Hi Everyone,

We were working with Smart Client and now that has come to a level. There was only one layout there so didnt worked on Layout Manager in Smart Client.

For Web Client, we would like to have different themes (As in CSS) and also would like to have combination of different technologies(With Ajax, Without Ajax, Using some Third Party Controls like Infragistics) to construct the Whole Client. Would also give option to user to switch amongnst the given Layouts.

For this we would require a Layout Manager which shall
-- Separate the construction of Client.
-- Construction shall be intelligent that shall depend on clients connection etc.

For this we also shall have different web controls. And depending on the layout choosed that control shall be used in Global Master Page.

If somebody is already working along these lines, share ideas.

That sounds like a good idea! Maybe you can create a new workitem in the IssueTracker in order to the community to vote for it, and then the WCSF Team consider it for the next version (which is in the development stage).

Hope it helps!
