|Displaying Notes Doclinks in Views in the Notes Client|
This is not from me but from Jerry Glover posted on notes.net. Normally there is no easy way to display Notes Doclinks in Client views. Well now there is. I admire people that are able to think around the corner.
The following recipe is a solution (or workaround depending on your point of view) to displaying a link icon in a view which, when clicked, opens a document in another database related to the one displayed in the current view. The solution takes advantage of the InViewEdit feature of Notes.Assumptions:
- There is a field on the displayed documents containing a UNID for the related document to be displayed.
- Actual in-view editing is not required for the view.
First, create a column to display an icon for the link. Enter a formula for the column value as follows:
This value (41) represents the tan dog-eared page icon which is similar to the standard doclink icon. It's important to use the variable assignment rather than a numeric literal because the Editable Column option will be grayed out and unavailable if a literal is used.
Next, bring up column properties and select the checkboxes for "Display values as icons" and "Editable Column"
Hope this helps,
Yes, it does.
Thank you very much.
