PermaLink notes.ini parameter to customize error messages28.02.2006 15:45
As Mikkel is posting on his blog there is a way to configure / override every error message in the Lotus Notes Client just by setting a notes.ini parameter. In combination with the possibility to write any notes.ini parameter using a policy, this is really usefull stuff.

PermaLink Lotus Domino 7.0.1 regression bug28.02.2006 15:18
As Vince Schuurman reported the 64K Limit for @Functions is back. According to Rocky Oliver this is a regression bug.
This regression bug may be related to another issue with the error message "Incorrect data type for operator or @Function: Text expected".

I opened a PMR and IBM is tracking the issue as SPR TTOS6J8JGV.

PermaLink Problem with shared columns24.02.2006 11:02
In Lotus Notes you can have shared columns, a pretty new feature. I discovered some pitfall which is not obvious and I tend to classify it as a bug.


PermaLink Using Macromedia Flash with IBM Lotus Domino13.02.2006 17:08
I was looking for a way to display a random photo in a BlogSsphere Block. Instead of writing a LotusScript or Java web agent I decided to to something new (to BlogSphere) also to proof the point that you can use IBM Lotus Domino for almost everything. So I wrote a very small Macromedia Flash file which loads the list of all available photos in a xml format to randomly choose one to display.


PermaLink Customize Domino Mailrules06.02.2006 14:46
I am using customized mailrules for some time, motivated by Chris Linfoot and dominopower. These customizations add several conditions to the template.
I was looking for a way to customize actions and customized the servers names.nsf even more.

First Task: Add an action to change the message importance
This action is available in the client mailrules but not for server mailrules. In fact, it is there but just hidden in the GUI.

1. Edit the Form (RulesDlg)
2. add "change message importance |2" to the combobox "action".

This one was easy, wasn't it? Want to do more?

Second Task: Add an action to add a field

1. Edit the form (rulesDlg)
2. add "add field|X" to the combobox "action"
3. add two fields "AddFieldName" and "AddFieldText" below of "behavior". Change the hidewhen formulas to "!@Contains(action;"X")"
4. Edit the ScriptLibrary "Rules"
5. In the Declarations add
Const ACT_AddField = &h00000331&
Dim ACT_sAddFieldName As Variant
Dim ACT_sAddFieldText As Variant
6. In the Function "ActionString" add
Case "X"
ActionString = GetString(ACT_AddField)
7. In the Sub "GetGlobalActionValues" add the lines
ACT_sAddFieldName = Note.GetItemValue("AddFieldName")(0)
ACT_sAddFieldText = Note.GetItemValue("AddFieldText")(0)
8. In the Sub "ActionParser" add
Case "X"
s_MAINFORMULA = s_MAINFORMULA+"@setfield("""+ACT_sAddFieldName+""";"""+ ACT_sAddFieldText + """)"
9. In the function "GetString" add
Case ACT_AddField
GetString = " Add " + ACT_sAddFieldText + " to field " + ACT_sAddFieldName




PermaLink Login to Domino by URL06.02.2006 09:48
I was asked if there is a way to log into Domino by URL if you know the users username and password. You may want to do so if you want to build some kind of single sign on solution between different webservers that don't support a common authentication method like LTPA Tokens in IBM Lotus Domino and IBM Websphere.
This is indeed possible and the trick is quite easy. The URL is (this example does not work as I do not provide a real username here):
/names.nsf?Login&username=John%20Doe&password=pwd&redirectTo=/log.nsf
