NotesView.AllDocuments property for LotusScript

: Domino Designer
: notesview, notesdocumentcollection, lotusscript, properties
Melissa Snell1766 - 12 2008 / (1)
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:
Set view=db.getView("MyView")
Set col=view.AllDocuments

Open up all the document properties to Java/LS

: Domino Designer
: lotuscript, java, properties
Andy Harris759 - 06 2008 / (0)
The Document/NotesDocument classes currently allow read access to things like creation date, last modified, etc.
However, there are a lot more properties to documents than that (when created in the current file to name one).
These should be made available as properties like the others.

Add Properties to Field Class in LotusScript

: Domino Designer
: field, class, properties, lotusscript
Don McNally1498 - 12 2008 / (1)
The Field class in LotusScript only contains events.  It would be great if it contained properties like Value (read/write) to make it easier to manipulate in the events.  For example, if I want to handle the OnChange event in the client, I can use LotusScript but I have to write a ...

Make NotesDocument.Added Property accessible

: Domino Designer
: document, properties, added
Tim Paque2757 - 29 2008 / (3)
I don't know how many manhours this would have saved me, but ancient records finding their way back into dbs can often only be found by the added property.  However this property is currently only available through the API making it more difficult to gather docs by.

Include Form as a launch option in the database properties

: Domino Designer
: properties
Rajeev Menon3688 - 20 2007 / (2)

Just like there is option to launch a page on opening a database, I would like to see Form as another option. Instead of using the workaround a $$NavigatorTemplate for xxx....


Copy database properties in a table in clipboard memory

: Domino Designer
: database, properties, tabs, clipboard
Patrick Kwinten22013 - 07 2010 / (1)
with a simple copy and paste (in a rich text field) you can easily see all the properties, instead of having to go through the 7 individual tabs.


Add value/prevValue properties to a field

: Domino Designer
: field, properties, lotusscript
Slawek Rogulski8874 - 26 2007 / (2)
When I write code in a field event that give me a source parameter that represents the current field I would like to be able to get the current value of the field by simply doing this
and to return the previous value of the field (if any) ...

Copy Style

: Domino Designer
: style, properties
Patrick Kwinten22013 - 14 2009 / (1)
A great time saver would be to be able to copy all style settings for text, tables, hotspots and paste them somewhere else.

Navigation of properties window

: Domino Designer
: properties, navigation, userinterface
Rob Goudvis6585 - 08 2009 / (4)
I have a properties window pointing at the Form properties of an opened form. When I switch to another (opened) form the properties window will no longer show the Form properties, but switches to a Text properties window.
Why can't the former selection not be kept? I see no ...

Form Fields

: Domino Designer
: field, properties
Dwain Wuerfel2755 - 08 2011 / (2)
It would be nice if there could be some type of indication on the field, like there is for Authors/Readers, when you have the field, on standard forms, as computed, computed for display, or computed when composed and on xpages as Visible/Not Visible, Read Only/Not Read Only, and Disabled/Not Disabled.

Copy field properties in a table in clipboard memory

: Domino Designer
: clipboard, properties, field
Patrick Kwinten22013 - 03 2012 / (2)
 Just very hard to read all the properties without scrolling. copying them to compare them is even more difficult. A simple 'copy properties to clipboard' would be an improvement.

Database properties showing who made the last design change and when

: Domino Designer
: design, properties
Rajeev Menon3688 - 20 2007 / (3)
I don't think the User Details box on the database properties gives any idea about who made the last design change to the database. Whenever something goes wrong with a database, the first thing that we want to know is who made any design change to the database and when.

Design element property to add custom HTTP response headers

: Domino Designer
: http, properties, cache
Jeff Gilfelt1049 - 14 2008 / (0)
Give us a property to specify any http header and value ("expires" for instance) for the Domino server to append to the  http response. Make this property available in every design element.
@SetHTTPHeader only really works in the context of forms and pages.
I know this can be ...

Expose FTI properties to LotusScript

: Domino Designer
: full-text index, lotusscript, object, method, properties
Stephen McCulloch513 - 17 2010 / (1)
The only FTI properties of notesDatabase exposed to LotusScript are .FTIndexFrequency, .IsFTIndexed, .IsMultiDbSearch and  .LastFTIndexed.
The methods, CreateFTIndex(), RemoveFTIndex() and UpdateFTIndex() also exist.
Yet the Notes Client UI shows Count unindexed documents, Size, and the FTI settings for Case sensitivity, index breaks, index attachments and index encrypted fields.

Access any window in NotesUIWorkspace

: Domino Designer
: lotusscript, notesuiworkspace, properties
Alois Gruber1706 - 16 2008 / (2)
I would appreciate properties that allow me to get access to any open window in the clients. Things like a Documents property that returns a NotesUIDocumentCollection (new class, navigation like DocumentCollection). This way I could easily get access to related documents that might already be open in the client.

Allow NotesXspViewEntry to be passed as property to a custom control

: Domino Designer
: xpages, custom controls, properties
Peter Presnell26654 - 30 2009 / (1)
Custom controls now support a wide range of property types but they do not appear to recognize NotesXspViewEntry as a valid property type.  This would be especially useful for the Repeat control where you wish to output category entries as well as document entries found in a view.
Note: ...

For traditional Notes design elements show the properties box in stead of the Outline panel

: Domino Designer
: panel, dde, eclipse, properties
Patrick Kwinten22013 - 04 2010 / (2)
The "floating" properties is quiet annoying because you have to move it around the design area when it is on top of items.
For traditional Notes design elements (Forms, Views) it would be more handier to have the properties box appear in the Outline panel, simply because that panel ...

xPages Display Property

: Domino Designer
: xpages, properties, display
Dwain Wuerfel2755 - 13 2011 / (0)
The xPages team was extremely thoughtful in designing of the developers capabilities, but one capability I just needed which wasn't available was having the 'Computed Property Menu Button' on the Display tab for a viewpanel column.  Specifically the checkbox to 'Show values in this column as links'.
This would be ...

Collapse the style section in the XPage properties panel

: Domino Designer
: xpages, properties
Starrow Pan4715 - 18 2013 / (0)
The style section is relatively less used but takes much space in the properties panel, especially inconvenient on small screens like my laptop. If you want to edit the more useful section e.g. Resources, All properties, you have to scroll down. Collapse the style section by default, please.

New view/folder property for associating an image resource

: Domino Designer
: icons, properties, lotusscript, newidea
Randy Smith3913 - 29 2007 / (0)

OK, I'm not talking about associating an image resource to a "named" view/folder in an outline entry. This works great when you can access the actual view/folder design note at design time. What I would like to see is a way to programmatically associate an ...


Form Properties

: Domino Designer
: form, properties
Dwain Wuerfel2755 - 01 2008 / (2)
Make available an option to never save a form on the form properties so that whether the form is closed via a button or the ' X ' for the database tab you don't have to worry about coming up with some ingeniuos programming to prevent the user from being ...

Hide Hidden Design Elements from Dialogs

: Domino Designer
: designer, note, properties
Jordan Tenjeras1227 - 22 2008 / (4)

I hide design elements (pages, forms, view...) as a form of version control when making changes.  I'd like dialogs that point to other design elements to not display those that are hidden. Perhaps this can only be enforced if the note is hidden from all clients.

Examples: specifying a frame ...
