I would like to discuss some topics about the missing sidebar in DetailView
of Vtiger 7 and how you solve this "problem".
At first I would do a Pro/Contra list about the sidebar, because I'm not
fully sure if it is really a bad decision to remove it.
- Missing Sidebar do not require to be loaded on page load, which
increase the performance. (I think VT7 have a great performance)
- The available place for information is much bigger
- Some type of functions are better be placed within something like a
sidebar, because it start some processes or do not belong do "informations"
- On my 27' screen, the place for information is too big.
The left and right column are too far away to have a good clarity. But I
could understand on default 20' screens it is better.
In any way, I need such function to provide the option to trigger Processes
I cannot expect a "default" employee of a company know how to use if I hide
it behind a button/link.
And I think for the PDFMaker *@Matus* it is also a must have to get fast

I think it is looking good.
But one single developer cannot do this, because it is a wasted space for
only 1 or 2 modules.
If we could share a JS Function, DB Table, which do this and check if
already another module apply this sidebar into the browser, we could
implement a powerful sidebar. Extensibility by other plugins and Events in
*@Vtiger Devs*: Why not implement the listview sidebar in this way of
layout to make a clear separation between list and sidebar. The solution
you choose to combine both within one container is confusing.
I'm happy to hear, if such collaboration is possible.
