appendRTItem (RichTextItem - Java)

Appends the contents of one rich text item to another rich text item.

Defined in



public void appendRTItem(RichTextItem item)
    throws NotesException


RichTextItem item

The item to be appended. Cannot be null.


The insertion occurs at the end of the item. You cannot call appendRTItem after beginInsert.

In an open document in edit mode (the NotesDocument via NotesUIDocument.Document), changes made to rich text will not appear on screen immediately as they would with fields of other types. There is no method to cause this update to occur. You must close and reopen the document to see changes.
