We have the $DesignerVersion field in design elements to warn older clients that the element has been edited in a newer version of Notes. Thats great! But, what if we could specify the target-version for an application? I could then use Designer 8 to create solutions for Notes/Domino 6.5, and have Designer warn me if I use elements or features that won't work with N/D 6.5!

When working on code that is to run in an earlier version I use the designer help for this older version instead of the version of the client I'm currently in. That way I'll be less likely to use functionality that is not available in the target version.

When using Visual Studio to develop ASP.Net applications you can define the version of HTML that you wish to conform to and the syntax check is run against that version. I think it would be great to have the abililty to be able to nominate a version of Notes in Domino Designer and have all the syntax checking etc run against that version. That way I can take advantage of the latest features in a newer version of Domino Designer and not have to worry about using a feature not supported by the Notes client of my targeted audience.

Definitely a great idea!

I'd love to move up to ND8 so we can play and test in the new world, but still be able to do maintenance and support with our existing 6.5 environment.

This is the same idea as here: { Link }

Back then there was not any big support for that functionality.
