LotusScript needs a method for creating an empty NotesDocumentCollection object. Many of us have "silly looking" techniques to create an empty collection anyway. A sort method for a NotesDocumentCollection would also be nice.
Even having a rough way to do this in Midas, I would really like to see a simple @formula (and matching LotusScript) method for determining if there was anything in the rich text. Even better would be if it took an argument that specified whether whitespace was included, so you ...
Way to findout variables which are declared but not used in the script
1-2-3 has a feature where you can create a new @function based upon a lotusscript function. I would like to see the same feature in Notes/Domino. Allow me in the Database script library to create a lotusscript function and mark it as being available as an @function within that database.
We already have GetFormattedText and GetUnformattedText, but what would really be helpful is to have a method that spits out the contents of a Rich Text field as HTML. It should be no more and no less than what happens when you send an email to an outside user. That's ...
There ought to be a better way of checking for an empty List than checking for a no-op Forall or trapping error 120. Perhaps extending IsEmpty to cover? I'd find that particularly helpful with class coding, when I'd often like to defer populating a List member until the first call ...
Especially when I have an XML type attachment or some text attachment I would like to be able to work with it directly inside script. I don't want to have to detatch the attachment. If I process some XML and end up changing it I woud like to be able ...
Use color in the debugger as it is seen in the editor.
We often spend enough time viewing our code in color that when we get to the debugger, the plain black and white makes it harder to recognize certain parts of your code.
Very often I have the need to import a graphics into a Domino rich text field. Example JPG or GIF file. Currently there are no backend classes to do this. There should be a simple Lotusscript function to enable this, and allow for options like resize and rotate on import.
We need the abbility to sort Document collections,
In OO languages you can usually create more than one method with the same name, but different signatures, that is different sets of parameters. This is called method overloading.
This way you could e.g. create more constructors (one without, the other with parameters) or overload a method like add ...
Code comments in lotus script should explain the purpose of the code as well as any modifications made to improve functionality or resolve bugs. As comments become ever longer their embedded nature is an impediment to the codes readability. I think the domino designer should have the ability to make comment blocks ...
Object Oriented Programming would be sooooo much easier in LotusScript if IBM would allow us to extend the native NotesDocument, Notesdatabase etc. classes.
I don't think there's much to add to this. How hard can it be to sort this?
It's since some years that i build PDF files "Server Side" from Lotus Domino applications both on Notes Client and Web without using any extra commercial application.The actual Lotus Symphony hasn't the full support of OpenOffice API so i am sure that on the future it will be in that ...
Agents should have the option to return a value to the calling sub/function.
The return value could be
This is an extension/generalisation of the linked idea.
When compiling LotusScript code, Designer should present a list of warnings - things that compile OK and don't prevent code execution, but look dubious. Some examples (adapted from things I've seen in the Delphi IDE):
- Variable declared ...
As Symphony is now integrated into Notes Client, it would be great, if a Lotus Script Class library could be provided. With greater integration between Notes Document Fields data exchange to Symphony documents.
I would like an 'AllDocuments' property that would return all documents in the NotesView. This would work in a similar way to the "AllEntries" property for the NotesViewEntryCollection.
So you would be able to code:
I often need to be able to print to another driver than the one currently in use (e.g. switch to a PDF printer). I now have to instruct the user to switch the driver manually, and then click my 'print' button.
Not very professional !
This functionality implies reading existing ...
