ViewChange @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.


@Command( [ViewChange] )


@Command( [ViewChange] ; viewName )



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


This command executes after all @functions. Use @Command([SwitchView]) to execute immediately. 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 SwitchForm instead.

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


This formula switches to the By Author view.
@Command([ViewChange]; "By Author")
