Displaying Non-Notes Icons In Views

Ever find the Notes view icon set too limiting? There is a way to show additional icons in a notes view without creating new bitmap files on the server. As long as you are certain that your user community will have certain font sets available, you can use a graphical font to simulate icons. For example, for Windows clients, you can use the Windings or Symbol fonts. Would you like to have a view column display a skull-and-crossbones...

for certain documents? Simply add a column to a view and set the column's font to Wingdings. Then, use a column formula such as the following: @if (errorCode > 0; "N"; ""); NOTE: be sure to NOT set the column attribute of "Display Values as Icons".
