An design element I can add as an option to my view in display mode where I can specify what the information in the view contains.

For example when one of the table headers is labbeled CR, in the legend I can say that CR stands for Change Request.

I could nowadays create the view on top in a frameset and in the bottom frame a page with the legend info, but this will require an extra design element (frameset)...

I would rather have mouse-over text. I added the idea here:

{ Link }

Sorry, Patrick. Feel free to get revenge on me by demoting it! :-)

My solution to show the meaning of icons is to add an action to the right of the view with the following code:

@PickList([Custom]:[Single]; @DbName; "Legenda"; "Legenda"; ""; 1)

and add a hidden view "Legenda" with documents that have two attributes: the icon value and an explanory text.

When you press the button a popup will show with the icons and their meaning.

Although I like the mouse-over idea for column headings and view icons, a legend would be nice to define row colors.
