# Frame numbering in Warsaw theme

This is a follow-up question to slide numbering in Beamer class (Warsaw theme)

In fact, I was trying to put frame numbering in my presentation using Warsaw theme. All I wanted is to put the numbering on bottom right corner. Therefore, I modified the option given by @CarstenThiel in the above link as

\defbeamertemplate*{footline}{shadow theme}{%
\leavevmode%
\end{beamercolorbox}%

\end{beamercolorbox}}%
\vskip0pt%
}


Similarly, @MikeR's answer at Beamer: Hide Backup Slides from Navigation Panel works the same:

\expandafter\def\expandafter\insertshorttitle\expandafter{%


My question here is that, is it possible for me to have a different color in the frame numbering area as shown below?

You can add another beamercolorbox to the footline template and add the information about the frame numbers there, using the desired color; a little example:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Warsaw}

\setbeamercolor{mycolor}{fg=red,bg=olive}

\leavevmode%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=.1\paperwidth,ht=2.5ex,dp=1.125ex,leftskip=.3cm,rightskip=.3cm plus1fil]{mycolor}%
\end{beamercolorbox}}%
\vskip0pt%
}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\end{document}
