For SDMS Version 4.5 -- see http://notestracker.blogspot.com/2009/10/sdms-version-4500-for-lotus-notesdomino.html -- one new feature added was the ability to "brand" each SDMS replica with your own logo image by specifying it in the SDMS Profile document, in order to have your logo displayed at top left of each page (rather than the standard, fixed SDMS icon).
It was easy to get working for the Notes Client environment, but I ran into a few coding issues when trying to get it working for the Web environment, sent out a cry for ideas (see http://notestoneunturned.blogspot.com/2009/04/image-served-out-by-domino-not-visible.html ) and thankfully got tips on how to handle graphics in the Web environment.
Thinking back over all this, I've come to the conclusion that we need the ability to programmatically manipulate image resources directly, and I'm suggesting two new Formula Language @functions for this.
Let's call them "@SetImageResource" and " @GetImageResource" shall we?
I propose that the first would let you retrieve an image resource directly from the database's internal image resource repository, and the second would enable you to directly write an image into the repository. The @GetImageResource should enable you to retrieve at least a specific image resource (e.g., a file such as "logo.gif"). It would be nicer if you could also retrieve a list of image resources (perhaps with their filenames filtered by wild-card string, such as *.png) so that you can enumerate the list and do some clever things.
Then you wouldn't have to mess around with hidden views and other trickery to easily and elegantly manipulate images in your applications.
