Siebel IP2014: How to Customize the Aurora Theme Positioning of Applet Buttons

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.

How to Override the Applet Method Invoked in IP2014's Presentation Model

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.
