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.
