Changing The Default Link Color In A View.

Did you ever have a blue shaded background on the web that didn't really work with the document links in your Domino...

view? You can change the default blue color of the links by adding some simple HTML into your view column (without rendering the whole view as HTML contents). In the column that is acting as your links for the web, go to the formula window. The particular example I am showing uses a field name, but this can be expanded as needed. Enter the following code where white is the color of your choice and FieldName is the name of your field. "<span style=\'color:white\'>" + FieldName +"" ***Note: Brackets [] should be placed inside both sets of quotation marks.*** This view column will show the entire line in Notes so you need to either create a view for the web only, hide the column from Notes users, or come up with some crazy @if formula.
