This wiki is to trace the sidebar feature development effort in AOO 4.0.
We are going to consolidate the background, UX design and development/testing status and related action items in this wiki.

The goal of the sidebar feature is to enhance user experience by adding sidebar for 3 apps: Writer, Impress & Calc.

Sidebar Background

For AOO, there is already a UNO API for plugable sidebar controls in general.  There is a C++ framework for the side bar used in Impress.

For Symphony sidebar, we can get detailed introduction here.
