Can you have a Fixed Display (Graphic) in the Workplace Panel Similiar to the Application Bar Safe Area ?

Customer would like to know if you can Dock a Display say on the left side of the Workplace Area maybe half of the Workplace Area and have it fixed Similiar to the Application bar ? Would you use a Panel to do this. Could this also be a Safe area ? It will probably be a Display similiar to a OverView Navigation Display.

Customer will be using 800xa 6.0.

Thanks in Advance.

Thanks for the response. Would this not add the Display in the application Bar ? They would like it in the actually Workplace Panel.

Yes you can do this you will need a panel for this. See the attached document for what to add /change. Copy an existing object and change that, so it wil not be overwitten with an upgrade/update of 800xA. The panel layout gives you a left side 180px area where a navigation display can be displayed. The extra view class removes the menu bar from navigation display.

In your custom workplace you change the AFwWebWPLayout aspect you need to change to point to your custom panel. I made copies from all the involved parts and customised these if necessary. That way it will never be overwritten, and If you make a mistake you trow it away and start over again.
