SwitchView @Command (Formula Language)

Switches to the specified view or folder within the current database or, if a view or folder is not specified, displays the View menu so the user can select a view.

Note: This command is new with Release 6.


@Command( [SwitchView] )


@Command( [SwitchView] ; viewName )



Text. Optional. The name of the view or folder you want to switch to.


This command executes immediately. Use the ViewChange @command to execute after all @functions. See the "Order of evaluation for formula statements" topic for more details.

This command doesn't work from within a document or form, so you cannot use it to view a document through another form. Use @Command([SwitchForm]) instead.

You can use this command in Web applications, but you must use the viewName parameter.
