Making a form available to Web browsers

About this task

Because users do not have access to the Notes® menu structure in Web applications, you must provide a mechanism for users to create and edit documents. For example, you might design a view action for users to create a document, and a button on the form to edit the document.

To make a form available to Web users

About this task

You must use this technique to allow Web users to create a document from a form, but it also works in Notes applications.

Procedure

  1. Add a button, action, or hotspot to a form.
  2. In the Programmer's pane, choose the Click event and program the event with a formula or script that creates a document from the form.

    For example, this formula opens a new Main Topic document in the current database:

    @Command([Compose];"Main Topic")

    Use this formula to compose a document in the current database:

    @Command([Compose];"formname")

    Use this formula to compose a document from another database:

    @Command([Compose];"":"database";"formname")
