Examples: IsOnServer property (NotesSession - LotusScript®)

This function takes a person's last name, looks the name up in the People view of an Address Book, and returns the person's office phone number as a string. If the script is running on a server, the function uses the Domino® Directory on that server; otherwise, it uses the Domino® Directory on server Recife.

Function getOfficePhone( lname As String ) As String
  Dim session As New NotesSession
  Dim db As NotesDatabase
  Dim view As NotesView
  Dim doc As NotesDocument  
  If session.IsOnServer Then
    ' use the Address Book on the same server as the script
    Set db = New NotesDatabase( "", "names.nsf" )
    ' use the Address Book on server Recife
    Set db = New NotesDatabase( "Recife", "names.nsf" )
  End If
  Set view = db.GetView( "People" )
  Set doc = view.GetDocumentByKey( lname )
  getOfficePhone = doc.OfficePhoneNumber( 0 )
End Function
