wouldn't it be nice to have the option to add an alt/title text to an icon in a view when selecting the option 'display values as icons' ?
 
for example if I mover over an icon with number 12 I get default the meaningless alt text: 'Pencil Icon'.
 
expanding the formula something like this:
 
@If( Status = "Draft" ; 12 : "This document has not been published yet" ; 182 : "Published" )
 
might be a bit more useful

If you are using image resources as view icons the image name will be displayed.
It would be nice if instead the comment would be displayed or if there would exist an additional field to set the popup text which is displayed in views.

Jens, I don't think that this is enabled by default, at least not in 7.

Patrick, I'm a bit concerned about the synonymous use of alt/title attribute. These are very distinct things in HTML, and as I would definitely want this to work on the web as well, we should make a very clear point here. Only IE, if (mis-) configured to do so, displays the alt tag as a pop-up text, while it is actually the title attribute that's meant for this purpose.

So, I promote, if you remove the term "alt" from this idea. :-)

I like this idea, Patrick. I'm currently working on making a Domino web site meet WAI accessibility guidelines, and all such images in views have to be replaced with computed HTML to display the image with an alt tag.

As Harkpabst pointed out, there is also a title attribute, and it might be nice to have programatic access to that too :-) But I just did a test on IE6.0.29 and Firefox 2.0.0.11 and both worked properly: they showed a "tooltip" popup with the title, and displayed the alt when the image src was broken.

Jens makes a good point: if Domino puts the image resource name as the alt text, we could just give the resource a good "alt" phrase as the name. But I just tried that on my r7 server, and it didn't fill in the alt tag.
