Spruce up Domino buttons for IE5

Domino buttons are ugly gray things that don't do anything natively when you mouseover them.

Domino buttons are ugly gray things that don't do anything natively when you mouseover them. You can, of course, use Javascript to code mouseover and mouseout events but, if you are in a closed environment where all of your users are using IE5, there is an easier way.
At the top of the form, add the following code:

<style type='text/css'>
.button {color:green; font-weight:bold; behavior:url (js-bin\}

Create a button on a form.

Open the properties of the button, go to the HTML tab, and assign a class 
of "button" (without the quotes). Open a simple text editor (e.g., Notepad) and copy the following code into it. <PUBLIC:COMPONENT> <ATTACH EVENT="onmouseover" FOR="element" HANDLER="eventMouseOver" /> <ATTACH EVENT="onmouseout" FOR="element" HANDLER="eventMouseOut" /> <SCRIPT language="JScript"> function eventMouseOver() {'red';'hand'; } function eventMouseOut() {'green';'default'; } </SCRIPT> </PUBLIC:COMPONENT> Save the file to the following directory/name of your Domino server: data/domino/html/js-bin/

(If the directory doesn't exist, create it).

Presto! You have global mouseover and mouseout events for your buttons. With very little effort you can apply this style to every button in an application.
