    Default Skin layout control

    Hi All,

    Where can I find the html/xml/css/whatever that controls the layout of the Message View/Preview Pane? I would like to have a skin that offers that view in Outlook 2003 style (preview pane on the right instead of below). Can this be done in a skin, or does it have to be a systemwide default?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, adding a new view to the web client isnt as easy as mucking with the skin. There's a lot of javascript behind each view that drives the UI.

    We're slowly getting to a point where the rendering code is being separated from the program logic using templates. So eventually, you will be able to modify a template and override an existing one. But we're not completely there yet. And even then, is some cases, you'll have to do a little javascript kung fu.

    In the meantime, there's a couple of existing enhancements that you may want to vote for depending on whether either solves you're what you're trying to do:

    Have voted for bug 14863 which is exactly what I'm trying to do. Is there anything I can do to assist with that bug?

    Nope.
    We're doing some MAJOR (re)coding, so it's best if it's left up to our devs.
    You can read more about it on our blog post from Conrad named LAZY LOADING.
