that you can add multiple windows and stack objects on top of each other as needed:

  6. In the example below, you can observe how the base window now incorporates the text and shapes from the background window (bottom underlay window). However, any objects created within the base window will always appear above the background window:
