In IP2013 and previous versions of Siebel users have gotten accustom to the positioning of buttons on list and form applets. The Menu, New, Delete, and Query buttons appear at the top left. After you upgrade to IP2014 you will notice that the buttons have moved to the right side of the list applet. This is a small change that can become a nuisance and may take you a while to get used to. Here's how to change it.
More observations from our recent upgrade to IP 2014.
We recently wrapped up an upgrade to IP 2014 and wanted to take a moment to share a brief summary of our observations. We hope that this summarized list of findings will be helpful to anyone that is considering a move to Oracle's latest Innovation Pack for Siebel.
Recently, we upgraded an environment from Siebel version 7.8.2 to IP2014. As we were performing testing we noticed that some applets had ++ images while others had + images to add records to applets. This was really confusing to the testing team.
We found the underlying cause was that the Aurora styling displays the + image for controls invoking the NewRecord method while it displays the ++ image for controls invoking the CreateRecord method. We also noticed that the CTRL-N hotkey was not adding a new record to the applet for the controls that invoked CreateRecord.

Many of you use nightly automation routines on your projects that do things like compile the SRF, export the repository and re-generate browser scripts. All good things. We are big fans of automating processes where possible and also leverage a script to automate these common tasks for our project teams. Here's some info you might find helpful
