 Highlight Folders with DWA

Bryan KuhnPost date: 2007-08-17 04:01

In DWA 7 and even in DWA 8 when you get a new email in a folder, you have no idea you have a new email unless you click on the folder.  The client side has had this feature for some time and I wonder when IBM is going to bring it to DWA.  At a Notes 8 Seminar earlier this year, I asked some IBM'ers about the feature and they said they were working on it.  I asked another individual (Non-IBM'er) and he said they could do it, it would just slow down the DWA client.

Here are my questions:

  1. Has anyone created any code or made any template modifications to highlight folders or change font of folders when it contains new unread message?
  2. Do you think IBM will implement this in a future release? If so how soon?

I am not aware of the status of IBM's development.

But if it the unread status is programmaticly available you could build in an Ajax call to be performed after the DWA has loaded that could highlight the folders when they contain unread documents.

That way it would not slow down the loading of the DWA since the data would be loaded asynchronously after a full load.
