Improved formatting for view headings on the Web

The style control provided by Domino for view headings is limited. Here's a tip that will allow you to customize the look of all your view headings using CSS.

  1. Update the style of your view column headings to:
    Default Sans Serif, Plain, 10 point, Black. (Bold can stay on columns as needed.)

  2. Include this code as pass-thru HTML on your view template or on the page you expect the view to appear. This code will render/control the style of any TH (table header) HTML tag on the page.

    th {
     COLOR: #658FBF;
     background-color: #e2e2e2;
     FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; 
     FONT-SIZE: 12px; 
     FONT-WEIGHT: bold; 
     vertical-align: bottom;
     text-align: left;

  3. Adjust the CSS properties as needed to obtain the best colors for your site. (If you don't want the headings bold, remove the font-weight attribute from the style. This makes it easier for you to not have to bold the column headings on every view.)
FYI: This tip works best in conjunction with my Fit views to window or table widths tip, so the background color of the table header is a consistent length on all view pages.
