I wanted help on modification of the forms to enhance the look and feel of the forms. The out of box features give a vanilla look and does not impress a customer easily.
Some examples like Collapsable sections, better backgrounds to forms,fields etc.
Is there any CSS that one would modify to meet the desirable look and feel.
Another question was, if there are screens developed in dotnet, can those be re-used directly in Metastorm BPM? If yes, can you please provide details.
Any help in this regard is much appreciated.

You can edit files, but it gets overridden on every update. I think there is a config file, and some people have crafted completely different clients.

I do not recommend it. The benefits of a BPM system we can deliver are in the are processes. I agree the UI could use some big improvements, but if you want to go down that route, look at a third-party client like Swift or others. Look in 3rd-party products  forums here.

Post an example, and we will have a much better idea what the problem is. In about 90% of posts, the problem is one of communication. Examples bridge that gap.

For quick wins on the UI front, we've combined some jQuery functions with some elements of Metastorm. There are obvious limitations compared to vanilla webdev, such as lack of being able to edit the necessary files (e.g. css), naming of class ids on controls etc, but you can achieve collapsible panels and some slide, toggle, hover etc effects. I haven't explored it in depth, but it's fairly simple client side scripting required combined with some controls on the forms to achieve the desired effect.
