A formula that would return:

  • “1” if user has right to edit the currently open document 
  • “0” if user has only rights to read the document

This would be a very useful function when writing hide-when formulas or formulas to insert subforms especially when user has Author-level access to the database.

I am voting yes because I have wished for this many times. I dont however see much hope that the standard @functions will ever be extended, although this would also be a welcome addition to the SSJS @functions too.

@1 Standard @functions are the epitome of efficiency in coding and effectiveness. What one macro can accomplish on a list operation is incredible, but sadly lost on the younger set, preferring to write dozens of lines of code tore-implement a perfectly good algorithm, in many cases.

Lotus should keep moving @functions forward; they do have their place and limitations, but ensure that RAD does work in Lotus Notes/Domino.

I'm voting yes, but I really thing the function should be named @IsDocAuthor or possibly @IsAllowedEdit, since the term "Editor" is may be confused with the ACL setting of EDITOR... and that is not what we want the function to return!

Good point Kenneth. @IsAllowedEdit or similar could be better name for the function.
