IBM Lotus Domino: Creating Action Buttons and Adding Style to Views

by Richard G. Ellis | May 2011 | Enterprise Articles IBM

Views serve as indexes to documents in a database. Virtually all Domino applications that contain composed documents also contain one or more views that facilitate locating and re-opening previously saved documents. Some views are intended for users, and some views are intended to be used only by internal processes or by formulas to look up values. Of course, you can use the same view for both users and lookups, but doing so can be problematic.

In the previous article by Richard G. Ellis, author of IBM Lotus Domino: Classic Web Application Development Techniques, we explored various view options for the web.

View templates are forms that can accommodate buttons, fields, and computed text as needed to enhance your views. Most views include a few Action buttons, so this article offers suggestions about including buttons on view templates. We will also take a look at adding style to views, opening documents in a separate window, and adding view scrollbars dynamically.
