I would like to see Notes client support for CSS expanded to cover a wider range of Designer elements than just Page & Form.
Notes has this really cool feature that allows styles sheets to be used to format the design of forms/pages using the Notes client.  This capability does not receive a lot of coverage, possibly because its use is limited to forms/pages and then to only some of the design components on each form/page.  Using this feature I can:-
  1. Make changes to multiple forms, tables, labels etc via a single change to a CSS
  2. Make sure all my design elements (forms at least) have a consistent look/feel
  3. Share a form/page accross multiple applications and make it look different in each application without code changes.
  4. Match the Notes client and Web client look/feel via a common CSS.
  5. Allow users to customize the look/feel of an application to meet their specific preferences (Skinning)

The Designer elements I would particularly like to see covered are:-

  1. Action Bars (Form, Page , and View)
  2. Views (View attributes and columns attributes)
  3. Framesets

And add the possibility to control this via Lotusscript too.
2) Rob Porter837 (29 Oct 2009)
This would be an amazing addition to apps developed for the Notes client. At the moment the thought of trawling through all the views in a database to change the their appearance is enough to put anyone off. Just imagine being able to change a style sheet and instantly ALL the views' appearance changes. The same applies to action bars.
What a time saver this would be! This one definitely gets my vote!
