Allow developers to use a stylesheet to format view and form action buttons/bars so you don't have to go through the action bar properties for all your views if you want to change design.
Like many of us, I use hidden columns in views for sorting, row coloring, etc. I also get confused sometimes when looking at the design of the view and trying to figure out which columns are hidden and which aren't.
I think it'd be very useful if the designer ...
@dblookup should allow you to look up on multiple categorisations as you can using lotusscript view.getdocumentbykey. You should be allowed to enter in a text list so that each item is looked up in a catogorised view.
Now you can only specify 1fix text label for Notes view column titles.
It would be very usefull to be able to specify an @Formula to define Notes view column titles. Especially in multilingual environments, where you can use @formula to show the column title in the user's language.
i would LOVE a new column "type" in a notes view, for lack of a better term called an "inline response column" ... This would be similar to the "display responses only" column, except that it allows me to add multiple columns for response documents, allows me to do totals for ...
This applies to the GetView method of the NotesDatabase object. It would be FANtabulous if the compiler could display a list of the views currently defined in the database when you hit the open-paren while typing the code. This behaviour would be similar to the function header autocomplete stuff.
Currently when expanding a category, all other categories collapses. This is annoying for a user.
while expanding a category, retrieve only the children nodes/rows and insert under the category. (rather than refreshing the entire page).
This method might also have parameters to specify which columns to copy and whether to include column headers.
Using Private Views in Lotus Notes has always been a bit of a double edge sword.
They do have their obvious benefits and can work fantastically. Unfortunately they have their limitations, which on paper would be quite easily resolved with a little work.
The problem ...
It's possible to add an image from the image resources to a column in the view, but if we want to provide a thumbnail of an image that's attached to the document, in a Notes client, it's not possible.
It may need another option in the column properties to ...
If you use resortable columns in a view which contains categories, then once the user triggers the resorting all categories are deactivated and all documents are now sorted only according to the "resort-column".
While this behaviour can be sometimes useful it would be nice to have an option for ...
As an alternative to Views/folders, provide the ability to execute a query at run time that returns a subset of documents in the database and allow me to display these documents in a control similar to a view/folder. This is not unlike how datagrids work with SQL based languages. I ...
If a database does not have a default view specified (which is easily done), certain areas of functionality don't work as intended -- especially when it comes to document collection operations (e.g. code that generates doclinks).
A co-worker recently encountered a particularly nasty issue in which looping a document ...
When you search in a view using LotusScript method FTSearch, if the database is FTIndexed, the view is filtered and sorted by relevance in descending order.
I'd like to specify a parameter to have the view filtered and sorted by view order, like if the database was not indexed.
Call uidoc.refresh form an action button in embedded view reliably crash the Lotus client - in every version I have tried. There is much usage for this.
I sometimes have the need to not see the grand totals on View Columns. The client would much rather just see the Categorized totals. Have a check box in designer in the column box where Totals are specified to show or not show grand total.
It would be nice when there was an option where you could indicate some view column spacing. This is very usefull when you have a right justified column with numbers. In many cases this column is followed by yet another column with left justification. Now I have to enter a ...
In views, that have sort on demand columns, it is often annoying to users, that the view might open sorted on a column other than the categorized one.
Could we get an additional on-open option to "Restore as designed", thereby reverting to categorization and sorting as designed originally.
Right now we have "Embedded views with show single category","Private views", "@ViewSetInfo", "DB2 Query view". All of these solutions do nearly the same thing: Presenting the user only a dynamically filtered part of a view. None of these solutions works perfect.
A) Embedded View ...
I need to allow my users to personalise their Notes application by picking colour scheme. The app in question is now 12 years old and is need of a bit of 'sexing up', it's also big & complex.
So I added a colour column to my view so that ...
