Generic warning message + icon. Where a record is confidential, or inactive, or closed, we'd like an easy but consistent way to alert the user so they instantly notice. Suggestion is for configurable warning messages that can be re-used across objects to give consistent look and feel We can use coloured field display (with limitations), but having e.g. a coloured box appear with icon marked messages would have a much more obvious / intuitive feel.
